Over 3 million people pass through the Shinjuku station in Tokyo every day, making it the busiest in the world in terms of passengers. All of those people, plus a really complex train station map really turned up the stress level. On a couple of the trains I felt that all of those 3 million were on the same train. It would be so packed that I could let go of my bag and it would stay suspended in between me and the person squeezed right up next to me.
So, needless to say, I felt like this guy more than once. When I saw this moment taking place, I had to photograph it…even if it was just for my own humor.
I am proud to say that I did tackle the Tokyo train system by myself a couple of times.
