On Time With Yamanote Line Train Clock

Train Clock

In Japan the trains run like clockwork, they say 7:15am and they mean it. The only time I thought the train was late, it was due to an earthquake so it had an excuse. But the other times, I would miss it due to being slow to leave my apartment. I know I could of kept a better eye out on the time, but why do that when there is a clock that does it for you.

JR (Japan Railways) is selling WiFi clocks that update on where your train is on the Yamanote Line in Tokyo. You can figure out just how long till it arrives and realize to yourself, “Oh shit, it is at Shibuya. I better run.” Also I have a strange fascination with the Japanese train system. From actually enjoying the Densha De GO! line of games to almost humping a Hikari Railstar Shinkansen in Okayama, there is something sexy about a long, thick tube…. OF STEEL DAMN IT!!

“YOOOO!!”
