Yamanote Line - FULL LOOP!

It’s no secret I’m a real Densha Otaku, so today when I had a bit of free time on my hands, I rode the Yamanote line in it’s entirety, recording a timelapse of the whole thing.

The Yamanote line is one of Tokyo’s busiest and most important lines. A loop line consisting of 29 stations(each with it’s own unique jingle which plays as a train is due to depart), it connects most of Tokyo’s main districts together, serving nearly 4 million people every day!

My video below starts and ends in Akihabara, riding the line around clockwise. A full loop on the Yamanote Line takes just over an hour, don’t worry – this video is only about 90 seconds! Pop it into HD, go fullscreen and enjoy :)
