Images of trains full of people can often be seen on the internet. They show a part of everyday life for those living in the city. In fact, Tokyo’s Shinjuku Station serves more passengers in a single day than any other train station in the world. Trains are most crowded during the morning rush hour between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. and between 5:00 and 7:00 p.m. when people are getting off work. The last few trains of the evening, which usually depart shortly before midnight, are also often packed to the limit.

在网路上经常可以看见载满人的火车照片。这些照片展示了该市居民日常生活的一部分。事实上,东京新宿车站一天的乘客人数比世界上任何其他火车站都还要多。火车在早上八点至九点的上午尖峰时刻以及傍晚五点至七点人们下班的期间最为拥挤。晚上的最后几班火车通常在午夜之前发车,这几班车也经常拥挤到极限。
