In General Bloody Trains - delayed post Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #1 New 09-28-2005 02:07 AM
Ahhh, back in Japan again, somehow managed to convince the company to send me over on a business trip. 15th visit here in the last 10 years, you`d think by now that I could figure out the bloody Narita Express……

Reserved seats only on the NEX so a bit surprised when someone else had a ticket to sit in my seat! Close examination of the tickets highlighted the problem, we were on the 16:46 not the 16:16! I suppose it`s pretty easy to confuse 16 and 46 in Japanese, at least that`s my excuse. Already done 16 hours of travel, now we have to stand the whole bloody way into Tokyo, and in the section between cars without air conditioning too.

“Eh!! this train doesn`t go to Shinjuku?” I asked the ticket inspector, “this train is for Ofuna” he said ...

Had to jump off at Tokyo station, and do a quick 100m dash down the platform pushing my suitcase as fast I could go to change carriages....

Bloody trains.
