Summer is definitely my favorite season. Despite the Crocs everywhere.
Is something dirty happening with this fashionable guy wedging himself into the corner of the JR train, face and body pressed against the wall with one foot in a forward motion gesture? Actually he seemed to be on the telephone, a violation of standard courtesy rules on Japanese public transit. I love how he’s positioned himself into a false sense of privacy.
Nakano Twin Towers, what will be tallest and most expensive apartments in our inner suburb, is rising fast just south of the JR station. Rumor has it that owners can customize everything, and that the apartments sold out fast. Is it only me that thinks this name for the two symmetrical 30+ floor residential towers is somehow wrong?
This series of JR ads from the Bubble sum up Japan (and China’s) fascination with Xmas as a holiday particularly suited to young lovers. Hope everyone here is enjoying some Kentucky Fried Chicken, cakes made of equal parts strawberry and whipped cream, and of course, Wham!’s Last Christmas.
Has anyone else been on the East Side of the JR Shinjuku station? Lumine has this incredibly obscene robot with a giant, bulging crotch. I love how there are always people snapping photos. I am unclear what the commercial goal of this display is, but it is certainly obscene.
Notice in the reflection, below, this new lamb-inspired fall fashion: matching white furry vest and leg warmers. Nice!
Thanks, Tokyo Matt, for showing me this commercial spectacle.
Yes, transit is very sexy. At least to me. I love how this bento, sold at at the train station, celebrates JR, the national railway. That’s a lot of healthy goodness for 1,000 yen.
Who are these well-coiffed young men hanging outside the Nakano JR station? Nakano is perfect for people watching.
We are 5 feet from JR’s Chuo line.
