High Tech Bike Parking in Tokyo

We recieved this cool link from Japan about a bike parking system at the Kasai train station in Tokyo. Japan boasts a wonderful bike culture and they are tech wizards, so it's great to see the two in concerto.

There's room for 9400 bikes and it takes 23 seconds to get your bike back when you retrieve it. Not to mention it only costs 100 yen, or 1800 yen for a monthly pass.

We love aestheticism here at Copenhagenize but we love technology, too. This bike parking system is wicked cool.
