A nice lady went out of the way to guide me to this Metro Museum

I got off at the Kasai suburban station to get to the Tokyo Metro Museum, and while an Indian doner kebab assistant had no idea what I was talking about, a nice Japanese lady riding a bicycle went out of her way to guide me to this Metro Museum. The museum was actually just across the street from the station but she crossed the street with me and walked along the museum side entrance and rode away only after I got safely to the main entrance. That was so sweet of her! The Tokyo Subway Museum in Kasai in eastern Tokyo where I am in now features a number of historic Tokyo subway cars, video displays, poster exhibitions, model train layouts, and hands-on simulation games. Visitors enter the museum through a subway ticket gate leading to a section on Tokyo's first underground line between Ueno and Asakusa (now part of today's Ginza-Line) which opened in 1927. This is that subway ticket gate entrance. The entry tickets are bought at a counter separately and are checked by a friendly guard, so you simply walk through these gates, there is no tapping of the tickets involved here.
