Today I saw an air conditioner on the track-side platform at Namba train station. I went back to Shin-Imamiya by train from Namba station. I took the Nankai line semi-express train.
I was quite surprised to see a big air conditioner there. I mean, it was perfect because I was after a few hours of walking, so I needed that. The train themselves are air-conditioned. However, sometimes people wait a lot in line after being under the sun and they sweat. This is a great way to freshen up a bit before entering the train.
Soon we won’t need it. The weather is getting better by the day here in Osaka, Japan. The day that I arrived was very humid. But now, only around a week later, the weather feels nice. It’s still hot outside, but not too much. The humidity dropped to around 55%. I don’t feel sweaty anymore when I walk a lot in the street.
At the first few days, I was sweating by just being outside for a few minutes. Considering that I am carrying a bag and a camera, it wasn’t easy.
This air conditioner does make it better for me. I wish there was air conditioning like that on the track-side at every train station.
Well, just sharing this. I’ve never seen an air conditioner on a platform in a train station.
