The monorails of Tokyo and beyond

Unlike other countries, such as the United States, Japan has perfected its rail system, including the monorail, which is more practical due to its fast and economical production, but above all built above ground to save precious land space. A monorail makes much less noise than a conventional rail train, is always on time and has a much greater capacity than a bus serving in several major Japanese cities.
