Breakfast on the train with David Herman shot by Akiko Hamaoka

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Usually it is not permitted to take images eating but I had to laugh when Akiko showed me this one. Honestly I am definitely not into eating on public transportation but we were in a rush to get to the atelier of Erina Matsui and it was about an hour outside of Tokyo and David and I were starving. I was gesturing to Akiko this was forbidden, but glad that she did not listen. It is a fun souvenir.
