Japan’s escalators are a microcosm of Japanese society — uniqueness and creativity, but we also see Japan’s politeness, manners and even customer service all on moving steps. In this episode, we travel to Osaka, Kyoto, Tokyo and Kawasaki to see some of Japan’s amazing escalators!
★ Puchicalator at Moore’s Department Store in Kawasaki City
★ Kyoto Station’s Escalator
★ Umeda Sky Building, Osaka (The World’s Highest Escalator)
★ Tokyo’s multi-level escalator (Kudanshita Station)
★ Spiral Escalator, Landmark Tower, Yokohama From spiral escalators to escalators that go high into the sky, this program covers them all. I climbed the escalator in Kyoto Station to the top in this recent video.
