The Thin Orange Door

Random door with graffiti in the maze like bowels of the Sannomiya Hankyū Station in Kōbe. The rail system in Japan is a somewhat messy weave of different privately run & owned train companies. Certain train lines have tracks & stations that provide nearly overlapping service while other destinations can only be served by certain companies. Major stations such as Sannomiya have multiple companies, Hanshin Electric Railway, Hankyu Railway, Kōbe Municipal Subway and Kōbe New Transit, (nearly) under one roof. All train companies also have a co-owned department store, so depending on what line you are ridding you will know what stores to expect at major stations.
