Today I’ve got another not so good experience again with trains in Japan. This time it is related to the accident (人身事故) at the train line. At 10.40 there was a 人身事故 at Den-en Toshi Line at Tsukimino Station (つきみ野駅).
At that time I was already at Kajigaya Station (梶ヶ谷駅) on my way to go to the campus for my class. Because of the accident, all the trains at Den-en Toshi Line stopped and waited for preparation of substitute trains from Nagatsuta to Shibuya direction. (I guess so, because I couldn’t really understand what the station and train staff were talking about). It was only one more station until Mizonokuchi Station to change to Oimachi Line. But what could I do, the train stopped at Kajigaya and I didn’t know how long it would take for them to take care of the impact of the accident. I was thinking about walking from Kajigaya to Mizonokuchi, but I didn’t know the route if I walked from Kajigaya to Mizonokuchi and I didn’t know whether it would be faster or not. So I could only wait in the train.
After hearing the announcement about the accident, people’s faces became so sad and angry. There were many people making phone call and I could hear すみません here and there from people apologizing because they would be late from their appointment. I myself was also late for my class. I arrived at the campus at almost 1 hour after the class started. So I didn’t go into the class today.
