Yokohama Station under covers

Where did Yokohama Station go?  It’s under some kind of cover.  Is it getting a renovation like Tokyo Station?  No way.  Yokohama Station isn’t that historic.  The original Yokohama Station is actually Sakuragicho Station now.  What they’re most likely doing is cleaning the outside of the building.  In Japan, when buildings are being cleaned, they put up scaffolding and hide the entire thing in a green or blue fabric.

Sorry about my finger getting in the way.  It was a very windy day and hard to hold my phone.

A fuzzy blob is coming down to destroy Yokohama Station! Oh, that’s just my finger.

Picture of the Week 31 – Crowded Yokohama Station

Here’s a picture I took last night before my apartment troubles happened. I was waiting at Yokohama Station for the Tokaido Line train, and it turned out that it was delayed a few minutes. The Tokaido Line is usually crowded, but with a delay, there were so many people on the train, it was like getting stuffed into a sardine can. This picture was taken on the platform. I think this is what many people imagine Japanese train stations to be like.

This is included in another edition of “Show Me Japan.”

Yokohama Station and bad English

I’m at Yokohama Station now, and going home. It looks like it’ll rain. I saw some bad spelling on an information map. Can you see it?
