the unrush hour



In Japan's larger cities, the rush hour might well involve a bloke in white gloves shoving you onto a carriage till you're so far in that your face squashes up against the window while someone's briefcase rides up your backside as you try to make sure your hands don't touch anyone lest you be accused of groping.

Outside the big cities though, the situation is somewhat different. The rush hour might involve a train pulling in to the station, the doors opening, you stepping on to the train in a style of your choosing, walking to a seat at a steady pace and sitting down.

Your main concern will be finding a position which you deem suitable.....



...so that you can kick back and relax....



...and once you're nice and comfortable, you can happily doze off....


....having taken your shoes off first, of course.

Hahahahaha. So funny. I wish I could do this! But actually I normally ride a train so packed...the windows steamed up.

We have people sleeping like this on the Los Angeles subway. But they usually are smelly homeless people.

Psst...don't look now, but I think our jovial English blog proprietor is a actually vampire. Always got the impression EM was a pain in the neck...can I say he sucks too? :P

It sure is odd, seeing a normally crowded place empty.
