To get to Nagasaki from Hiroshima, you head west to Hakata Station in Fukuoka by Shinkansen. From there, you switch to the much slower express train for the trip to Nagasaki. The fairly new Shinkansen service on Kyushu doesn't go to Nagasaki.
That's O.K. because I got to enjoy the rural area at a leisurely pace. Not too far from Nagasaki, the train came to a halt for a short time. These trees and tilled field were right outside the window.
