February 26, 2006 – Rain delay

Today I worked at Fuji school to cover a shift swap. I was raining during the day, and absolutely pouring when I tried to leave.

The rain was so hard that my train home was delayed 30 minutes. Fuji serves just under 9000 passengers a day. Even with that relatively small number the platforms were absolutely packed. I can’t even imagine what a rain delays would do for a bigger station! Stupid rain.

There were some train stations that I used regularly in my time in Japan. Fuji was the least busy of my regular stations. Numazu averages around 22,000 passengers a day, Kawasaki was about 164,000, and Shinjuku is somewhere near between 2-3 million daily.

No, that wasn’t a typo. Shinjuku station is bonkers.
