As you know, the land values very high in Tokyo, it causes a lot of problems and one of the largest ones is parking. There are quite a few cars in Tokyo, and the parking spaces are extremely limited. It is natural that half of two lane roads are occupied with illegal parking cars. There are so many illegal parking that the police cannot control it. We Japanese rarely buy parking tickets because we know that our illegal parking would not be charged. And if we are fared of the parking, we only curse the police and pay the fare reluctantly. When I came back to Tokyo last month, I found that illegal parking of bikes and motorcycles were strictly supervised around train stations. As I usually use motorcycles to move around in Tokyo, it is very embarrassing. I strongly feel that Tokyo is getting harder to live in.
