Train Stations and Train Platforms

Filed under: Domestic, Tokyo places, Trips — Tags: , , — myyearinjapan @ 12:01 am

I have been accused of being a train otaku, being train obsessed. I swear it’s not that bad, but I do enjoy trains. I’m not a big fan of driving, so living in a place where a car isn’t necessary is great. Too bad that’s not the case where I live now. (Sure I could live here without a car, but I wouldn’t be able to go very far, especially with all the snow we have at the moment.) I took these pictures while I was on my way to take pictures of and around stations on the yamanote line. I finally completed the second half of the Yamanote line project that I started 2 years ago, so expect those pictures to come up in the next couple of weeks.

kunitachi platform

The train platform by my old university thyat they've had under construction to raise up higher since before I went there and finally switched over to using the final raised track just a week before I visited. But they still have years of construction left for the rest of the station.

same station

Same station, looking across to the opposite platform.

no ads

I guess I was in Shinjuku station during a rare period between advertisements. Doesn't it look so bare without flashy ads to grab your attention?

yamanote line sign

Hey, look! A sign for Tokyo's Yamanote line in Shinjuku station, which I may have mentioned once or twice before...

Yamanote stuff

guy

I thought that guy standing on the platform there looked interesting so I decided to take his picture. By the way, he's about to board the Yamanote line! I am too, but going the other direction on the Yamanote loop.

    Tell me if you see a miniature Ringo Starr in any train station there… :3
