Kyoto Railway Museum

The Kyoto Railway Museum is a railway museum in Shimogyō-ku, Japan. The original Umekoji Steam Locomotive Museum opened in 1972, but was expanded and modernized in 2016, becoming the Kyoto Railway Museum; the museum is owned by West Japan Railway Company and is operated by Transportation Culture Promotion Foundation. The museum is divided into the following exhibition areas, including the 20-track roundhouse built in 1914. Promenade Main Hall Twilight Plaza Roundhouse Former Nijō Station This is a three-storey building completed in April 2016; the roundhouse was built surrounding a turntable. It is an Important Cultural Property designated by the government of Japan as the oldest reinforced-concrete car shed extant in Japan; this two-storey structure was part of Nijō Station in Kyoto until March 1996, was subsequently moved to the Umekoji Steam Locomotive Museum where if formed the entrance building, housing the museum shop. As of April 2016 a total of 53 rolling stock items are on display at the museum.

The museum was opened by Japanese National Railways on October 10, 1972 commemorating the centennial of the railway in Japan. When JNR was divided into regional companies in 1987, the museum was inherited by JR West. On 19 December 2012, JR West announced its plans to modernize and expand the Umekoji museum, it was announced on 18 December 2013 that the enlarged museum would be renamed the Kyoto Railway Museum. The construction cost was 7.0 billion yen. Once the expansion was complete, the new museum exhibit space covered 31,000 square meters, becoming the largest railway museum in Japan both in terms of floor space and the number of trains exhibited, surpassing JR East's Railway Museum in Saitama and JR Central's SCMaglev and Railway Park in Nagoya; the expansion became necessary due to the aging facilities of the Modern Transportation Museum in Osaka. The Modern Transportation Museum closed on 6 April 2014, the exhibits housed there were subsequently moved to the new railway museum in Kyoto.

The museum is 3 minutes on foot from Umekōji-Kyōtonishi Station. 京都鉄道博物館のすべて. Japan: JTB Publishing. 20 April 2016. ISBN 978-4533110726. Official website

Inherent Vice

Inherent Vice is a novel by American author Thomas Pynchon published in August 2009. A darkly comic detective novel set in 1970s California, the plot follows sleuth Larry "Doc" Sportello whose ex-girlfriend asks him to investigate a scheme involving a prominent land developer. Themes of drug culture and counterculture are prominently featured. Critical reception was positive, with reviewers describing Inherent Vice as one of Pynchon's more accessible works; the novel was adapted into a 2014 film of the same name. The setting is Los Angeles in 1970. Larry "Doc" Sportello, private investigator and pothead, receives a visit from his former girlfriend Shasta Fay Hepworth, now having an affair with the real-estate mogul Michael Z. "Mickey" Wolfmann. Shasta asks Doc to help foil a plot hatched by Mickey's wife Sloane and her lover, Riggs Warbling, to have Mickey admitted to a mental health institution. Soon afterwards a black militant named Tariq Khalil asks Doc to find Glen Charlock, one of Mickey's bodyguards—Tariq claims that Glen owes him money after their time spent together in prison.

Doc visits one of Mickey's developments but is knocked unconscious, awakes to find himself being questioned by his old LAPD nemesis, Det. Christian F. "Bigfoot" Bjornsen, who informs Doc that Glen Charlock has been shot dead and that Mickey has vanished. Doc is visited by Hope Harlingen, the widow of a musician named Coy Harlingen, who wants Doc to investigate rumours that Coy is still alive. Doc finds Coy in a nightclub, but upon hearing that Doc is investigating Mickey, Coy tells Doc about the Golden Fang, an old schooner suspected of bringing mysterious goods into port, upon which both Mickey and Shasta are rumoured to have departed. Doc learns that Coy has been working for the government as an informer and agent provocateur, but is allowed no contact with his family, he discovers that one Puck Beaverton had switched shifts with Glen Charlock on the day of Glen's death, that Mickey had been working at the time of his disappearance on a plan to atone for his sins as a ruthless entrepreneur.

Doc pays a visit to the HQ of Golden Fang Enterprises where he meets Japonica Fenway, a young runaway whom Doc had returned to her wealthy parents on a previous occasion. Japonica reveals. Doc visits the Institute, where he again encounters Coy Harlingen, deduces that Mickey has been apprehended by persons unknown. Doc is told that the attack during which Glen Charlock was shot was carried out by a group of vigilantes who are said to do dirty work for the LAPD. Doc discovers links between Puck Beaverton and a notorious loan shark named Adrian Prussia. After a visit from Trillium Fortnight, a female companion of Puck's, Doc travels to Las Vegas in search of Puck and Trillium's sexual threesome partner, Einar. In Las Vegas, Doc places a bet with the manager of the Kismet Lounge, Fabian Fazzo, that Mickey did not fake his own disappearance. Doc believes that he sees Mickey in the company of federal agents, subsequently hears of Mickey's scheme for a philanthropic housing project in the desert. Doc visits the site and encounters Riggs Warbling, architect of the housing project, who fears that Mickey has been "reprogrammed" and that the development abandoned, will be destroyed.

Back in Los Angeles, Doc learns that Puck Beaverton and Bigfoot's former policing partner, Vincent Indelicato, were sworn enemies. Adrian Prussia, used by the authorities as an unofficial assassin immune from the law, who employed Puck, permitted Puck to murder Vincent. Doc visits Adrian, who claims that he is behind the Golden Fang organization, while Puck contends that Glen was killed deliberately because he was supplying black-power groups with weapons. Doc is handcuffed and about to be given a lethal drug overdose, but escapes and kills both Puck and Adrian. Bigfoot, who has evidently been using Doc to investigate Vincent's death, picks Doc up, but sets him up with a huge quantity of stolen heroin. Doc performs a switch operation in order to hide the drugs and is contacted by Crocker Fenway who acts as an intermediary for the Golden Fang. Doc arranges a handover, his only condition being that Coy is released from all of his obligations and allowed to return to his family. After the handover has taken place and his lawyer Sauncho hear that the Golden Fang schooner is leaving port.

Along with the Coast Guard, they pursue the vessel, watch as it is abandoned after encountering an enormous surf wave. Sauncho and Doc decide to place a claim on the schooner. At the end of the novel, Doc receives a payment from Fabian Fazzo in settlement of his bet about Mickey, he learns that Coy has been reunited with Hope and their child, Amethyst. Critics reacted well to Inherent Vice for its mainstream appeal. In a favorable review, The New York Times' Michiko Kakutani called it "Pynchon Lite", describing it as "a simple shaggy-dog detective story that pits likable dopers against the Los Angeles Police Department and its'countersubversive' agents, a novel in which paranoia is less a political or metaphysical state than a byproduct of smoking too much weed". A review by academic Louis Menand in The New Yorker declared the novel "a lighthearted affair", while adding that there were still "a few familiar apocalyptic touches, a suggestion that countercultural California is a lost continent of freedom and play, swallowed up by the faceless forces of co-optation and repression".

In a scathing review in New York magazine, Sam Anderson wrote that "with no suspense and nothing at stake, Pynchon's manic energy just feels li
