"Musashisakai Station Under Construction / Seibu Tamagawa Line"

This set of clips begins with a transfer walk from the JR part of Musashisakai Station, to the Seibu-Tamagawa Line part of the same station.  The renovated station is still under construction, so when it's complete, transfers will probably be easier.

Once I get on the Seibu-Tamagawa Line, I show the view out the front cab between the stations of that short line.  The train for most of the video clips was painted all-white (as opposed to the Seibu Line's usual yellow) and had the kanji for "haru" (spring) on it.

On the other end of the Tamagawa Line from Musashisakai Station, I walk along the Tamagawa River and - later - take a bike ride.

A lot of new construction on this station has been completed, but there is a bit to go yet, with some of the under-construction parts visible in this video.

Watching an all white (as opposed to the Seibu Line's usual yellow) "Haru" (Spring) train leave Kyoteijomae Station.

There's a boat racing place right next to this station.  The story goes that Fuchu residents allow racing (with betting) in exchange for low property taxes (thanks to the revenue the race-betting brings to the city).
