Traveling to Osaka on Sunday morning. We had to take a few different trains. On the main leg of our journey (took about an hour) we took two different trains with reserved seating. When we got the tickets there weren’t enough in the non-smoking cars. The guys were nice and let me have the one that was left and sat in the smoking cars, but that meant I was by myself! It caused a little bit of a flareup of anxiety because I had no idea what I was doing but they were able to come get me before each stop. And the trains are so much nicer than what I’m used to! The ride is smooth and quiet, plus the other passengers are usually fairly quiet. On the first train there was a cute kid who kept looking out the window.
