This photograph is taken in the railway vehicle of Keiyo Line for Soga from Tokyo, when I went to Shin-Urayasu in Chiba Prefecture on an errand. So, it's a photograph of an usual daily life and is not special. Even if the vehicles which run the metropolitan area differs in the color of the exterior of a train, its structure and interior design of a train is equally the same. So, facing across the central passage, the seat is located in a line so that it may face each other, and the stationary rings for passengers which stand are located in a line on the seat. And then, the advertisement and promotion of the company are hung up from the ceiling and set on every load of both sides. The seat of the end of vehicles is a priority seat for an old person or a bodily inconvenient person. Air conditioning is cool in summer and heat in winter. Moreover, since there is broadcast of a station which the train stops the next, the passengers will not overshoot, if he/she hears carefully it. The action of the passenger who is in vehicle is various. Someone sleeps, someone is handling mobile phone, someone is chatting with the friend, and someone is looking the outside in front of door. When saying so, those who are doing a newspaper and reading decreased considerably those days. This phenomenon may be the proof to which the time changed into image society from printing culture.

A very cute photo of the inside of a commuter train. I love photos of vehicles and showing the inside of one is a fear to me, TFS!

Well taken shot while the wagon was in motion, Mikio, good sharp photo - not an easy task to do on a ride.
People are preoccupied, each in his/her own surrounding, some do the modern act of cellphone messages scroll.

Interesting daily candid of passenger train and its occupants. I note the seat arrangement is secondary to utilizing space for standing riders. Our California commuter trains still design the interiors with more seating, but I can see the advantage with this design for short distances and constant entering and leaving of passengers.
Interesting to understand and see other possibilities
Thanks for sharing,

A great place for people watching and plenty of photos to make in this train, they provide colourful visual aspect as they welcome attention, so by adding these colourful people to a the scene, photograph gives it own story to be formed in viewers mind. Perspective and depth is great, the exposure is fine despite harshness of light. It is a fascinating feature of our daily urban lives but also because it is entertaining experience as well. Finely done and good observation, Congrats.
