Kintetsu Shima Line - History

History

In the Meiji era, travelers coming to what is now Shima walked along a long-existing route that is now Mie Route 32, the Ise-Isobe road. As the Meiji era was near its end, in 1911, the government-owned Sangū Line (now owned by JR Central) was extended from the city of Ujiyamada (modern-day Ise) to Toba, therefore any plans for a railroad to Shima would assume Toba, not Ujiyamada, as the origin. As the Taishō period began, many plans were put forth by various members of the railroad industry in the 1910s but none were implemented.

    the lesbian archaeologist watches herself
    sifting her own life out from the shards she’s piecing,
    asking the clay all questions but her own.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    There is a constant in the average American imagination and taste, for which the past must be preserved and celebrated in full-scale authentic copy; a philosophy of immortality as duplication. It dominates the relation with the self, with the past, not infrequently with the present, always with History and, even, with the European tradition.
    Umberto Eco (b. 1932)

    The greatest honor history can bestow is that of peacemaker.
    Richard M. Nixon (1913–1995)
