Tokyo-based English-language news blog SoraNews24 prides itself on finding “fun, weird, and intriguing news” from Japan and Asia, and we have to agree that these elevators meet all of those criteria. In a recent blog post, the author recounts the adventure of “Mr. Sato” as he left a train and made his way to a newly opened Bic Camera electronics store in Tokyo. He followed directional signs to the elevators, but at first thought he was lost at the sight of these lifts brilliantly disguised as train car entrances. We’ve seen some clever ideas before, and this one is right up there with the best. So, what do you think would be a cool elevator design?
