Shinkansen at Yasugawa

Several Shinkansen trains at Yasugawa seen from the Moriyama side of the river. Trains going from right to left are bound for Tokyo. Trains coming from the left will soon stop at Kyoto. Shinkansen passengers have a beautiful view of Mikamiyama and other scenery as they pass through Shiga Prefecture in comfort.

Audio for the long scene beginning at 0:47 was captured with an Audio Technica BP4025 stereo microphone and an Olympus LS100 recorder. I reduced low frequency sounds to match the sound with earlier clips, which were recorded by the camera. To appreciate the loudness of the Shinkansen, listen with good speakers or headphones. A bird call about 1:15 should be clearly audible. When I was recording, I heard that bird very clearly.
