Escalator -- both sideways and up and down.

Upscale Ebisu Garden Place was quite the grind to get to: flat escalator after flat escalator...reducing a 15-minute walk to 10 minutes. Remember: Walk right, stand left -- the stark opposite of both Toronto and Osaka. If you don't, people queue irritatedly behind you before nosing their way past you.
But the most wondrous escalator trip was when I emerged from a subway deep in Tokyo's underground. I just didn`t know how deep until I saw the escalator...and the picture was only about half of it! Deep. So *very* deep.
