She arrives at Tokyo Station Lobby where her class will meet up for their school field trip to Kyōto and follows two unnamed students. At the gathering a nervous, Tomoko inteprets the fact that many of the students have suitcases with rollers as yet another attempt to isolate her.
On the train, Tomoko is impressed by the way Ogino takes charge and inwardly mocks the encouragement Ogino has given her. She sits next to Asuka Katō and Okada but never talks to them. After concentrating on her phone, she notices that they have left. She gets up to use the restroom and returns to find the unnamed students Former Class Representative, Mike, Long Black-Haired Girl, and Blond Girl with Glasses sitting in her set of seats. Tomoko imagines sheepishly makes it to her seat and avoids any other interaction with the girls, including when they take a "selfie" picture of themselves. Instead, she returns to standing near the bathrooms. Kotomi spots her, but the conversation between the two is awkward. Since Yū asked them for pictures from their trip, Kotomi asks to take a "selfie" with Tomoko. Afterwards, Tomoko sheepishly asks to take one also.
After that, Tomoko finds an open seat and pretends to sleep until the train arrives at its stop.
