Spring holiday exodus begins in Japan

posted on April 29, 2016

The annual "Golden Week" holiday exodus has begun in Japan.

Highways, railways and airports are crowded on Friday as people head to vacation destinations or their hometowns.

Traffic slowed to a crawl along a 30-kilometer stretch of the Tomei Expressway that links Tokyo and Nagoya. Other highways are also heavily congested.

Railway companies say trains on many Shinkansen lines leaving Tokyo were filled to capacity in the morning. Some trains carried more than twice the official passenger capacity.
