I'm surprised at the fact that trivial rail news like this became world's rail news.

More than 7 destinations including Isehara, more than 60km away from Kita-Ayase were added.

When I visited UK, I didn't think foods served in that nation was disappointing, except for mysterious food I ate in Lake District.

Green fuel has been researched for a long time. I've heard that alga is an important resource for extracting oil. But, as far as I know, none of the technologies is used for mass-production.
I'm looking forward to seeing alternative substance for crude oil.
