420 thousand passengers/day passed through the station.
March 15, 2013, The Ground Station was replaced to underground one
for connecting another underground line.
I tried to record the the view from the train window, using multi camera :-)
The sight from the elevated line might be not special, It's an everyday affair in Tokyo,
but it provided precious experience for me.
I loved it.
but it's cramped and known as rabbit hutch. My room is also small.
So, I ordered renovation of my room for more space and comfort.
At last I got a sufficient room for me ;-)
It's time-lapse movie of the renovation.
I think, Red Bull seems to make an effort to allow excite things
to take root in Japanese Society.
For example, Air Race is not famous in Japan,
but they are keeping to cary Air Racer every year,
and make the stripe in Japanese air at their sponsored music event.
In this year, they carried their F1,
and demonstrated at not only the event
but a pubric way for Japanese Eathquake Disaster Charity.
I surprised that GoPro HD shop-bought camera was put on F1
as the on-board camera :-)
This week is very important for Red Bull Racing between Monaco and Canada Gp,
But Buemi showed us his genuine hospitality
with highly safety conscience by his driving.
I paid a donation again, and got a can of Red Bull to pay my respect.
and I made the Animation for the comparison.

When my working time, I'm wearing my Geta,
woody belt sandal, for this ten years.
But the belt ( called Hanao ) was in rags by the daily usage.
I tryed to find "Geta Smith" to repair it.
Long time ago, more shoe shop had hte Hanao repair service.
But today, we don't have enough opportunities to wear a Kimono with Geta,
and such as shop was decreased by the changing our lifestyle.
I wish more peoples use Geta more casually.
Fortunately,there was earlier generations shoe shop in my town,
and I could order to repair it.
I can keep to wear the Geta for ten more years.
Norifumi "Norick" Abe, Former MotoGP racer was died at public road, not in a circuit.
A motorcycle race is not popular in Japan.
Japanese racers is famous in Europe more than in Japan,
And most of Japanese don't know Japanese Racers compete for
the championship in MotoGP,
250cc and 125cc class World Championship.
But Norick made an effort to proceeded the poularity
between his circuit actibity time.
but I couldn't believe that. I believed He'd back to MotoGP again.

Lot of the peoples enjoyed the dance freely!
It's very important that a company make a space for such as minor cultures.
If you want to keep a skateboarding in Tokyo,
it's not a easy way.
Tokyo is not a small city, but too many inhabitants in there.
And peoples keep their entitlement each other.
You may make agreements and rules for your skating.
But many peoples hate the such as new or minor culture.
And a few peoples deny it.
Many of the new ideas and interest things was
born in such as minor culture,
and every people received the benefit indirectly.
But sometime, new rule deprive a free space, and kill the culture.
No rule is very important as a rule.
