The phone? Mid conversation or awaiting a wake up alarm ?

If it was for a wake up alarm, I suspect he slept through it!

Isolate the guy and he could be at home. Lying down comfortable. Fast asleep. Phone by his side. But…….

Yeah, despite the people, noise and the cold hard surface, he really does look at home, doesn’t he?

Another fine multi-layered slice of Tokyo life you have captured here in your photograph. Even a fairly rare reflective selfie 🙂
It’s the guys head I’m worried about, looks so exposed. His phone not so much. Partly because it’s Japan, and partly because Betty Boop is keeping a keen eye on it 🙂

Thanks. Yes, couldn’t avoid that one. Probably about as near to a selfie as I want to get!
It doesn’t look the safest place to sleep, does it? But with Betty Boop on hand, he seemed to be doing ok. Amazing how everyone just completely ignored him. When I stopped to take the photo, however, people sadly didn’t ignore me…

It must be the shoes!

Haha, quite possibly. My favourite footwear!

He’s all like a misplaced train commuter. ‘Limited Express (has gone?)’ for a wake up call?
Betty Boop security – awesome!

I suspect his missed train was the previous night’s last one, and then before the first ones started again, he was out cold — quite literally.

Were he here, he’d soon be minus his cellphone, and perhaps some disturbed person would try to roll him off the platform and into an oncoming train.

Yeah, of course people regularly ending up like this isn’t exactly a positive side of Japanese society, but at the same time, the fact that they can do so safely, most definitely is a positive. A huge one.

At least, this being Japan, his phone won’t be stolen 🙂

That’s so very true. Simply left in peace to sleep his evening off.
