Towards the end of the day the Tokyo mass transit becomes rather crowed as the last trains are the last chance to get back home quickly and cheaply. So like on virtually all lines the cars of “my” Keiō Inokashira Line leaving Shibuya turn into cattle cars with people packed in as tightly as possible. I took these photos of the next-to-last train while I was actually waiting for next, the last, train as this one was already too crowded for me when I arrived at the platform… but still people kept entering into the completely filled passenger cars.

This train car was pretty much already full, so people queued up on the platform for the next train.

Still people entered the car by simply walking backwards into it.

Surprisingly, with the passengers crammed like sardines the doors closed without external assistance.
