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.

>>15005680
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?

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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

Guess it didn't show up today. Does it not do weekends, or have I got the times mixed up? I thought at 12:30 am on the east coast of the US, it was 1:30 pm in Japan? I was watching an hour ago and didn't see it either.

Ōita is missing; someone please add it

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%8Cita_Prefecture

>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]
