So I've mentioned already that Heather and Tim live by one of the busiest train stations ever. One of the side-effects of this is that they also live by one of the busiest intersections ever. The arrangement for this intersection is pretty impressive. They have lights, of course, for all the cars and the cars follow a normal pattern. But then the cars all get a red light and the automotive traffic comes to a complete stop. Then all the people get to walk. This winds up being hundreds of people walking from all directions and the center of the intersection just becomes a sea of people.
It's even more impressive at night because of the lights that are reminiscent of Times Square.
Day 6: Saturday
Heather and I took an hour long train ride out to Kamakura.
