…So two interesting things happened today while sitting on 9 hours of train rides from Tokyo to Sapporo (even though it sounds like hell i recommend to try it at least once since the scenery is absolute majestic especially to see the snow covered landscape as the train goes through the farmlands as well as the ocean scape during sunset). First was that I was in a reserved train carriage by myself when the train attendant who was pushing the cart with food and drinks came by. She gave her spiel every single time she entered the carriage with just me in it which was kind of awkward but I guess that is part of her job. The second was just using a 10,000 yen bill to buy something worth significantly less and they didn’t have enough change at the time so I had to wait for them to get some more.
