    RUNNING THE METRO

    by Onedragon Updated Nov 16, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN CALL IT A SPORT..BUT IT KEEPS ONE BUSY !!!!! AND THAT IS RUNNING THE SUBWAY AND METRO IN ORDER TO CATCH THE TRAIN ON TIME...
    I AM ALWAYS SO HAPPY TO GET TO THE TRAIN BEFORE OR JUST BEFORE IT LEAVES TO THE DESTINATION I AM IN PURSUIT OF !! : )
    SO ..GET READY. .AND GO..GO ..GO !!! !Train stops are announced in both English and Japanese. Announcements also provide connecting line information.
    Ticketing machines can switch between English and Japanese user interfaces.
    Train stations are signposted in English and Japanese (in kanji and hiragana).
    Train stations are now also consecutively numbered on each color-coded line, allowing even non-English speakers to be able to commute without necessarily knowing the name of the station. For example, Shinjuku Station on the Marunouchi Line is also signposted as M-08 with the familiar red colored circle surrounding it; even if a commuter could not read the English or Japanese station names on signs or maps, he or she could simply look for the red line and then find the appropriately numbered station on said line.

    Equipment: GOOD WALKING OR RUNNING SHOES!!!!

    The Nippon Budokan, is an arena for martial art

    by gogonicetrip Written Feb 24, 2007

    The Nippon Budokan is an arena located in Kitanomaru Park in the central of Tokyo.

    It was originally built for the Judo competition in the 1964 Summer Tokyo Olympics, hence its name, rendered into English is "The Martial Arts Hall".

    In addition, for many Westerners, the Nippon Budokan is synonymous with large-scale rock concerts.

    It was here that the Beatles made their Japanese debut and the location where many "Live at the Budokan" albums were recorded.

    Sumo, is a Japan's National Sports

    by gogonicetrip Updated Nov 4, 2006

    Sumo, Japan's National Sport, not only Japanese but an increasing number of non-Japanese among its funs.

    In Sumo, two wrestlers face off in the middle of the Dohyo (ringed platform) measuring 4.55 meters in diameter. Clad only in Mawashi, they first engage in pre-bout ritual such as striking fearsome poses and scattering purifying salt on the ring, all of which actions are part of Sumo's ancient tradition.
    This ritual is one of the aspects that particularly appeals to foreign fans.
    Although there are 70 different ways to win a bout.

    Wrestlers are ranked after each tournament on the basis of their won/lost record.
    The top rank of Yokozuna has been conferred upon over 60 men.

    Soccer in central Tokyo

    by Rebecca_jp Written Feb 21, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can find many soccer fans in this city, just go to Yoyogi Park on sundays and you will find a group of young crazy japanese guys willing to get more people to have a soccer match.
    If you see a tiny goal in the park is because they are around, you will be always welcome to join.
