From Osaka to Sapporo by Train - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • From Osaka to Sapporo by Train

    Hi,everyone !
    This is one ride you must take if you ever visit Japan,
    The Twilight Express departs Osaka at 11:00 a.m. and arrives the next
    morning in Sapporo ,well I should say around lunch time.
    what you see in these pics are the salon car ,your regular breakfast
    and the last pic Masako and my son Shota.
    If you are looking for a long peaceful ride with a beautiful sunset as you ride by the sea of Japan this the perfect ride. The train stops along the way but
    for very brief periods so there isn't time to get off and look around.
    If you are traveling on a budget you can bring your food onboard.
    some people compares it to the Oriental Express!
    enjoy the pics

    Looks very nice, but where are all the people? My wife is half Japanese, and we'd love to visit someday.

      Hello,Hansen san!
      Good question, well for about 600. U.S. dollars per person plus meals that
      makes it hard for the average japanese to make this journey this being the cost of a ticket during off season.
      During our trip most of the passengers were retired businessmen, older couples and very few families.which made for a quiet journey all the way to
      Reservations are required for lunch and dinner the cost being of about 120.U.S dollars per head.
      Well in our plans for the coming year we hope to make the journey from
      Sapporo to Osaka to be able to see what we missed on the way up.
      Perhaps then the train will be full of people!
      We live in Kobe and since they built the airport it takes about an hour and forty minutes to fly to Hokkaido.
      But a journey by train still holds a bit of a romantic appeal, don't you agree?
      All aboard!!!!!!!!

        With gas prices up, hopefully we'll see more and more passengers trains here in the U.S. We're only a hundred years or so behind the rest of the world.
