nice train pic’s
Thanks. I have been stuck in the apartment all week with a cold, so feeling better today and the warm weather, it was a good excuse to get out 🙂
Egads! You beat me at getting better :p I think I’m just well enough today that I stopped coughing up crap. Though, I have been going to classes for the past week 🙂
Remembering my 2005’s trip.. Always impressed by your pics ! Nice
Woah ! Awesome pictures this round ! I never knew they put the watch in there; tough i have frequently seen drivers with that watch as they walk to or from a train. I also personally love the fact that the JR uniforms are pretty cool, and they keep them in such perfect condition; never saw any JR staff with a wrinkled uniform.
I also love the pictures of the drivers getting in and out of the train; knowing the Tokyo train shedule very well; you wouldn’t have had to wait long between those shots on the stations.
If you like trains; a nice way to see the love Japanese have for them is to visit Little TGV in Akihabara. It’s a cafe where everything is dedicated to the love of trains, every drink on the menu is named after some train line from new or old, the staff dress up as drivers; some are actually drivers working there to share their love part time at the cafe; or aspiring to be them.
Very interesting place to visit, and it’s a welcome change from the maid cafe overload 🙂
I would like to try that out. I will look out for that cafe next time I go to Akiba. thx 🙂
I’m always amazed by the trains in Tokyo. A nice mix of shapes and sizes and always clean as a whistle! In the Netherlands it’s quite rare to see a train so clean.
D700 back in action… 🙂 Hope the cold gave you some satori on photography.
I have the feeling of a richer picture.
Good stuff as usual! Love the pics
The Shinkasen by a nose.
Looks like a High Tech missle heading straight for you.
Japan Trains, Japan Photo-Post http://bit.ly/aDfzpv A great display of cleanliness and on time preformance. Japan should be very proud. I know i am repeating myself but gotta make it over there someday, and meet up w/ you. Would like to collect a train from everyline there. do they still sell them at the stations? And do they still sell the bottles of tea w/the train covers.
As always great pics.
Have a great weekend.
ja mata ne.
Oh no 🙁 How will I know which one is the yamanote line? I can’t read much Kanji yet x.x Does it say on the side of the train what it is … either in Hiragana or Katakana?
All the train lines are color coded; as well as the name should be written in plain romanji above the tracks or in the stations , signs leading to the respective tracks.
No worries man 🙂
Yamanote line is green. You should find it really easy. It is well labeled in English at stations and on platform. good luck 🙂
I am always struck by how clean Japan is compared to the US or UK rail system.
You can say Japan Vs. The World.
Litter is hardly visible.
Someday I will get to ride those trains.
