400 passengers stranded on train amid heavy snow in northern Japan

Hundreds of people were stranded on a train for more than 15 hours because of heavy snowfall in Niigata Prefecture, central Japan.

More than half of the passengers on the four-car train on East Japan Railway Co.'s Shinetsu Line evacuated earlier in the morning with their relatives coming to pick them up by vehicle.

These videos, taken by an onlooker, show efforts by a railway worker to shovel snow off the tracks in front of the train. Two women who felt ill were also rescued.

"I just want to sleep", a male passenger said.

The train was stuck in Sanjo city, about 300km northwest of Tokyo.

Due to delays and cancelations of train services caused by the snow, the train was crowded at the time.

The operator did not let the passengers leave the train overnight, saying it was unsafe to go outside given the heavy snowfall.

Transport minister Keiichi Ishii said he had instructed the operator to investigate why it took so long to help the passengers and resume the train service.
