It is a rainy day in Tokyo today. I became to realize that when it rains, the train gets really crowded. Just like the highways in LA. Not sure why.
When a train is crowded during rush hour in Tokyo, it means some serious business.
It is something I have realized a long time ago, but it probably feels like being in a chicken cage. It is not fun.
This environment should be debated as a traffic safety issue. Average occupancy rate of the train during rush hour in Tokyo is said to be 171%.
That is almost double the allowed occupancy!! Very dangerous!! Imagine another person sitting with you on a chair…
