In Tokyo, you’ll never escape their complex train lines, except if you have ample time to wait for buses or hire a taxi with expensive fare rates. In Tokyo alone, there are 503 stations across its 23 wards. Among these stations, Shinjuku Station is the busiest, serving 3.64 million passengers per day, and currently has 200 exits.
Speaking of trains, Japan now holds the fastest maglev bullet train in the world, traveling insanely fast, at a maximum speed of 603 kph (374 mph), outdoing Shanghai maglev’s 431 kph (288 mph). But you can’t ride on it yet; it’s still a prototype model of Japan Railways, which will be fully operational on 2027.
