It's the Beijing Olympic station. Near the stadium.

That's correct ... the South Forest station just north of the Olympic Green.

This one should be pretty easy. Huge hint in it.



--photo was taken on a disgustingly hot summer day too. The temperature and humidity in the station was obscene.

I think it's Flinders Street in Melbourne.

Definitely consider blurring the "Metro" Melbourne logo as that is a dead giveaway (as well as the old Comeng train)

Hah, yeah you're right. It's platform 12/13 - the nastiest ones and my platform is the one on the left.

I couldn't be bothered changing the url so I just linked straight from a FB photo I took ages ago.

From the very same day that photo was taken...

Just a little toasty then. What gets me is the temperature variation in Melbourne according to your phone - that is quite extreme over 5 days! It drops 14 degrees as your average high in just two days.

This is Japan - for sure, but it doesnt look like metro, more like suburban rail [which in Japan works like a metro ]
Maybe Chuo or Yamanote Line in Tokyo?

It is the chuo line, congrats! I even removed nearly every character possible.

You're also right, I stretched the definition of metro, but hey, it's Tokyo - nearly everything acts like a "metro" there.

Now, station. Hint: it is one of the most desirable areas in Tokyo to live according to the Japanese.

True, that is a bit of a giveaway isn't it?

When I read Chuo line and and very desirable area, I think of Kichijoji first and I see a big departement store, it is probably the departement store over Keio Inokashira line station.

No, both answers are very far of the location.

It is called "metro" and it uses rolling stocks commonly used in metro networks but it doesn't have any underground station.
