Japan Rail Tokyo

Welcome to the Tokyo trains! ^^

From when I was a kid I have enjoyed trains a lot, so traveling on the Tokyo trains each day has been a beautiful and interesting experience for me. I will never forget the first time I took a train in Tokyo, in fact I took this picture of the train lines at Shinjuku Station. The price of the trip depends on what station is your destination.

In Japanese trains, you should not talk with your phone during a trip train. Also, it is considered rude if your phone rings, so you should use silent mode.

In JR Tokyo trains you can see the train driver. I took some pictures ^^.

Despite the high population density in Tokyo, habits like forming lines for entering the trains allows everything to work in a proper way.

Ueno Station is much smaller than Shinjuku Station ^^.

Each side of the stairs is used to go downstairs or upstairs. Just follow the arrows.

Car (almost) void.

As you can notice, seats are very confortable. It is easy to fall asleep there.
