No this article isn’t about some hot, steamy, tryst I had on one of the train cars of the Tsukuba Express. I wish it wa…wait! Mom are you reading this? Umm…I mean…I would never even think of doing something so despicable! Hee hee hee? LOL .
I had to go to Tokyo when I visited Saint Luke’s Hospital near Tsukiji Station and on my way back I happened to notice that the entrance that I take to go home from Akihabara was missing something. Ah yes, just a couple of weeks ago there were these heart decorations adorning the TX (Tsukuba Express) entrance. You could generally see a small flock of commuters stopping to take pictures of them with their cell phones. I love how here in Japan, people can find even the simplest things so fascinating (I have to say I’m like that, too).
I stopped in Asakusa before going to the Blue Man Show as well, and took a picture of this dragon artwork in the station. I would definitely say that NONE of train stations in Georgia look anything like this, unless some major change happened since I’ve been gone. People don’t take a whole lot of pride in the Georgia Metro Atlanta Rail and Transit Authority (MARTA for short) trains & buses.
I wonder what the coolest Japanese train station artwork is. There are just so many different stations with so many cool things, it’s hard for me to say. Like that stained glass window at Moriya station. It’s so cool-looking, yet Moriya isn’t what you’d call a bustling city…not at all. I would think the coolest train station decorations would be in the busier areas of Tokyo, or in Osaka, Kyoto, etc.. This may require a bit of research, but I guess I need to do a bit more traveling first.
What’s the coolest train station artwork you’ve ever seen?
