It is a surprise, then, when the train arrives at Shirokane-takanawa, to watch the businessmen lunge across the platform to transfer to the Mita line. The first year I lunged too. It took forever for me to see it didn’t matter if I boarded third or sixth. Still, every time I must talk to myself to keep from shoving and sprinting with the rest of the crowd. Like at a scary movie when the movie starts in. I have to remind myself: this isn’t real.
