It was cloudy.

In the morning there was a passenger accident and the Keikyu line was delayed. When I changed to the Yamanote line, there were many announcements about the delay for JR lines on the monitors above the doors. The reasons of delay were different depends on the lines. The display were both Japanese and English.
First it was appeared in Japanese and then it was translated into English.
I was wondering how to express the situation of a bird crash accident. Then it said "animal collision." Birds are indeed one of the animals, but I felt it did not express the precise situation.
I wonder what animal foreigners would imagine.


  1. That's hilarious. I would have imagined a rat on the train tracks
