Photographer's Note

Toneri Liner is a guidance rail type train line which connects Nippori Station in Arakawa-ku, Tokyo, and Minumadai-shinsuikōen Station of Adachi-ku, Tokyo and it is operated by the Tokyo Metropolitan Bureau of Transportation. Business was started at the end of March, 2008. It has 9.7 km in full length, 13 stations, and connects its area in about 20 minutes. On the way, it passes through the Sumida River and Arakawa. The background which was able to do this train route is because the traffic congestion with them which has many amounts of passings of large-size cars, such as a truck continued in this area and the on-time transportation of the city-operated bus became difficult. So, this route was made as the dissolution measure. This route is an elevated orbital train line, and is running by the automated system operation of a five-car formation. I use this route when going to Toneri-kōen, and this photograph is taken from platform of Toneri-kōen Station.
