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.
Here’s a picture I took last night before my apartment troubles happened. I was waiting at Yokohama Station for the Tokaido Line train, and it turned out that it was delayed a few minutes. The Tokaido Line is usually crowded, but with a delay, there were so many people on the train, it was like getting stuffed into a sardine can. This picture was taken on the platform. I think this is what many people imagine Japanese train stations to be like.
