You think the trains are crowded now? Check out how it was before companies began allowing flextime (1991): http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=5127313249780524359 Before automatic ticket gates – this one the east exit of Shinjuku Station (1990): http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-28511952765748213 By way of contrast, here is the same ticket barrier – taken about three weeks ago (note the orange-hair gate crasher): http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6725662219489500607 thx, the last two videos comparison is great! Ah..the good old days!!! Before automatic ticket gates they cut tickets by hand and just watching those guys cutting tickets and collecting the fare differences of hundreds of people at the same time was amazing.. Tokyo Trains are not as crowded as they used to be. That’s for sure. Haha, I’d like to see them all spill out when it stops. Haha oh my god! That’s insane, I hope they have good air conditioners in there 😀 WTF. Why didn’t a few of en get off?? I saw a couple of people leave like “I’m not gonna fit in there!” This happened to me too. Riding on the famous Odakyuu line… from the far Kanagawa prefecture to Shinjuku station. In the morning, for me it was one hour of only people entering the train at every stop, no one leaving. Wow, it was a kind of cultural experience… ^^ I would not repeat it though… Thanks for the video, Hector! Comments are closed.
