SUBWAY, TOKYO (2)

My transfer station is Ginza. Again, it seems like I flow against the commuters with more people getting off than getting on. Config: Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 50mm f/1.2.

As with much of Japan’s society, it is all about order. When you stand on a platform you will notice the little colored markers where the doors will stop and people calmly and neatly line up on either side, waiting.

As people funnel on, there is no pushing or shoving – even as it gets tight.

And it definitely gets tight. Although on this day, the conductor did not need to do one of those famous ‘pushes’.

The subways of Japan, the cleanest and most efficient in the world.
