The new Sakuradori Line extension of the Nagoya subway opens on March 27.
Four new stations have been built to extend the line from Nonami: Narukokita, Aioiyama, Kamisawa and Tokushige. Before the trains started running the local wards held a free competition to select a number of people who could walk the tunnels.
The journey time from Nagoya Station to Tokushige is 35 minutes.
