The sun is low and darkness is descending over the man-made islands of Tokyo Bay. Fishing boats are docked and auto traffic is relatively quiet, yet the monorail is still busy. Thousands of passengers are using it to get from Haneda Airport back to central Tokyo, or they're commuting to or from their place of work. This is the Shibaura district, a mix of industrial and residential complexes. The frequent passing of the quiet monorail doesn't seem to bother the many people that live and work here.
