|On the day of the inspection, I was surprised by the number of users of Matsue Station, although it was a working day.
At the time of the inspection, I was helped by the vice station chief, and could move easily in the premises and to the platform.
I usually move by car and rarely use the train.
But I would like to use the train if I have the opportunity.
I felt that in this present-day car society of ours, if people sometimes use public transportation, not only those with disabilities, it is possible to have a different look of Matsue city.
