where This old guy didn’t even bat an eye at coming and sitting between a bunch of smelly (after a 10 hour flight) americans. I love the sounds of your video. It totally takes me back there.
I had the Shibuya JR sound as my phone ringtone for a while cause it always made me think of the trip.

I was surprised how you just keep getting pushed back farther and father into the train.

I figured no, because if they did there would be too many crimes committed to make it even possible.

Not all that dissimilar from a rush-hour subway ride in NYC which is one of the many reasons I prefer to work nights: reverse commute? Empty trains.

Ahh…breathing room.

I have wanted to film my commute to work, but have been afraid of being starred at. Why? I am 6’4″ and everyone stares at me anyways. I just don’t have the balls to do it…glad you did. Now the world can really see what it’s like!

I’ve always wanted this to be a two-way interaction kind of thing.

But not a hat.

The train ride isn’t claustrophobic because you mentally shut out all the people surrounding you. And come to think of it, that’s what foreigners DON’T do that makes people uncomfortable. I just realized that.

BTW, in the extened version of my bike ride to work that goes from my front door to the train, I stopped off at a public toilet because you suggested it. It’s in the chumbucket because it’s a little too long and overlaps what I already put out.

And even if they do, it’s not my problem.
