Shibuya Station, Toyoko Line

Shibuya Terminal on Toyoko Line
March 14, 2013
It's amazing..... the technology of Japanese railroads, this can be exported to overseas.

They change station overnight...... I took this photo on March 14.  Last night, meaning March 15, they changed and moved this station to the basement...... I have to go check and see how they look now.

Toyoko Line is now connected with Shin Fukutoshin Line.... meaning people living on Toyoko line can go onto Shin Fukutoshin Line with ease.....this connection makes it easy for people to visit Shinjuku , Ikebukuro area.....


The amazing part is Japanese railroads do not close the station for these kind of big change.  They prepare new station and connection and then overnight, they open the new station... just like " Ta-Dah!".

Next weekend is my area...... not a new connection, but Shimokitazawa station will be moved to the basement, so as next stations....Higashi Kitazawa and Shin Daita.

This will make Odakyu Line of this area quadruple track and railroad crossings will be gone.... no more waiting ... no more accidents.
