A Look Inside the Tokyo Traffic Control Center



The "Trends in Japan" blog got the chance to stop by the Tokyo Traffic Control Center and get an in-depth look at how traffic operates in Tokyo minute-by-minute.


Seated in the middle is the Commander of the Control Center, with operators on the sides to collect information. The Information Board on the far right can display anything from handwritten notes to additional maps brought up on the computers.

I got a chance to visit the traffic control center for our county, but it wasn't anything like this. . .The Japanese certainly know how to do a thing. Makes me wonder about other major cities. . .

Now THAT's a monitor! I counte 72 panels that made up that behemoth.

By the way, there's a funny comment on the blog: "What happens when Godzilla attacks?"
