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.
