Once we again, we owe our friends at Macworld UK (specifically Jonny Evans) thanks for pointing this out: .Mac user masanorif has posted a fantastic movie of the line to get into Appleis new Ginza Apple Store on opening day.
The movie walks you from the storeis doors to the end of the line, which was marked in typical Japanese fashion by a uniform-wearing person holding a sign that says "End of Line," according to masanorifis captions. (As more people got in line, heid move a bit farther back lest anyone have trouble figuring it out on their own.)
While we have seen many images and movies from Apple Store openings over the years, weive never seen anything of this magnitude. The line stretches down the block, down another block, across the street, and across yet another street in a stunning statement of how much interest there was in Apple first non-US store.
