kansaikansou:

Since Tama became the stationmaster, the Kishigawa line has become a big tourist destination. One of the trains has been decked out with calico decor. There are cat shaped lights, Tama patterned curtains, and, just in case you get bored in the 20 minutes it takes to get from one end of the line to the other, book cases filled with cat themed books and manga. While I only got the chance to ride the more popular Tama train, there are also two other “strawberry” and “toy” themed trains. But I mean… they’re not cat-shaped, so how do you compete with that?

What’s the difference between は and が?
