The view from Mt Ainslie

Ian Jackson's webpage, coming to you from Canberra ACT Australia



Tokyo was an amazing experience. It is such an intense and exhilhirating place, and completely different to anywhere else I've ever been. And the trains. Let me tell you about the trains.
You see, there are the Shinkansen, but there are also the plethora of different private railway companies, as
well of course as the vast JR East network, of which the hub is the Yamanote line. And then there are the two different metro companies,
which interwork extensively onto both the JR and private lines. There are even services that go from Narita airport, on the Keisei line, onto the metro, and then onto another private company line to Haneda. Shinjuku station is the busiest, yet has no Shinkansen services at all
