The power of sliding doors

It may be dramatic, but it's not unusual. Here, a salary man has become wedged between the closing doors of a packed subway train. With this a frequent occurrance at this time of day, there are about 20 white-gloved staff lining the platform, ready to either push people on, or, as in this case, wrestle the doors back in order to release whoever or whatever is unfortuate enough to be caught in the jaws of their mighty pneaumatic grip.

(I waited for the next train!)

Bear in mind it's only some rush-hour trains that are like this!

Amazing trip you're planning! If you'd like to meet up when you get to Japan do let me know :-)
