    i think its 6M, not 8M.

    Anyway I felt taking subway in Tokyo is bliss; people queue up, they move to the centre of the car, exits are everywhere and worse case if you missed one the other train will arrive in less than few minutes after each other.
    I have experience also and its not fun :-(

    the worse case I got is that waited for 4 trains before able to board the train to go to work.
    Know what?? Every train interval was around 1 - 2 mins so I waited for 8 mins max.. Not much to complain actually
