    Monorail
    Disney Resort Line

    The monorails in Tokyo do no serve quite the same role as they do in America. In America they represent an attraction or a somewhat exotic transportation system. The Japanese, however, are a people well versed in daily, rail-based transportation. In Tokyo, the Disneyland monorail is just an extension of the larger Tokyo rail system that most people use on a daily basis. In fact, Japanese law requires that people must pay for each trip on the monorail as it falls under the jurisdiction of Japanese transit laws and taxes. As such, the monorail doesn't seem all that different from the larger Tokyo rail system, although there are definite, notable Disney touches.

      Wonderful lines and DoF! These rings and the mouse-ears-shaped windows were definitely my favorite parts of the otherwise "meh" Tokyo Disney monorails.
