The Insein station was the last stop of the train which I get on. The fact surprised not only me but also other local passengers. They dropped the car off and waited for the next train in each way. Unlike the circular railway in Tokyo, the train didn't come frequently. So the local people started to be lazy and relax on one of the platforms. No one seemed to hurry. The platform was wrapped by the calmness.

The round sign was hung on each platform. Although the number of the platform was shown on it, I couldn't understand what number it was because it was written in Burmese numeric characters. Anyway, it was not the matter to which platform the train came. I hung out on the platform. Some benches were placed between the signs. And a man wearing a longyi sat. He sat in a distance from other people and soaked in the loneliness.
