Namiki-chuo Station platform

The Yokohama New Transit Seaside Line is a people mover in Yokohama’s Kanazawa Ward. It differs from traditional railways in a couple ways.  It doesn’t run on rails, it runs on a guideway with rubber tires.  Also, it has no driver.  It’s completely automated.

Yesterday, we went to Costco, which is near Namiki-chuo Station.  I took this picture on the platform, which is completely enclosed.

It’s mid-afternoon, so no big crowds yet.
