    Default An excellent Japanese cab-view video - Fuzisawa to Kamakura.

    In 4K60fps, an excellent video.
    Clearly recorded in the morning....all the uniformed school-kids on the platforms....and an intimate view of life along this light railway route.

    Great stuff!




    Here's the Google Maps link to the location...........

    You're welcome, lads.

    One minor correction to my description....it wasn't in the morning but afternoon; one of the platforms further along the route has a clock reading 4:40 so the school-day must have been over.

    Space is clearly at a premium in Japan.....the fact that there is almost no clearance between the buildings and the line. Passengers can quite literally see right into the rooms.....curtains would definitely be required for privacy.

    The lineside is very clean and neat. No litter or refuse to be seen. Same for the streets.

    I enjoyed it as well, thanks.
    There a similar sections along the Chicago Elevated, where you are spit distance from buildings. I vividly remember as a child thinking that I could almost reach out the trains window and grab a glass of water from someone's kitchen we were so close.
