TOKYO -- Twenty-one train lines in the Japanese capital including the Yamanote Line will run later into the night during the Tokyo Olympic Games being held July 23 to Aug. 8, the East Japan Railway Co. (JR East) announced June 30.

The move comes in response to requests from the Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, which expects spectators at the events. The extra services will add one to two hours to the schedule daily. Parts of the Yamanote Line, the Keihin-Tohoku Line and the Negishi Line will also offer services in the 2 a.m. hour.





*other articles state that 20 different railways (including those in neighboring prefectures) will run extra trains on 64 lines during the event.  JR East alone will run around 4900 extra services, typically 250 to 300 extra services/day.

Will be fun when visitors will be banned from the Olympics, something which is possible now that the covid cases are on the rise again. What will happen then?
