A Minute of Escape

This was captured yesterday afternoon, when I was riding the Saikyo line from Shinjuku to Akabane.

I like spontaneous moments like this. I wasn’t expecting anything special to happen that day, until this train came. It’s very rare for me to catch commuter trains in Tokyo with a different-style of  seating arrangement. It was like riding an old romantic train (one of my Europe travel dreams) with strangers beside you.. but only in modern-time Japan setting. : )

I did not edit the colors nor added a background music. For moments like this, you just have to share it as it is. Raw and beautiful. 

I have actually witnessed the most beautiful sunrise (before this) while inside the same line (Saikyo) to Shinjuku in another random day. Couldn’t bother and look for my phone to take a video of it. I was too engrossed at that scenario happening in front of me.

Indeed, there is something special about each day. : )
