train travel & wonderful chimes

The Japanese train system is as wonderful as it is extensive. And punctual. And clean, quiet, calm. Another thing to love: the hilariously long and elaborate chimes! I loved standing in the train, completely packed but still silent, and then hearing these little ditties at every stop. I strongly recommend taking a listen to this clip of Japanese train chimes. Give it a little while; it's worth it.
