While I do appreciate the sheer variety of trains in Japan, only the Shinkansens look good to me. The non-high speed trains tend to have a very industrial look mismatched with a very modern front/rear face.

On the back wall - is that a painting, or do you really go all the way up there? It looks a little off , kinda fuzzy. If it's real, that must be one deep station!

Nope, it's real, I've personally made the climb. The station is not deep, but tall. This is not a subway station (although the subway does of course stop underneath the station, but that's unrelated to the photo). It serves as a Kintetsu Railway terminus, a major station for all trains in the area on JR West routes, and is a station on the Nozomi Toukaidou Shinkansen. You cross two large trackspans in the stations upper levels, one for JR and one for Kintetsu. The Shinkansen is located higher up and I forget if there is an overpass to look down on it or not (I haven't personally done that one).

YELLOW SHINKANSEN: If I remember right, that isn't a passenger train, but a maintenance model.

I must find one of those vending machines or souvenir shops next time I'm in Japan, which will probably be August.

You live near Musashi Kosugi Vapour? I hear they're making a new station for the Yokosuka line there. That place is gonna be booming in a few years.
