East Rikuu Line

The Rikuu East Line (陸羽東線, Rikuu-tō-sen?) is a rail line in Japan. Part of the East Japan Railway Company (JR East) system, it runs from Kogota Station in Misato, Miyagi Prefecture to Shinjō Station in Shinjō, Yamagata Prefecture, acting as a connector between the Tōhoku Main Line, Ōu Main Line, and Tōhoku Shinkansen in the southern Tōhoku region, and provides access to north-western Miyagi Prefecture and north-eastern Yamagata Prefecture. It connects with the Ishinomaki Line and Tōhoku Main Line in Misato, the Tōhoku Shinkansen in Ōsaki, and the Ōu Main Line and Yamagata Shinkansen in Shinjō. Its name refers to the ancient provinces of Mutsu (奥) and Dewa (出) (or alternatively, the Meiji-era provinces of Rikuzen (前) and Uzen (前)), which the line connects.

    Ah! on Thanksgiving day, when from East and from West,
    From North and from South, come the pilgrim and guest,
    When the gray-haired New Englander sees round his board
    The old broken links of affection restored,
    When the care-wearied man seeks his mother once more,
    And the worn matron smiles where the girl smiled before.
    What moistens the lip and what brightens the eye?
    What calls back the past, like the rich Pumpkin pie?
    John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892)
