Choo choo – all aboard! [The life-sized Thomas]

In our final months in Japan, we were lucky enough to win ticket in the lottery (yes, it really is that popular) to ride one-direction on a life-sized Thomas train after having attended a Thomas-themed festival.

The journey is put on by the Oigawa Railway company. While the round trip can be made from Tokyo in one day, I do warn you in advance – it was a seriously large endevour and we were all exhausted at the end of the dencha adventure.

As I mentioned, tickets to ride on this train are from a lottery only. Given this is Japan, this is a very popular event for young and old as you can see here! Our not-so-little boy had an absolute blast and thought it was the best day of his life to date!

A penny for your thoughts?
