There’s Always Room

Going places in Tokyo was largely dependent on her renowned train network. I experienced firsthand the famous squeeze of peak hour – when I thought they couldn’t possibly pack another commuter into the already stuffed train, they did so with another ten. I termed this “sardine can commute” and if claustrophobia isn’t a concern, it does come with its advantage – I needn’t hold on to any railing, everyone was leaning on to each other for support. I was glad I “squeezed” every drop out of this experience and I certified myself a true Tokyo visitor now.
