Looking ahead/Смотря вперед

One of the means of transportation in and out of Narita Airport, Keisei Skyliner train offers a service that lets passengers see what the train operator sees.

Один из поездов, соединяющих аэропорт Нарита  с Токио и его окрестностями, Keisei Skyliner, показывает пассажирам вид из кабины машиниста.

Do your best, Japan, some more!/Давай еще, Япония!

I already wrote about the popular in Japan slogan wishing the country all the best, and here are some more pictures.

Я уже писал ранее про популярный в Японии призыв, желающий стране процветания. Еще нашлись фотографии.

A bus in Aomori prefecture. The white label under the window wishes Japan all the best.

Автобус в префектуре Аомори. Белая наклейка справа под задним стеклом желает Японии успехов.


 A sign in one of the offices wishes all the best to the northeastern Japan.

Плакат в одном из учреждений желает северо-востоку Японии всего хорошего.


The slogan on a bag wishes the same thing.

То же самое -- на пакете.


Here is the same wish on a train schedule inside a local train. Schedule and prices are on the left screen and the wish is on the right.

А вот то же самое на расписании движения в пригородном поезде. Слева -- расписание и цена проезда до пунктов назначения, а справа пожелание.
 
This restaurant printed a wish on its menu, right above the bottom picture. Conveniently translated into English.

Этот ресторан поместил пожелание на меню (над нижней картинкой), сразу по-английски.
 

And here is the partial view of the wish in Narita Airport. The entire thing can be seen at the end of the previous post on this subject.

А вот часть пожелания в аэропорту Нарита. Вид сверху в конце предыдущей записи на эту тему.
