Episode #03: Roundup + α
This show features the new faces of Tokyo, where many professionals gather creating the Tokyo culture with their passion and technology.
In this episode, we will be returning our focus to the employees of the Tokyo Metro subway system and the Tokyo Metropolitan Police, who we covered in the last two episodes. First, we will follow train engineer Hiroyuki Ogawa and conductor Junichi Kato as they apply their technical expertise to ensuring their train arrives at every stop safely, and without delay. We will then revisit the Shiodas, the husband-and-wife police duo from the last episode who lives in a residential version of the neighborhood police station known as residential kobans. We will see how they use local events and their days off to promote safety to their neighbors—a tactic that is only possible for police living in the community they serve.
TOKYO HOT TOPICS
In this segment, we will take a look at the new passenger ship waterfront terminal that is being built in time for the 2020. The terminal will serve the increasing number of foreign visitors who are coming to Japan via cruise ships, and will be able to accommodate even large passenger ships. It will offer easy access to Ginza, Asakusa, and other tourist hotspots, making it a great gateway to Tokyo.
