The World’s Shortest Escalator -
More’s Department Store has an eslcalator with only 5 steps, which is almost completely useless even for the chronically lazy. It seems to have no real purpose, other than to qualify as “The World’s Shortest Escalator” in the Guinness Book of World Records. This majestic little gem is famous, and you will see people riding it several times in amazement just to be able to say “I rode the world’s shortest escalator for no real reason”, especially since the trip takes less than 5 seconds. The “Puchicalator” is useless in so many ways, except for its novelty. rOn the other hand, the world’s longest escalator is in Central Hong Kong, not too far behind is the one in Kyoto Station, that will take you halfway up to the stars.
