When we returned home from Japan, we wanted a fun way to tell everyone that we got engaged and so, we decided to have a caricature drawn.
We visited Shibuya’s Caricature Japan and the guy who drew us was amazing. I’ve always wondered what I would look like as a cartoon character.
As you may or may not know, there are women-only carriages in Japan. Apparently, groping in crowded commuter trains is a big problem in Japan, hence the women-only carriages.
Platforms and train doors are marked with signs indicating boarding areas for the cars, and the days and times when the cars are women-only.
Though intended to be exclusive to women, most train operators in Japan allow male elementary school pupils, disabled persons, and their assistants to board women-only cars. It was very interesting to see.
