lol. To be sure in Asia, but this is a very Asiatic row of houses. They Japanese longed for West European and North American lives and close to our lives of late.

Excellent photos. I also love the urban one with the three metro trains (I won't bother quoting it again!)

A large handful of the non-Shinkansen/non-bullet-train pics are not JR Trains, actually, but nice pics.

The popular pic with the 3 trains is taken from Ochanomizu station, one stop west of the popular electronic town of Akihabara. The pic shows the Marunouchi Subway Line, one of only 3 subways in Kantou that use third-rail technology, Tokyo's 2nd subway ever, built with the help of the British. The Orange train is among the most heavily used of all lines in greater Tokyo, the Chuo Rapid (it's headed for Kanda and Tokyo Stations in the pic). The Yellow one is the Chuo/Sobu Local, heading to Akihabara. I happen to work close to this area, it's a cool area (was even thinking about looking for an apartment there at one point).

Well, you first mention only the JR companies, so some people might assume that those pictures are all from JR lines. TRZ was just clarifying that some of them are from non-JR railways.

This makes Amtrak look like a bicycle.

These JR trains are absolutely beautiful.
