This photograph was taken in the Shinjuku station yard of JR in January, last year. Shinjuku Station is a terminal station located in the newly emerging city center in Tokyo. The five-company office of JR, Keio Electric Railway, Odakyu Electric Railway, Tokyo Metro, and the Transportation Bureau of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government has ridden in now. Moreover, the numbers of one-day average getting-on-and-off persons are about 3,260,000 people and most busy stations in the world. Since this time was a time zone before commuting at 6:00 early morning, station yard was made leisurely. This photograph was taken towards the direction of the Shinjuku east gate exit. The platform number according to route is displayed on the direction board of a station, and arrival time is blinking to the electrical board in this station. Generally, a passenger passes a ticket gate with the ticket of paper or magnetic-type electronic money. As for the guidance explanation of station yard, there is in Japanese and English. And, Chinese and Korean are written together at main stations in many cases.

i can understand there is a "Rapid" train to Tokyo, and probably therre is a "regular" one that makes stops on the way, Mikio. The signs illuminating the baige wall-tiles and the shining floor - and on my second look saw a wonderful reflection on the ceiling. That's a nice element collected.
Fine clarity, depth and light managed.

An interesting capture of daily life in Tokyo. I am pleased to see that there are informations in English too. Maybe I could manage here, if I ever came to this country. Our eldest daughter is in Tokyo at this very moment, she has reported that there are no problems at all for westerners.

The station as such could have been almost anywhere in the world, but the signs add a lot of local flavour and make this look exciting to me. There are many colours that also brighten the view. Sometimes I don't like to be in a big railway station early in the morning because of a feeling of unsafety, but I think in Tokyo that should not be any problem. You can feel proud of Japan's reputation for safety.

Excellent view in to nicely organized city train station. I like the arrangement staring with the large sign board and the view to smaller boards behind. The people add nice life to the scene.
Very well done.

A lively train station, but I am sure you are attracted more to specks of vivid colours as much as we do, being the most influential part of the scene. There's a feel of depth, good clarity, perspective and full of lively activity around. A nice piece of daily life capture well taken, Congrats

I like the colored signs and the patterns that they make in this photo. Lately, I am starting to appreciate train stations as subjects for photography. Well seen and recorded.

Obviously a large corridor, clean and solid construction, with plenty of electronic train information signs. Glad to hear the high ridership which is the opposite of many of our U.S. train systems.
Thanks for sharing,
