We saw the East i at Omiya station

If it says "Out of service" on the electronic bulletin board, you can see a special train, if you are lucky.

When we visited Karuizawa some years ago, we were waiting for our Hokuriku Shinkansen. On the electronic board, it said “Out of Service” and something special happened!

“The East i is coming!”

Does the East i bring luck to us?

Doctor Yellow is known as lucky charm, but we are not sure if the East i brings good luck. But it was an amazing moment, we could see such a special train with our own eyes. 

All windows were closed, maybe lots of secrets equipment is on board. It was such a short moment, but we were really happy!
