Yes, it’s still popular, especially with older folks. The mask? Still popular with all Japanese.

I don't usually take photos on the train, in the streets seems more interesting and fun (not that the trains aren't interesting!) Sometimes I wish I had brought the camera when a packed train is at the station, everyone squished in like hapless canned fish. Looks a bit like an overcrowded aquarium.


I don't often either, simply because I am often still half asleep or just want to zone out and read or something else. But occasionally the mood hits me. The biggest reason taking photos in the train might be more interesting is I'm not very good at hiding what I'm doing, so whenever I do street photography all I get are photos of angry looking people staring at me. On the train it's easier to be a little more covert—or, more likely, people are more distracted or simply aren't paying attention and don't notice the camera aimed right at them.
