No big inconvenience on the weekend. 1 of  540,000 yet still feels like 865,000 people “in prepandemic conditions” on a busy workday.

@Snow: We gave you the thumbs up. We rarely click on those but feel for you dealing with those huge numbers of commuters. Is it really that rough? Are people quiet and polite?

I am impressed. This guy is dealing with the situation and trying to better himself. Not staying home with mother unemployed. May the trains run for him.

@Yrall. No, it's not closed until further notice. Back up and running Monday Morning. Amazing engineering in a little over 48 hours.

Also, the Oedo line is not a perfect loop as as such and branches out west a little. Most here don't need to Google it Yrall as we actually live here.

THIS is the kind of well-choreographed, expeditious & efficient work at much-need reparations to infrastructure the rest of the world envisions as “JAPAN!”. - (Wish their response to other events in the recent years had been handled in the same manner.) - The World is Watching, Japan.

I'm glad I no longer take the train to work.
