"Late Night Burbs, Tachikawa Station, and Yurakucho"

Starting with a view of a late-night, nearly empty station out in suburbia, and then jumping to another day in Tachikawa, making my way through a crowd of people exiting the station while I'm entering it.  After that, a view of the long escalator at Tokyo Station, and platform views at Yurakucho Station.

"Late Night Nearly Empty Burbs Station" (100409-2320)

Late night at a nearly empty station out in a Tokyo suburb - conditions are not always crowded everywhere, all the time!

"Tachikawa Station Ticket Gates - April 28th, 2010" (100428-1036)

Walking through a crowd exiting one of the ticket gates at Tachikawa Station, and then going through the gates myself and heading for the Chuo Line.

"Tokyo Station Long Escalator Decent" (100428-1117)

Walking from the high elevated Chuo Line platform down to the under-tracks transfer area - walking down the long escalator to get there.

"Tokyo Station - Waiting for Next Yamanote Train" (100428-1120)

Waiting for the next Yamanote Line train at Tokyo Station.

The reason I didn't take the Keihin-Tohoku Line train that came, was because at this time of day (11:20 a.m.), the Keihin-Tohoku Line doesn't stop at Yurakucho, which was my destination.

"Yurakucho Izakaya Night" (100428-1957)

Now that spring is completely here (and it's beginning to get hot even), the cold windy evenings of rushing for home are past (for now) and people are wandering around a bit more in typical Tokyo evening fashion.

"Keihin-Tohoku Train Arriving at Yurakucho Station" (100428-2205)

Watching a Keihin-Tohoku Line train arrive at Yurakucho Station.  (During the day, the Keihin-Tohoku Line trains don't stop here, but at this time of night, they do.)
