A Kiosk


Here is a platform at one of the busiest stations in Tokyo. It is very busy in the morning.(The photo is shooted in the afternoon.) On both sides of the platform are coming trains every two or three minutes during rush hour. During that time, the inside of the trains are too jammed to fail to fall one's hand bags with no hands....

By the way, this shop, a Kiosk, sells many kinds of stuffs, from newspapers and magazines to food and drink. Now, most of the clerks have a professional skill. They can hand over the change very fast after taking money. It looks like a little magic!

Kaa: Most Kiosks are closed on Sunday and some are open. They are closed at about 8pm, but I don't know exactly.

jing: They are neat. Japanese like the smallness and contraction:-) For example, small car, small houses, tiny dishes in Japanese cuisine.. Plus, we call "negotiation" "nego", "connection" "cone" and "Los Angels" just "Los", though it seems very strange.

about those "shortened" words, very interesting!
And I know in China, many people like many products made in Japan, esp. those small productions!
They are very nice and cute~~
