山手線 Yamanote Line

Trains are the lifelines of Tokyo but no train line is more important than the Yamanote Line. Running in a circle with the Imperial Palace at its center, the Yamanote Line serves 29 stations and takes roughly an hour to complete a circuit. Depending on where you want to go, you are never farther than 30 minutes from your station as you can ride it in a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction. About 3.7 million people ride the Yamanote Line daily, a fact that will be impressed into your mind when you are riding it during rush hour cheek-to-cheek with the people next to you.
