Oversleep and miss your stop on this train and you’ll be stranded in the middle of nowhere, which might just be the start of a beautiful adventure. One of Japan’s favorite places to catch a few extra Zs is in the train, since if you can grab a seat, the soft swaying and rhythmical sounds…This is the absolute worst train to fall asleep on in Tokyo…or wait, maybe it’s the best?【Pics】 — SoraNews24 -Japan News-
Let me just add, this is the most inconvenient, unlikely trip anyone coudl make. Staying up all night Kawagukicho, without a place to stay, and sleep, hardly any businesses open is a little frightening. But if you’re healthy and willing to walk and carry a flashlight, you can wile away the hours waiting for the first train back to Tokyo at 5AM. It reminds me a bit of taking the Staten Island ferry (a much shorter, safer and taxing trip) in order to see Manhattan at it’s best. Shrinking on the trip out, and growing on the trip in. It’s also fun to see the area around the ferry terminal and visit extreme endpoints of Manhattan. In this case, it’s extreme endpoints of the Chuo line, where it lands smack dab at the foot of Mt. Fuji. That almost makes it seem worthwhile.
