Packed train

Filed under: seikatsu — myyearinjapan @ 10:46 pm

Yesterday, when I got to the train station on my way to school, I saw huge crowds of people waiting for the train on the platform. Apparently there was an accident somewhere on the line, but I don’t know what kind of accident. Anyway, trains were coming every 7 or 8 minutes instead of every 2 minutes. Usually, while one train leaves the station, the lights go off to say another train is arriving soon. I’d never seen the trains as packed as they were this morning. So many people were stuffing themselves into the train.

People brace themselves to avoid falling out of the rather overstuffed train

the doors to that train somehow manage to close without closing on anyone

The train going the other way, leaving the city. So empty, you could even get a seat...
