Leading the Tsukuba Express line, linking Tokyo to Tsukuba , has called for “sincere inconvenience” for passengers , according to the BBC . In a press statement , the company said the train was scheduled to leave at 9:44:40 local time, but it was set to move at 9:44:20. Moreover, the officials explained why this happened: the staff did not check the schedule. “The crew did not check the departure time sufficiently,” the statement said, pointing out that none of the passengers had filed a complaint . The Tsukuba Express line carries passengers from Akihabara , east Tokyo , to Tsukuba in about 45 minutes. Between the two destinations is a distance of 58 kilometers. It rarely happens that trains in Japan, a country with one of the world’s most reliable rail networks, will go to a different hour than scheduled. Obviously, the internet responded, praising the company‘s gesture.
