Yamanote Line (山手線)

The Yamanote Line is a train like run by JR Higashi (east) Nihon (JR stands for Japan Rail, Nihon is the Japanese word for JApan) and is probably the most used line in the city, but I dont know any numbers. It is a circle with the large stops included: Ikebukuro, Shinjuku, Shibuya, Shinagawa, Tokyo, and Ueno. I might be able to name all 30 some odd stations if I thought about for a while, but I dont really want to! It is the Tokyo's loop line, and one loop takes 60 minutes. So, what do you do on loop lines? You sit down in the same sit and ride it round and round in circles! When my time is up at the net cafe, I will get on and ride it several times and finally get some time to read with out feeling really lonely by reading at home. I wanted to talk with some people at JR headquarters about making a movie on the train, which is just having a camera pointed at the same spot for one entire loop, but then I remembered that I dont have a video camera. pretty cool idea though?

I have Natsume Soseki's Kokoro in both English and Japanese to read today.

What would a movie camera cost,? and would you have other uses for one? If so I would gladly finance one but don't know how to get $$ to you. Doubtless your folks will know. Was the Tolstoy piece you put on yr blog its final version, or will you be able to incorporate some of the suggestions you received into a revised version?
Sounds like you're back to real school again. Not much bike action, I gather. I'm going to check out Morris and will keep you posted. Love as always from grandpa
