Rush hours are a nightmare
Rush hour is terrible in any country. There’s nothing worse than sitting in your car for hours and hours just to make it late to work. Sure, you can leave earlier, but that involves waking up and getting ready earlier. Time can be hard to manage sometimes.
Anyway, rush hour in Japan takes it to a whole other level. It’s not just the roads that are jam-packed with people, and we’re more than used to seeing subways packed with morning commuters. However, the sidewalks are also full, and you’ll have to bump and push your way past the fast-walking people who spend their entire lives dealing with pedestrian traffic jams.
