Tokyo had a power outage after a crane cut a cable shutting down power in parts of Tokyo on Monday.
The outage lasted around 3 hours and brought chaos to the city.
“It was really terrible,” said Naoko Maruyama, a 29-year-old office worker. “I had never experienced anything like it. I had to wait two hours at home until the trains re-started and it was sweltering because I could not use the air-conditioning.”
Fortunately, much of Japan is on holidays this week, with the Obon summer break.
