Skinny Buildings

If property tax is based on the width of the building facing the street, then make it thin, deep, and tall instead.

Of Old Structures & Respectful Silence

image

Plenty of old style buildings are still being used in this island where folks are respectfully silent in public places namely jeepneys, boats and eating places. Felt wonderful to dine where conversations in other tables do not reach you – finally, the perfect scenario for eating out in this country­­ but only in Marinduque.

Tokyo Station

image

Such a beautiful railway station structure , a terminal hub for several lines from the Tokyo Metro to regional lines (JR including shinkansen).

image

Tokyo prefecture itself is vast already but I’ve noticed that there are quite a number of employees who work in Tokyo but live outside the metropolis, in Chiba Prefecture, Saitama Prefecture, among others.

image

Travel time is more or less an hour for nearby prefectures in the Kanto region and everyday, every train arrive and depart as scheduled.

Even though train fare (or transportation fare in general) is expensive as compared to food in Japan, however its efficiency and predictable arrival time to one’s destination (including multiple transfers between subway and JR) is all worth it. Only a fool (or stupidly rich as what one Japan article refer to) would ride the terribly expensive taxi (even from Narita airport). Unless maybe you’d want to pay for the experience of taxi doors opening and closing by itself (yes I’ve seen it myself without riding one).
