Being the only foreigner on the train. It happened again today as I made my way home on the Yamanote line. The train was packed and I eventually found a seat and although there was an empty seat next to me everyone continued to stand in their sardine can state. I showered and remembered deodorant, I had brushed my teeth and put on a little make up. So, why won’t people sit next to me. Finally after several stops a women much older than me finally sat down.
I’ll miss riding the train.
