It’s not unusual to see people resting or sleeping in the trains in Japan. When you live and work in the world’s largest metropolitan area, I’m sure it can be draining. Tokyo and the neighboring Yokohama combined, grew to 37.8 million people as of 2015.
When I lived in New York City, I would often sleep on the subways. Remarkably, I wake up moments before I reach my station — even when I’m fully asleep and dreaming. I could only suspect that some part of the brain had a 6th sense, tracking where I was.
This is one of my favorite photos that I took in Japan back in 2014. I featured it in this post, when I talked about the then new to me, Pentax Q7. I used the very small 39mm equivalent, f1.9 prime lens, which makes for an outstanding and discrete street photography camera.
