I got it in my head that I wanted to take the entire length of the Koumi line, so I set out early from Matsumoto, then caught the two-car train from Kobuchizawa. I expected an hour layover in Komoro before heading back, so last night I skimmed online for something interesting in that town. And boy, did I find it! Beside the train station is the park where a homeless Zen monk named Yokoyama Sodo practiced zazen and played a “flute” made from a folded leaf. The park was aglow with the ruby and gold of autumn, so not a bad place to pass an hour. All the better that beside the spot where Yokoyama-san meditated was a small building with photos and a thick book of his songs.
