Soliloquy of My Railway

I always use trains or subways for going to school or trips. I've used Tōkyū Tōyoko Line for an especially long time. Through my experiences as a passenger, this site suggests some ideas and measures to feel more convenient and comfortable when using trains and also stations. On the other hand, some of these suggestions call visitors to improve their manners. I hope you will compare your experiences and opinions with mine.
