Waiting for the train
Waiting for the train
Sunday, 1 May 2011 The kindness of strangers. So many strangers I have met on this journey... with some of them, conversations started, and with some they continued some more. And with many, unexpected kindnesses arose. One lady in the train, who noticed me buying a drink of green tea and some green tea ice cream from the trolley, asked me the question to which there was only one answer : “Do you like green tea?” And then, she rummaged in her bag and brought out one of a set of special packets of tea leaves, which she presented to me, Japanese style with both hands outstretched and a slight bow : “Please enjoy this”. I definitely shall! As soon as I arrived with my Osaka friends, their neighbour (who had been with us on an outing during a previous visit) turned up at the door to greet me. She had brought six little doll-bookmarks folded in origami paper, and I was to have all six of them, to keep and to give away. They had been made by a friend of hers in Iwate Ken, one of the tsunami affected areas -- I shall remember her and her home place whenever using the mark. On a local train in Tokyo, I got chatting with three rather jolly elderly ladies, clutching a pink rose each. I told them how lovely they looked, and was immediately given all three! They were a florist’s advertisement for Mother’s Day next week, and the ladies had been given them only a few minutes earlier! These flowers survived my rather full day in Tokyo and more days in Osaka on my friends’ dining table. And then, there were the other acts of kindness... A young couple, finding me with my heavy suitcase trying to work out the railway fare to my friends’ place, came to ask me where I wanted to go and found it for me on the long list of railway stations, together with the fare. And the lady who saw me wandering lost up the aisle of the shinkansen after a visit to the WC, gave me a big smile and pointed out my seat to me. And the other lady who saw me looking for a window seat on the train this morning and moved over so that I could have hers. And the kind people who came over to talk to me when they found me sitting alone on a riverbank, in a train or on a bench. My Japanese is too basic to converse meaningfully with anyone who does not make a much appreciated effort to speak slowly and use simple vocabulary -- indeed sometimes I wonder whether I have just surprised someone by saying “Oh, how very nice” after they told me a sad story... Each of these conversations have been a pleasure in their own right, a friendly connection with a friendly stranger. No Japanese person would find any of this worth writing about. Such kindness is normal here. As a visitor who comes but once a year, I still find it amazing!
