sleepless 眠らぬ街


At New York Subway 23rd Station

Tokyo is a busy city but its train system shuts down after midnight, then wakes up around 5 am. If you miss the last train, you keep drinking until next morning.

New York subway system operates 24 hours. It may not be as clean nor as reliable as Tokyo system but it reflects the character of true sleepless city.

Shinjuku 3 chome subway station between Isetan and Takashimaya.

Tokyo Subway #13 was under the construction while we lived in Tokyo. It is now complete, up and running, and called “Tokyo Fukutoshin Sen” or Tokyo Secondary Capital Line. This new subway line connects Ikebukuro and Shibuya through Shinjuku, providing an alternate path on the west side of Tokyo parallel to the JR Yamanote line.

It is amazing to see Tokyo continues to reinvent itself, rebuild, and improve especially extending Shinjuku station while operating the station where 800,000 people travel though everyday.
