Yesterday, I had the pleasure? of experiencing a real Tokyo rush hour. It was so surreal, I was giggling the whole way through. When the train arrived at the platform it looked pretty full already so when I stepped in, I stood near the door thinking that there`s no way anyone else could fit. But nooo, this is Japan we`re talking about. A stampede of Japanese salarymen, OLs (office ladies) and high school students forced their way into the train, which became full to the point that my feet weren`t touching the floor – seriously. I think I saw a train pusher (a guy who gets paid to stuff/pack/push people into a train car), but I couldn`t see too well because of the swarm of people. Either way, someone was definitely pushing. It became especially funny when the train driver made sudden turns; the train would sway periously from side to side and everybody would basically fall on top of each other. It was good fun, sort of like a roller coaster ride. I definitely recommend you try it.
