This picture was taken in Tatsumi Station.
Tatsumi is written 辰巳 in Chinese character .
Tatsu(辰) is meaning Dragon and Mi(巳) is meaning Snake .
In Earthly Branches or Chinese astrology ,
2012 is the year of the Dragon(Tatsu) year , and 2013 is the year of the Snake(Mi) .
So, the plate of Station-name is decorated , inserting an arrow between 辰(Tatsu) and 巳(Mi) .
It is a good idea , isn’t it ?
I WISH YOU A HAPPY NEW YEAR !
