Day 26 - What's your favorite/least favorite train line.  
This may be one of the best pictures of me ever! =^o^= Thanks Lindsay!! It's from the Thanksgiving party at my place a few weeks ago =^-^=

Day 26 - What's your favorite/least favorite train line.

Ahaha, can I pick them all?!?! I mean, I hate trains, so I don't have a favorite! I hate them all! Hate is a strong word, but I do! x.x;; Trains are no fun at all! But they are necessary. I live on the Den En Toshi line, which is crowded all of the time, even in the middle of the day, so I hate it the most ^^; I suppose the best might be one of the shinkansen (bullet train) lines? But I've never ridden on one, so I can't really say! One day I suppose that I will! ^^;

Riding shinkansens always make me sleepy :D But I love them, the speed is incredible.

As for the normal trainlines, my personal favourite is Hanwa line in Osaka. But as for Tokyo, I like Yamanote line because using it is so easy, and it has saved me from getting lost a few times :D Chuo and Sobu line then again...:| Ugh the crowds.

But I love trains...;.;
My favorite is the Yurikamome! Always and forever!!!!

Though the Shinkansen is lovely too!

I hate hate hate hate HATE Tokyu-Toyoko line. As much as I love Yokohama, I hate that line to death!

Be happy that you don't live on the keihin-tohoku line. that's the worst line ever.

I seriously don't get your train hate. I personally love them and LOVE not having to pay for gas and car insurance! Plus it's so awesome to see the city whipping by AND you don't have to worry about crazy drivers.

I actually am not a fan of the shinkansen. It makes me sick if I ride it for too long :/

I love trains! I lived in Den-en-Toshi sen for a year - its never been crowded!
We lived in different Tokyos/Yokohamas??

You must live farther from Shibuya than I do. When I get on the train, even in the middle of the day, there is usually no place to sit. Too crowded!

Aobadai eki, 30ppun to Shibuya, straight line.
Or maybe i just didnt go to Shibuya so often))
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on December 8th, 2010 01:24 pm (UTC)
!! Actually, you live at the same station as me! I'm surprised. I always find the trains really crowded, unless you take a local.

If you want a local friend, by any chance, I would really love to know someone who lives at my station that would be able to get lunch and stuff with me!! Your profile says that we are the same age, too!

Lived! Not live, unfortunately. I had to return to russia this june, well almost july.
Then, we had some sad events in my family, so i cant come back to japan for a while.
I know you through Jenya, she is my internet-friend.

I lived near Sakuradai-koen, cause there was my school's ryo.

But, i guess, to go to Shibuya was really rare. Haha, the time i remember the best, was when i went to Kids Land to buy Monchichi doll.

But really, i mostly went to other places, silent/calm ones - 反対 方 from Shibuya.

Sorry i didnt know you lived on the same station!! I really like your blog, its cool we were neighbours!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on December 9th, 2010 12:40 am (UTC)
Aww, that's too bad. T-T I really want someone in this area besides my BF who I can go to lunch with. Oh well, I guess I will keep looking!

Heyy! Boyfriend is a best friend! There is noone better a boyfriend to hang out with! I envy you! My boyfriend is still in Japan, i miss him so much. No friend can be a replacement..
