...For what purpose...
But why? Why is this needed?
lol Japanese people walk funny...
the best part is that you have to take the stairs down afterwards...so its really just for the laughs i guess XD
Stairs right after it and why do they only go downwards? Would make a lot more sense if they went up.
theyr missing a second escalator after that...there was still more stairs xD
....maybe its suppose to be a joke...right?
I like that they have to walk down more stairs!
i have an escalator like that at my mallin new jersey
No, I rode this escalator and it's unreal to see how the majority of Japanese will stand on it rather than just walk down.In some stations there will be a line of 20+ people to stand on an escalator instead of walking up.
Purpose = so Japan can be as fat as the US & Mexico ;)
Japan: Adding that VERY-little piece of false hope to over weight people everywhere.
Only in Japan.
Did they just give up when installing it?
They must have had left over parts and left over budget.
i thought the japs arent that lazy
dont know whats worse, that there were stairs right after it... or the fact that this video is 41 seconds long
Слабо ножками 83 см пройти?:-D
I'm sorry sir, but we don't have enough money for an escalator.Owner: I don't care what you cut off, but I want this mother f***ing escalator!!There goes next month pay again... *sigh*
maybe it was regular escalator before.. and maybe something happened like land subsidence by earthquake..? im kinda curious there is a little history or not.
HAHAHA!! I think japan wanted have something to put on Guinness Book!!
In Montreal, we have one that leads straight up to a wall.http://www.journaldemontreal.com/2011/12/20/montez-tout-droit-vers-le-murPardon my French.
i think the reason is for ppl not getting stuck in the middle of the stairway, or chatting and contemplating. it makes sense to me, and im not japanese
