Tokyo Subway Manner Posters
Even though Tokyo subways are generally very crowded, I haven’t observed much bumping or rude behavior at all, and the trains and stations are also quite clean. I wrote about Tokyo subways in a previous blog post.
Tokyo Metro launched a series of ads this year to remind subway riders of “manners”. Every month, a new manner poster is displayed on all subway stations. The latest reflects the current autumn weather (although I have no idea why they have snow in the poster at this time of the year) and the Japanese love for the game of golf. Notice again, the English text in the poster.
I’ll post previous month’s posters below as well.
