Franck Strub – 2014 Japan Tour, Day 1 minus 12 hours
Today is my first day in Japan. Since my arrival at Narita international airport, I discover a new country, new people, and of course, I ask myself what are their specificities?
It’s simple: I find them very friendly, polite, smiling and disciplined by nature. Imagine clean subways (trains are cleaned at the end of each service), a functional public transportation system, people who place themselves in a queue and waiting up spontaneously to get in the train, no waiting time to get off the plane, go through customs and get back the luggages.
On my Paris to Tokyo flight, I was placed at the rear of the plane which contained 250 people, and stopwatch in hand it took me 20 minutes to complete this process. What fluidity! How effective they are! « Here’s what a « Lean » system is », I told myself.
Talk to you soon of my first day in the 2014 Japan Tour.
