Peak Commuting times

Hello again,
Could you please tell the peak times for commuters in Japan so that if at all possible I can avoid those times to travel :O)


Hi There,

It does depend on the city, but in general you should expect heavier commuter traffic 07:00-09:30 and 17:00-19:30.

Hope this helps!
