Need a book to read on the train?

Need a book to read on the train?

While I was transferring trains in Tokyo, I stumbled across another unique vending machine.  The books ranged from about $5.40 (540yen) to $7.30 (730yen) for these small A6 sized paperbacks.  It’s common to see small bookstores inside the gates of major train stations or larger ones just outside the ticket games, but this “book-vendi” was a first for me.

I didn’t pick up anything as they looked too difficult for me to read, but I quickly took a happy snap to share.

Happy 2017 New Year

Happy New Year everyone.

I hope you are having an amazing start to the year.  My site went down over the last few months, and I’ll be rebuilding it from scratch.  Hopefully I will bring back some of the previous content, as well as put up new content.   Please stay tuned for more to come.   Thank you everyone for visiting.
