  • Do you know about Japan’s famous crowded trains?
    During peak commuting hours in major metropolises such as Tokyo and Osaka, passengers, often with the help of station staff, cram themselves into trains as they head off to work or school.
    The congestion is at its worst between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. , so be careful when making travel plans!
