"Shibuya to Hiyoshi on the Tokyu Line at Night- 1991"

Back in 1991, I carried a video camera with me nearly all the time. This video is of a nighttime trip I took from Shibuya to Hiyoshi on the Tokyu Line

It's only ("only?" Hmmm...) been a little over 17 years, but things feel quite different on the trains these days. No wonder, when you stop and realize that it's a different generation of young people on them - and the young people in this 1991 video are now middle-aged....

The sights and sounds of the trip will likely be familiar to anyone who used that line around that time (October 1991). Several of the windows were also open, which is quite rare now. People seem to like(?!) riding around in sealed boxes now - no mater how nice the weather is outside.
