Well obviously you drive a train. Short routes can be fun, but the Maglev is two stations, point A to B, and the entire run is 5-7 minutes. Now do you think that's worth the overpriced DLC cost of $25? That's why most people weren't interested in it at all. There's nothing to do in it really.

The allocation seems to be disproportional, read below:

Last December I ride from Osaka to Tokyo for comiket on its first day's morning, since it is Dec29 so all those non-smoking cars are full and I can only get a seat in the smoking car (come to think of it, as Shin-Osaka is the first station, I should probably check the last few cars in the train that would not assign seats). The smoking car was quite empty but those smokes (which I have never been to such a smokey environment before) make me feel dizzy and trigger uncomfort in my respiratory track which make me cough till now. (well that's probably what I deserve by settling with a seat in smoking car)

p.s. there're actually quite a few women smoker on that car back then so sex is probably not an issue there
p.p.s seems like N700 trains does not have smoking cars. Can I expect more rolling stocks being replaced by N700?

>> No.15006138

I was using JR Pass so it's a Hikari train. Hikari still have some non-N700. (See http://www.shinkansen-yoyaku.com/iphone/smoking/shanai/smoking-seat.html ) (According to the article, it seems like all of them will be changed to N700 in ~2019 and thus effectively banned smoking)

90%+ of it in the central area (I call "central whatever is inside the Yamanote loop). The rails on the surface are mostly JR and other lines.

Tokyo Metro lines that continues onto others lines resurface afterwards too.

Once I tried the Grancar because why the fuck not. It was glorious but expensive as fuck.

>> No.15123421

Yeah I did, the carriage was empty so we didn't care.

And yes I'm glad to be a tourist again. I actually seen less of Japan while working there 2 years than I do in 3 weeks as a tourist.

I wish there was more routes with GranClass. I'm pretty much done visiting the Tohoku area. Used that Hayabusa way too much. Wanted to head to Shin-Hakodate in GranClass last month but was fully booked on the day I traveled. Green Car is still good enough.

I don't care much about large seats or legroom, I just want a quiet and empty carriage.

A bit I guess, but you have people sitting with their legs crossed on their seat too so it's exactly the same in the end. My feets don't smell and I didn't put my shoes in there on purpose.

Conductors never told us anything (maybe they we afraid since we looked non Japanese).

>And yes I'm glad to be a tourist again. I actually seen less of Japan while working there 2 years than I do in 3 weeks as a tourist.

That pretty much depends on how you live. I usually set out on Friday evening on early Saturday morning and get back to Tokyo late Sunday. But there's always so much more to see.

Damn, I can't wait to get back, this 2 month project handover is killing me. I can hardly tolerate EU fuckery after I got used to stuff in Japan.

>> No.15123594

Sure weekends were possible, but that prevents you from going far unless you take the plane.

Also the money spent was a deal breaker for me. I was earning enough (45万 a month), but shelling out 30~40K in Train Fare just for a weekend was just way too much. I like the Shinkansen when I'm not paying for it (JRP basically).

I would only pay that much if I had a specific event / concert to attend, not just to do normal tourism.

I hate most of aspects of EU as well and miss Japanese trains, but my salary here is higher, my working hours way lower and I have 5+ weeks of paid vacations which I almost exclusively spend in Japan so I don't mind it too much.

Following in from a while ago, I did some research. I got a rough idea of the metro layout.

Yamanote line appears to be completely on the surface, so it's all red. Multiple stations and rails surrounding and connected to Tokyo Station seem to be all underground, but I could be wrong.

How about the rest, though? How much of the Tokyo Metro is on the surface and underground?

From Wikipedia:

Due to the age of the Marunouchi Line and the relative shallowness at which it runs, at several points in central Tokyo trains run at or above ground level. These include Yotsuya Station, the Kanda River near Ochanomizu Station (see comfy image), and between Kōrakuen and Myōgadani stations.

And how do you want them to check? Do you expect some kind of Global Citizenship database somewhere?

I have 2 passports to my name, could apply for a third one technically and no one can check anything. Just don't travel to/from Japan with your other passports and choose the one which is the most suited depending on the destination.

Technically it isn't a terminus. It's a reversal station.

However you're not wrong. The mine we can see is the Ban Etsu West running from Niitsu to Koriyama. While the whole line goes from these two stations, only the limited expresses and special train do. All local trains terminates at Aizu Wakamatsu station, which is my you can often see people running from one platform to the other.

Also the point of this stream isn't really to find something funny all the time... It's more of a means of relaxation we have.. It's very comfy. But yes sometime you can see funny and rare stuff happening. (Special event, special train, maintenance stuff, people taking pictures, someone from /jp/ waving at the camera etc etc)

Ōita is missing; someone please add it


>The origins of the name Ōita are documented in a report from the early 8th century called the Chronicles of Bungo (豊後国風土記 bungonokuni-fudoki?) .[4] According to the document, when Empress Keikō visited the Kyushu region, stopping first in Toyo-no-kuni, she exclaimed that 'This is a vast land, indeed. It shall be known as Okita-Kuni!' Okita-Kuni, meaning "Land of the Great Fields", later came to be written as "Ōita". Present day interpretations based on Ōita's topography state that Oita's name comes from "Okita", meaning "many fields", rather than "vast" or "great" field, because of Ōita's complex terrain.[4]
