My Daily Commute

From home to work… this is all I’ve seen for the past 12 days. Play your favorite musical soundtrack or the newest “Emma”version on Audible & it will be like we took a walk together!The vending machines closest to my apartment are mostly cigarettes, but the last machine is drinks & happens to carry Dr. PepperThe garden shop across the street from my apartment I love all the lanterns along my street this weekThe Santa Claus day care? I can’t decide if this is more creepy or cuteI have an official commuter pass for the train which is called an IC cardWarning against rush hour train crowds- some mornings I wake up early and sometimes I know just how sardines feel…or I take the local train instead of the crowded express train (I am usually on the train between 7:04 – 7:20)Up the stairs  & escalators past another card scanner to more vending machines- my favorite one at this station is full of ice cream…somehow 7:30 never seems like the right time to try it outFollow the signs down a long hallway/ wind tunnel, up an escalator to exit 4

There are lots of escalators and stairs in Tokyo train stations (and shopping buildings too)This week has called for morning tea & the side benefit of a stroll through the green space near Starbucks

No Bosphorus views on my commute this year… just this

I cross the street and walk past these businesses and apartments just before I arrive at school- the number of electrical lines is impressiveI’ve arrived at school… time to work 10 hours and do this again in reverse

  1. Love the pictures, Emily. Keep them coming. It always reminds me of the travels Randy and I took during our stay in Saudi Arabia.
