43,000 yesterday. 46,000 today.

That's how many people are leaving leaving Japan via Narita Airport. Why? It's the beginning of Golden Week--4 national holidays in a seven day span. This week, a few precious vaation days can be stretched into a 9 day holiday. And about 10% of Tokyo's population leaves not only the city, but the entire country. Even more take trips to visit famous sightseeing locations in Japan or to spend time with far-flung relatives.

However, the smart bet is to stay in Tokyo and enjoy the quiet. I'll get a seat on every train this week!
