This escalator is listed by the Guinness Book of Records as “the shortest escalator in the world”. The number of steps is only 5.

There are stairs next to the elevator and it seems more efficient to use them. Some foreign people who saw the escalator have remarked how lazy Japanese people are, and wonder why Japanese people want to have escalators everywhere, even at places where they are not necessary.
Some say it was designed to force walkers keeping-right.

You can find it in an underground shopping area in Kawasaki station.
