家族でいく現代の阿房列車 Stories of "Aho" Railfan from Tokyo
鉄道は、たくさんの人たちをつないでくれる「道」だと思います。 This is a blog about railways in Japan and around the world by an enthusiast.
A charm of cycling in Japan (1): "Bicycle tree", Mechanical cycle parking in JR Omori station, Tokyo

I am a railfan and also love cycling very much in and outside Japan.  As a cyclist, I cannot ignore the situation of bicycle transportation in Japan and also comparison with other countries.

Today I have found a very efficient and technological bicycle parking today near my home and surprised.
This is "bicycle tree" near JR Omori station, Keihin Tohoku line. A bicycle is stored underground automatically in just 10 seconds.

This was developed by JFE steel Industry seemingly more than 10 years ago. Still to me, it looks innovative and advanced system.


In Japan, bicycles are heavily used by people and they make Japanese cities especially megalopolis Tokyo and Osaka more or less ecological without relying too much on automobiles, although they are not so organized and many problems remain.  (A photo below is bicycles parked in prohibited area of narrow sidewalk which may block pedestrians.)
