Shin-Osaka Station

 Around seven in the evening, I was on the Shinkansen bullet train platform in Shin-Osaka Station to help a foreign traveler to transfer to another super express train for Kansai International Airport.

"Shin" means "new" in Japanese and Shin-Osaka station was made for Shinkansen that started its operation in 1964.
This station is always crowded with travelers and business people. Especially around this time, traveling businessmen rush onto a train to go back to their hometown. Many people buy something to eat such as box lunch and snacks as well as a canned beer.Short  Relaxing time.
The front face of the popular bullet train really resembles "platypus."
Cool but a little comical to me.
