But sometimes we want something oblete.
Jan 11th, 2017, Tokyo Metro disclosed newly designed and built but looks quite retro subway car at Nakano railyard.

The interior of this car is designed after the first Tokyo Metro subway in Tokyo which started to run at 1927 between current Ueno station and Asakusa station.
This first route still remains as Ginza Line.

Current Ginza Line exterior design is totally plain metal design and interior design is quite simple white colored wall and soft sofa style seat.

On the other hand, this retro car's doors and walls are made in wooden taste and floors and seats are designed as similar as possible to the original train 90 years ago.
You can check out the history on Tokyo Metro Subway at following Website.

    The interior design of the current train looks so plain and more retro to me. Also, the interior of the retro design looks a bit more futuristic. Reminds me of trains in Final Fantasy.
