nice compo ;)
I'll stand, there don't seem to be any seats! :-)
Everyone is always standing during rush hour in the morning because they put the seats up so there's more space in the train cart :D
Nice shot! I love the way most Japanese commuters neatly keep their feet to themselves. :) There's always somebody who sprawls halfway across the aisle, of course, but generally speaking they tuck themselves in. Thanks, fellow commuters!
I've had many a battles with men who like to spread their knees when sitting but generally the commuters are pretty good at not bothering their neighbors :D
I always find Japanese people so polite and orderly. I can'timagine them sitting another way!
Oh you should see some drunk people on the last train...they sprawl all over the seats sometimes! Quite entertaining, too ;D
I love this - the guy with the huge guitar or cello case is funny. But the train is a lot less crowded than I've imagined Japanese trains!
Well it was in the afternoon on a weekend, not the most crowded time. The mornings on weekdays are crazy! :D
Spit and polished and orderly too!!! You'll never see that in a bus or subway in the states!!!
It was almost as if they were posing for me :D
And there's even music. A wonderful picture indeeed ! Please have a good Thursday.
Thank you Robert :D

Leif! Are you really coming to Japan? Yay!
All of the shoes look sensible, comfortable to wear. But there are so many lace-up shoes—not so convenient for removing them (and putting them on) in the foyer at home.I really miss the feel of tatami under my feet at home. Maybe I should get these.
I like tatami, too :D
Wow, that is a wonderful shot... a guitar and lots of sneakers... love it!
Thank you Madge! I really liked how the instrument was in the picture, too :D
Excellent capture, Kaori!
THank you Louis!!!
I would hate to have to get into a set of these shoes in the genkan 玄関 if I was in a hurry to catch a train.
Fantastic shot - well composed!
Wooo, I know I'm a lot late to post a comment on this article but what a nice shot Kaori!!! This photo really captures 'Japanese' characteristic :)
Is there ever really a "late" for commenting on a post? I find it amusing/disturbin/surprising... don't really know... that visitors to a blog rarely go back to earlier posts... I digress...I'll refrain from asking about your "foot thing", Kaori. LOL! But this subway shot of the shoes and musical instrument case is great, especially in black and white.I miss visiting your blog... I am still in China accessing social media through a proxy, but it's sloooow and keeps crashing.
