To say that Tokyo is teeming with greenery and open space would be a lie, yet there are still plenty of concrete-free comfort zones. Ok, so many of them aren’t especially beautiful, plus they have to be shared by an awful lot of people, but even a packed out and pocket-sized park has to be better than this lousy lunch location.
in osaka we can only dream of gorgeous open spaces like that
Why not sit by the lake in the background? It’s quite near their current location but is much more attractive. Or is it prohibited? There seems to be a lot of greenery…

No, Larm, it would be far too hot sitting by the lake; they need the shade of the train tracks to survive. It’s hot, hot, hot.
They could bring a “beach” umbrella or two
What kind of people would fancy having lunch in this location, I wonder?

…Yakuza in training

I adore Japan as well as Tokyo and would be happy to have lunch or dinner anywhere in there. By the way, there are absolutely glorious places in Tokyo — anywhere one goes it is not difficult to find something to make one feel welcome. It is also very difficult to have a bad meal anywhere in Japan… I miss it so!
Are just my tired eyes or they have a drum??
I think the drum is actually a cooler
Where im from its fairly green, and most folk have a yard, suffice to say i wonder what drives folk to picnic under a train bridge :S
Ohwell, i guess i’ll find out when i visit japan soon…
