What does Shinjuku Station, which boasts the world’s largest number of passengers, actually look like?

  • TOKYO
  • SHINJUKU
  • SPOT
  • In a single day, 3.26 million people board and disembark from trains at Shinjuku Station, making it the Guinness record holder.
    In the video you’re about to see, a camera onboard a passing train captures the people standing at the train platform in super slow motion.
    The piece renders the people as “living sculptures,” frozen in place. What did you think when you saw this?
