在暖爐列車上,你會看到冬季的美景:純粹。
This is the view you will see on the Stove Train: Pure.

在列車裡,雪不時地會從關不牢的窗戶飄進來;列車也有販賣風乾的魷魚,車掌小姐會用車上火爐現烤,趁熱嚼著的時候魷魚香味盈溢鼻間。
On the train, the snow comes into the train through the window sometimes. You can buy some dried-squid on the train, and the train attendant grilled it for us. The smell of grilled dried-squid was full of the car.

在從五所原站前往太宰治故鄉的列車路上,我們還看到當年SMAP (沒錯就是有木村的那個SMAP) 繪製的車廂。
On the way from Tsugaru Goshogawara station to the hometown of Dazai, we also saw the car which is painted by famous idol group “SMAP”.

從金木站步行大約十分鐘不到,就可以看到太宰治紀念館。
Walking about 10 minutes from the station, we saw the Dazai Osamu Memorial museum.

雖說是太宰治紀念館,其實是太宰治出生長大的老家。
Dazai Osamu Memorial Museum is in fact the house where Dazai Osamu was born and grew up.

對於日式建築有興趣的人,一定不會想錯過太宰治的家。
Also, someone who loves Japanese building will definitely want to visit Dazai’s house.

經典的傳統日式建築架構下,卻有當時最被追逐的洋式家具與房間,竟然有地窖冰箱!
This is a traditional Japanese building with some western furnitures and rooms; there is even a underground refrigerator.

太宰治是人間失格的作者,比起他的作品,或許更熟悉的是他的軼聞,一次次自殺、一次次成了別人的自殺場景目擊者,然後消失。
Daiza is the author of "No Longer Human". However, people like me may know his anecdotes (try to commit suicide many times but became witness each time) rather than his work.

聽說日本的作家總是生前不得志、死後大鳴大放,或許也就太宰治能在有錢有勢的父親相挺下,自我憐憫地過。
It is said that Japanese writers don't usually achieve their goals before their deaths. Maybe Daiza could be the one who is supported by rich father but still suffered.
