The riverside route between 武田尾駅(Takedao-station) and 生瀬駅（Namase-station) that is not used is still remained now.
The rail was removed but the sleepers continue for 7kilometers along the Muko-river. It has 5tunnels and a railroad bridge on the Muko-river.
There was a signboard written "Keep out. Even if you have an accidents, we JR Western Japan will not be responsible to you" at the entrance. But we dared to step into the old train line site.

There was as black as pitch inside the tunnels. The tunnels were long (one of them was 300meters long)and curved. We couldn't see even one meter ahead. Only a flashlight was reliable for us. I was terrified of that darkness. It's like a test of our guts. I heard sounds something dripping down at around the center of the tunnel. Happily nothing appeared there.

When I was walking on the sleepers I remembered the movie"Stand by me"by Stephen King. Though I passed my youth long long ago.
Greens was so beautiful. But here is only about 30 kilometers north of Osaka city.
