Just kind of stand near the door and wait for a push.

    Why not use a tazer to speed it up?

    I visited Tokyo in April and fortunately we never experienced that! It was a bit of a thrill to be on the trains in the morning with our bright blue and red coloured rain gear among a sea of all black and white suited salarymen.

    The trains were actually amazing and we found it very easy to get around. There were several digital maps showing your location and the upcoming stops along with pleasant sounds as the doors opened and closed.

    However we did see updated data where delays were caused due to “crowding.”

  6. natalie,

    i never knew and i was the type of person who could have panic attacks until I lived in Japan. My first attack was when I was compressed inside a train during a stupid festival.

  7. dancing caveman,

    been there, done that, and it’s a bit of fun! :D it is easy for the ladies to get groped though, hence that is why they have women’s only carriages during the rush hours.

    I was kind of expecting a drop kick at some point.

    Man, and I get pissed when I have to SHARE a seat. I guess Chicago’s doing pretty well then!
