I would trade Japan's rail system for the U.S.'s roadway network any day. The rail system here is a laughingstock among industrialized nations, yet we claim to be the greatest country on earth. I was so impressed with the railway system in Tokyo, the Narita Express was especially comfortable and efficient.

Do japanese metros have open gangways between cars?
Not on the trains I was on

most no. they have doors

Okinawa's Monorail (well its only two cars)

Tobu Railway opened Minami-yorii Station (TJ35) on October 31. A new station established between Tobu-Takezawa Station and Obusuma Station on the Tojo Line.



The station situated on the south side of Yorii Town, and because it is adjacent to Honda Motor Saitama Factory Yorii Plant, the sub-name <Honda Yorii-mae> is added in anticipation.





For the time being, the fare to Minami-yorii Station is the same as it to the station just before (Tobu Takezawa Station from Ikebukuro or Obusuma Station from Yorii). The same applies when using IC cards. At this station, passengers are instructed to use different automatic ticket gates (green or blue) depending on their direction.
