At Tokyo Speed!
Tokyo! Arriving via night bus to the busiest train station in the world, for numbers, 2 million passengers pass through, 750,000 transfer here. That's 1/2 the population of Kansas City going through one train station not much bigger than Union Station in KC every freaking day!
And me, a midwestern/california, used to wide open spaces, 10 lane traffic jams, but never the rush of thousands of people heading for the same trains at the same time, but in dramatic order.
Tokyo is unlike any city I've ever been to, suprisingly less like New York than I though. New York is less busy, more built up, and has far less green space. Plus, the people here are much more courteous, repectful, and orderly than arrogant New Yorkers, and they speak better English! (j/k on the last part). New York has far worse traffic and less crowded trains, but Tokyo is far easier to get across, if you don't mind being a human sandwich between two Japanese businessmen. One good thing - Japanese are extremely hygenic, take multiple showers a day, and ever wear face masks when sick so as not to spread their germs. No way that would happen in NYC.
Some photos from Tokyo below. Enjoy!
Here are some photos from the fastest city on earth.
