Heading to Japan soon to tour up and down the island. Heard mostly very positive things about Japan's efficient, yet very complex and intricate rail and subway systems and to tell you the truth, I'm a little nervous about mastering it but will need to rely on it to get to certain destinations.
If you've been to multiple cities in Japan and have any tips to offer, feel free to share them!! I'd really appreciate it. For now, I have maps and itineraries printed out, regional and local connections written down, and routes and alternate routes charted out. Trying my best to be prepared but who knows if that's going to help?!
I will definitely check-in online from Japan to share any funny or interesting anecdotes on BARTMusings.com! Talk to you again soon!
Would you mind taking some photos and then posting them? We (cause I do often - everyday) always compare our bare bones system to other more refined ones and it would be great to see the differences.
will definitely try to do that!
Doesn't Japan have those little guys wearing white gloves whose job it is to push everyone onto the train when it arrives? Enter from one side, exit on the other?
yep, they certainly do that here...uniformed agents who push you into the trains during rush hours. so far, i've only experienced weekend and national holiday subway time and it has not been THAT crowded. the way the trains are configured here give you PLENTY of standing room, but then again, it's not rush hour on work days just yet....that's tomorrow!! more to come soon...
