When there's a big event, concert, or sports game, one would expect that there will be crowds of people bustling in the area and that train stations as well as other modes of transportation will be filled with people.
But when three different events ended at about the same time, all within the same area, everybody was in for a very tough and uncomfortable train ride. Sora News 24 reports:
The crowds at Kaihin Makuhari Station, though, about half an hour east of Tokyo in Chiba City, are less regular. Chiba doesn’t have anywhere near the population Tokyo does, and so Kaihin Makuhari isn’t a commuter nightmare like Tokyo’s three Shi-s.
But there’s a good reason Kaihin Makuhari is designed with a large, open plaza just outside its gates. The station is the nearest access point for Makuhari Messe, one of the Tokyo area’s largest convention centers, as well as Chiba Marine Stadium, home to professional baseball team the Chiba Lotte Marines.
Both venues were in use on Tuesday night, with the Marines taking on the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters and Makuhari hosting both a concert by legendary J-rock duo B’z and a fan event for the Idolmaster anime/video game franchise.
Now, despite the harrowing experience being crammed in one station amidst a sea of people, when you are a hardcore fan, come hell or high water, nothing will stop you from going to see your favorite team, band, or anime event. And these fanbases must have gone home incredibly satisfied after their events and an interesting experience to share with others.
