2012 Picture of the Week (48/52) – Convenient

Japan is well known for its efficient and convenient train system.  Anywhere you are, you’re likely to be able to take a train.  In Metropolitan Tokyo, there are 882 train stations, 121 lines, and 40 million passengers per day.  Shinjuku Station is the world’s busiest station with 3.64 million passengers per day.  It’s amazing how well it works, though it is expected that there can be delays from time to time.  This picture is the ticket gates of Futamatagawa Station in Yokohama on the Sotetsu Line.  It has around 81,000 passengers per day.
