As we pulled into Fukushima at track 14 the Yamabiko 45 Super Express which was headed to Morioka pulled in at track 13! so we quickly jumped on and found seats, what luck! This train went full speed and was so fast! Absolutely whizzing past stations - no slowing down the trains passing through use the middle tracks well away from platforms. There were a lot of tunnels on the journey from Fukushima, lots of mountains I suppose...?
We did not catch the city loop bus. I have no idea what bus we caught as it didn't follow any of the routes on the bus map we'd got from the hotel. After realising we were thoroughly lost we got off in a street full of handicraft shops which was a small consolation. We found a Family Mart and asked where we were and with their directions were able to walk for 10 minutes to reach the park we'd been aiming for to go to the Morioka Culture & History Museum (¥300 per adult entry). There were some really good exhibits and artefacts though no English whatsoever so we could only appreciate them aesthetically.
