The Morning Rush

A pretty tame crowd at Ueno Station
compared to this experienced at Hakata Station. Crowds in big stations scare me.
My entry for this week's  Budget Trouble : Show Me Japan.

I love participating this Show Me Japan thingy. It's a great excuse to dig my album archive and look for photos and also a great way to convince myself to throw caution to the wind and spend money I don't have and visit Japan over and over and over again. Wanna bet whether we'll make it to Japan again this year? *^-^*


  1. Another trip to Japan sometime this year?

  2. @Mei Teng,
    We'll wait and see how it goes this year. ;)

  3. Yes you will!!! You will make it to Japan this year!!! You have to! How else are we going to see you, huh? :-)
    And yes, big crowds on train platforms scare me, too.

  4. @Anna & Yoshi,
    Well, you guys have to come here otherwise. :D

    We haven't start talking about our future trip yet, which is kinda late if we are planning to do. Zaini and I usually starts planning right after our trip. XD But better late than never, eh?

  5. Haha, I'm surprised Ueno had fewer people than Hakata! o.O

    Crowds in big stations don't scare me, but they do annoy me. I occasionally (often) wish I could use my umbrella to beat down slow people out of my way. ^^;

  6. Just returned from a working day at Tokyo yesterday... the crowds do tire me... always feel so glad to be back in my village after that...

  7. @Ri,
    You bad man, you. I'd better stay out of the way if I see you and your umbrella at any station! XD

  8. Ah Ueno, I miss it.

    I think you were in the wrong place to get a shot of the crowds. It would be interesting to see what someone could shoot in the are around the escalators.

  9. @sixmats,
    Yeah, I know. It should be interesting trying to get in position and take photo of the crowd at the escalators.

    Don't know whether I'd be willing to try and do it in future though. ;)

  10. @Lrong,
    A day trip to/fro Tokyo?

    A day or two jostling with the morning crowd maybe interesting, but for me too, I can't imagine doing it everyday like those in big cities endured. Ugh.

  11. The morning rush is good for exercise.. but only for youth. lol

  12. i dont belong in a crowd :) bet u will b in Japan not far in the future :)

  13. @bengbeng,
    I'm crossing my fingers! :)

  14. Lina, hopefully you can go to Japan again this year, hehe

  15. Hope you can make it to Japan again this year too :-) as for me, I have to postpone it to 2012 :D Crowds in a station freaks me out at times :)

  16. @cuteandcurls,
    Aawww... you have to postpone your trip? Well, better late than never, right? :)

    If crowds freaks you out, you have to avoid early morning rush at bigger train station especially in Tokyo. You can lose your bearings if you are say, at Tokyo Station and all you can see is a sea of people walking and running in all directions. o.O

  17. We are waiting for you guys to come to Japan!!! Don't be scared. Our town is so empty and pretty rural when compared to Tokyo:)
    Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful Sunday.

  18. @Yoshi,
    Oh dearies... Now you just make me want to save up doubly hard! :D

    Empty and rural you say? Just the place we like to get ourselves lost in. XD

    Have a wonderful Sunday too!

  19. And while you get lost here, you can do so in very stylish "I♡Tochigi" t-shirts. I got 2 today, now I just need to find one more for your young one, and then it's off to the post office. :-)

  20. @Anna,
    I was just thinking of doing the exact same thing while reading Yoshi's comment. :D

    You are such a sweetie and I can't wait to get to show-off the t-shirts! :)

  21. it certainly looks crowded. i can't imagine of getting a seat on the train.

  22. @LR,
    You can get a seat if you are at the first station or if you are lucky. :D
