  • Child-Friendly Public Transport

    Environment, Industrial Design


    Always curious about the interior designs of public transport, Japan's "child-friendly public transport" certainly woke me up this morning.

    Designed by freelance designer Eiji Mitooka; the Omoden ("Toy Train", in English) and the "Ichigo Ec" ("Strawberry Train") run on the 14.3km Kishigawa Line and contain hundreds of toys, TV screens showing cartoons, immaculately clean wooden flooring / play spaces and cots for younger children.
