It is quite amazing the order amongst people waiting for the metro in Nagoya, Japan. Waiting in orderly queues and when the train arrives everybody steps aside and let everybody exit the train before entering. The yellow marks notes the place where the door will be when the train has stopped. In some places I also saw white lines on the floor that marked the queue. Not the wild west of Swedish metros and train stations where everybody tries to enter the train before the people leaving the train has really left the train. I was very impressed.
Just now it is much more chaos when going aboard the local bus in Malmö, Sweden, where I live as they have closed the front door which was the entrance to the bus before to protect the bus driver so people have to board and and get off the bus on the other doors which has led to more crowding when boarding and getting off. So I wish for the discipline of these folks queuing to board the train.
A treasured memory from one of my journeys to visit my son whom lived in Japan at the time. The pictures is taken at the temple area Tenryū-ji in Kyoto and has been published on one of my other blogs. Tenryū-ji is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

I was guided on a memorable trip to Korankei valley in eastern Japan in the autumn of 2013. The valley is famous for its beautiful colors during the autumn. The center and origin of the beautiful seasonal colors is the existence of a zen temple built in 1427. The monks planted trees around the temple with beautiful seasonal colors. There are also market stalls in the autumn by the bridge and the trees and the river are illuminated in the evening. We were there in the beginning of November and the colors were not at their maximum yet but it was still a wonderful place to visit. This picture is taken from the bridge over the river Tomoe.
Walking from the station in Ogaki, Japan I saw a pink bus and snapped a picture. The picture is taken in 2013 and has been published on one of my other blogs, From My Horizon.
