Sceneries as seen while cycling. Track of the ride. The most pleasant thing after Europe is lack of dirty graffiti on buildings.

Separated ways for pedestrians and cyclists.

🇯🇵 Tokyo, Japan, april 2017.

Sometimes cycle lane shifts from a sidewalk to the road.

🇯🇵 Tokyo, Japan, april 2017.

At some point, two traffic guards have appeared and closed the sidewalk and part of the road for one minute to make sure the truck can get to the construction site.

At high places like this, it feels like you are at the top of the world.

Vehicle.

🇯🇵 Tokyo, Japan, april 2017.

What's around.

🇯🇵 Tokyo, Japan, april 2017.

What a park without a toilet? Well, usually Russian park.

🇯🇵 Tokyo, Japan, april 2017.

Toilet plan at the station. There are both Western-style porcelain thrones for sitting and floor-level units for squatting. The female room is the biggest one, and that's the sign of a good design. For some reason, there is one urinal in the female room.

🇯🇵 Tokyo, Japan, april 2017.

Request to flush the used toilet paper, not to throw it into the trashcan.

🇯🇵 Tokyo, Japan, april 2017.

Control panel of the washlet. Even the difference between spray and bidet is shown. Toilets are free in Japan. There is at least one WC with free access in every convenience store and at every station.

🇯🇵 Tokyo, Japan, april 2017.

Source of the dirt on our streets is soil. Cars carry it all around with ease.

🇯🇵 Tokyo, Japan, april 2017.

Bicycles are more often to see than motorcycles and scooters.

🇯🇵 Tokyo, Japan, april 2017.

Really, who needs a footbridge? Very few people want to use it.

🇯🇵 Tokyo, Japan, april 2017.

Railway station.

🇯🇵 Tokyo, Japan, april 2017.

Couldn't follow my initial route because of emergency braking. There was an announcement in Japanese and English after it. I saw nothing special in people behavior like it's a usual thing to happen. All following announcements were in Japanese only, so (sadly) nothing to understand.

🇯🇵 Tokyo, Japan, april 2017.

It was like ten minutes stop in the middle of the track. Then we got to the next station. All people left the train, half of them left the station as well, the other half moved to the next track.

🇯🇵 Tokyo, Japan, april 2017.

Some sort of an express train arrived. Doors opened only in its rear cars. In Japan, it doesn't matter what train and what route you used to get to your destination. The only things that matter are enter and exit stations. So I decided to take this train to the next station called Shinjuku, which is also the biggest connecting hub for rail traffic in Tokyo.

🇯🇵 Tokyo, Japan, april 2017.

Time to look around and find the reason of emergency braking. Looks like some trees fell on the tracks. By the way, all trains stop during an earthquake.

🇯🇵 Tokyo, Japan, april 2017.

There are about one hundred exit points from Shinjuku station. There is a traffic jam on the road. It felt like it was traffic collapse because of strong wind. But no, it was just 18:00 (peak hour) and extremely big and crowded station.

🇯🇵 Tokyo, Japan, april 2017.

There were a lot of people for real. Suica card makes a beep after using at the gate. Mostly, these beeps didn't stop even for a second there. So I was able to get to my destination point on the metro. It lays deeply under the ground, so no trees to fall on the tracks like on JR lines above the ground.

🇯🇵 Tokyo, Japan, april 2017.

Time intervals are written with ~ instead of –. Working hours past midnight like till 02:00 are written as 26:00. It's 02:00 if you start at 02:00.

It's a pleasure to open a yogurt and see its lid clean.

Syllabary.

🇯🇵 Tokyo, Japan, april 2017.

Magazines are usually sold with something inside like perfume sampler, compact disc or whatever. Magazines are read from right to left. Feels like from the end to the start.

Let's look at the ceiling.

Narita airport aerodrome.

🇯🇵 Tokyo, Japan, april 2017.

The whole flight back to Moscow is like at noon—usual thing with west destinations. You fly 1 timezone per hour or so. Thanks to the window dimming, night feeling can be made at any time.
