Pushing People On A Crowded Japanese Train

Oshiya, or “pusher”, is an informal Japanese term for a worker who stands on the platform of a railway station during the morning and evening rush hours, and pushes people onto the train. This video is taken in 1991 on the Seibu-Ikebukuro Line in Tokyo in the morning rush.
