By The Window I

We spent a lot of time in the trains while vacationing in Japan and we enjoyed every minute of our train travel. Sometimes, a period of inactivity is nice too. I'll be putting up the posts with similar themes in the next few days. Less gibberish, just photos for a few days. :p

If you want to read more about our adventures in Japan, hop over to Urutora No Hi.

  3. @Nick,
    If you're talking about taking a train in Malaysia, I haven't been on one for a long time too. :D

  4. @zezebel,
    I wanted to convey a similar mood in the photos above. Usually one would look out of the window and be silent (hence the melancholic mood) and not grinning by oneself, right?

    His PSP is already 4 years old. He now plays a Nintendo DSi instead (see 4th photo). ;)

  6. Were you on a bullet train?

  7. How clean everything looks! I've been on a train overnight and it can get really boring if there's nothing to do.

  8. @Yatie,
    Try physco Kheirul secara "halus". Masa nak pegi for our 3rd trip dulu pun sebenarnya Zaini liat nak setuju tapi I kept on providing him info/promotions/nonsense abt Japan sampai one day dia cakap OK for us to go. Tengok2 sekarang, dah 7 kali pegi. Heh heh

    Ur Japanese fren duduk kat mana?

  9. @ECL,
    First & fourth photo were taken in a bullet train. Second photo was taken in an electric train going to Bessho Onsen in Nagano (quite a rural area).

  10. @jellybelly,
    I spent my night in an overnight train going from one carriage to the other (and maybe caused disturbance to other passengers in the process). :D

    I agree, with nothing to do (no view outside at night too) a night trip can get boring.

  11. Nice series of pictures - good candid shots. The box-meal and bottled drink look interesting. Thanks for sharing, Lina. Looking forward to the others. A day-ride beats a night-ride anytime when it comes to looking out the window.

  15. So many empty seats in the 2nd pix... something very unlikely to happen in our commuter train here... as if you reserved the whole carriage just for you. :P

    Btw, thank you for the little Nemo! :D
    The mail came on Friday, I think. But I was away for few days, so just saw it last night, very cute!

  16. @Evan's Mom,
    The train in that photo is a village train so there weren't many people on board except a couple of fellow tourists visiting a resort area that we were also heading too. :)

    Your welcome. Sorry it's not much though.

  17. Nice photos! Sometimes photos look better when the subject you are shooting are natural and not posing for you!

  18. @foong,
    I agree and I am somewhat addicted on taking candid photos. So if you see around, beware! I might take your photo without you knowing. XD

  19. the train's so empty lina!! quite unusual in Japan.

  20. @Ayie,
    Not that unsual actually, if you travel on off peak period and you board the train on the first station, you can actually get an empty train. Well, at least until the next station. ;) Even in Tokyo.
