For example I discovered today that the Yamanote line, the train line we were taking everyday, is the busiest train line in the world.

The houses on the street were traditionally Japanese and interesting to look at. It was quite a bit steeper than we expected but luckily, in Japan everywhere (even on an off the beaten track residential street like this) there are vending machine, so we were able to pick up some more water as we had ...
