► This is a tribute to Yamanote Line, one of the most important local lines in inner Tokyo.
Mention the name "Yamanote Line" to anyone who has been to Tokyo, and you can be sure it's a source of fond memories, as this circle-line travels through the most important urban centres of Tokyo, such as Shinagawa, Harajuku, Shibuya, Shinjuku, Akihabara & Ueno. And not forgetting, just about every station has its own little cute "anime-like" departure jingle, that will stick as glue to your mind as in forever.
The first, and shorter version of the Yamanote Line, was opened in 1885, whereas the line as it is today, was finished in 1913. A complete circle travelling the 35km/24 miles with the inner line (they go clock- and anticlock-wise) takes roughly 1 hour, stopping at all 29 stations.
This video features the ride from Shinjuku to Shinagawa, with a brief "stop" at Ebisu Station, which departure-melody is the jingle of a famous old tv-commercial of the Ebisu Brewery. - Enjoy!
