These Japanese workers clean an entire train In Just 7 Minutes! Really Unbelievable

A short video depicting the cleaning of Japan’s famous bullet trains has become an online hit, garnering more than 2.6 million views on YouTube as of Monday.

The Japanese, as a culture, is just cleaner. They are used to taking a lot of their trash with them. During last World cup in Brazil, an article published about how Japanese fans brought trash bags to clean up the sections they were sitting in after the game was over. They'd pick up all of the trash and leave those seating sections cleaner than when they came in. It's a lot easier for the cleaning crew to do their job when the people they clean up after are more conscientious. The stadium cleaning service in Brazil finished that day in record time too.

One of the journalists, New York-based Charli James, produced a video in October titled “7-Minute Miracle,” depicting an entire Shinkansen train being cleaned in seven minutes. “Three hundred and twenty-three Shinkansen bullet trains depart Tokyo Station daily, transporting nearly 400,000 passengers every day,” reads an English subtitle in the video.


“Each worker covers one car, about 100 seats,” a subtitle says in another part of the video, which is less than two minutes long. “I traveled on the Shinkansen from Tokyo to Kyoto before starting the Dateline Tokyo program and was very impressed with the trains,” James told The Japan Times when asked about the reason for shooting the cleaning process for bullet trains. “In America, our trains aren’t as clean and on time, so I thought Americans would be interested in seeing how this turnaround process works in Japan,” she added.

This video explains exactly what steps are involved in cleaning a Shinkansen train from nose to tail in the seven minutes between the train’s arrival at the station and its next departure. Cleaning teams are in position on the platform as the train pulls in so as not to waste a second, and, as you can see, no corners are cut as they clear and wipe down each car with incredible speed and efficiency.

The cleanliness of the famous high speed trains in Japan requires a new expression to define it. Adjectives like meticulous and spick and span falls short for it. But the people behind the clean cars of these trains teach the world more than just to clean a train efficiently. They take pride in their work and hold a spirit of hospitality, bowing before the passengers and thanking them for bringing garbage from the train and helping them in their work.
