Mysterious Cushion

Åsa’s comment

I love the bullet train! It’s fast, it’s convenient, and it’s a lot better for the environment than flying! It sure isn’t cheap, though… Boy, was I touched to see those cushions at the station! They don’t have them at all stations, of course, but I’m sure the people who work there knew people would appreciate it!
