This year a new railway line opened in the hart of Tokyo, the JR Ueno-Tokyo Line runs from Ueno Station to Tokyo Station. As there's no space in the city there are only 2 ways to construct a new line. Either go underground, or go above on a viaduct over the city. Here the 2nd option was chosen as the new line was built on top of the main railway artery through the city. The new line runs on top of the Yamanote Ring line, the Keihin-Tohoku inner city Line and the Tohoku Shinkansen. It connects the suburban lines from the eastern suburbs that used to terminate in Ueno Station and the suburban lines from the western suburbs (including Yokohama) that used to terminate in Tokyo Station. With the new line commuters don't have to change trains as often as they used to do, relieving the pressure on the very busy inner city railway lines and the metro system.

As it runs above ground it also created an opportunity to climb the stairs of the buildings along this railway corridor and take pictures of the trains running above the city through the Kanda neighborhood.
