Art Trains Tokyo Kanto

If you live or work in Tokyo, you may occasionally find yourself out late, either drinking or working. And Tokyo isn’t exactly the city that never sleeps, especially when it comes to its extensive train and subway system. So if you don’t want to get stuck sleeping in a capsule hotel, you’ll need to do some planning. That’s where the Tokyo Last Train Map comes in handy.

From far away it almost looks like fireworks. It's a beautiful visualization of Tokyo's massive transit system as it prepares to slowly turn the lights out on another busy day.
