I worship the Cart Lady

One of several reasons why traveling by train is such a pleasure in this country...

Coffee, beer, water and assorted snacks, for sale at your seat!

The beer is cold, the snacks salty or sweet. I think you can get boxed lunches as well. This service was especially appreciated a few weeks ago, when I had to rush through many corridors and up and down endless escalators on a long-haul underground transfer deep inside Tokyo Station -- with two kids, two rolly suitcases and no husband in tow -- to catch the Wakashio Ltd. to Onjuku. Within minutes after collapsing into our seats, the lady with the cart entered our car. Best Asahi "Dry" ever.
