14. Nankai

Nankai Electric Railway is a company serving the area between Osaka and Wakayama as well as the Kansai Airport. Two main lines and six branch lines.

I spent a few hours on the branch lines around Wakayama (Wakayamako "Wakayama Harbour", Kada, Tanagawa).
Nankai serves also the Kansai Airport with a branch line from Izumisano. The Rapi:t Airport Service uses trains that look a bit different. Sorry, no better picture!
I also took the other main line, the Koya line, from Osaka to Hashimoto.
Hashimoto station is shared between Nankai and JR Wakayama line. The two pictures below are from the JR line.
