How to park a bus in Japan

It's a well-known fact that space in Tokyo is not something that is taken for granted. Houses the size of shoeboxes, ceilings only 4 foot off the ground - you name it, all manner of methods are used to make the most of every last square metre.

And it's no different at the headquarters of Nippon Chuo Bus Company, where, faced with the seemingly impossible task of parking 12 coaches in their courtyard, they decided to take the idea behind multi-storey car parks to a whole new level.

One just hopes that the driver of the bus at the top remembers to ask his mate in the bus at the bottom to shift his vehicle before he presses the DOWN button.
