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 this post you can find a collection of pictures I took during different days. Lots of random pics!

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 ^^.
Beautiful landscape from this train of Tokyo!
Trains go by Tokyo some levels above the ground level.
Signs at Akiahbara Station.
Shinjuku Station, the biggest and busiest station in the world, with almost 4 million daily passengers. Incredible!
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.
Trains in Japan are always on time. Everything goes with clockwork precision.
Walls on the platform.
In Tokyo, sometimes you can find people wearing a kimono at train stations ^^.
Shinjuku Station. Always crowded.
In this picture you can see a Japan Rail employee on the platform. It is very common to find them on the platforms, checking that everything works properly.
Car (almost) void.
As you can notice, seats are very confortable. It is easy to fall asleep there.

In Tokyo, the norm for escalators is standing on the left side.
One of the more than 200 exits of Shinjuku Station.
Everyday I got out from Shinjuku Station using a different exit. Always lost!
I hope you enjoyed these pics from the Japan Rail Tokyo trains ^^.
