The advertisements in the trains of Japan never fails to entertain me. They’re either covered with text or bombarded with colorful images. When I was staying there, I always notice some public service ads that sometimes sarcastically reminds us commuters to mind our own manners and so I randomly snapped up a few for keepsake.
These ones are generally found on the JR line and I’m already guilty of the first one!
They should hang this one in our MRTs too!
Anyhoos, its rule of thumb that you can’t talk on your mobile while commuting on the trains in Japan. Some cars even require you chuck it out the window… I mean turn it off entirely. Every Japanese there usually switches it to Manner Mode (aka silent mode) and starts practicing otaku-ism on it.. (though actually I think most are just checking train times and weather reports).
Most foreigners aren’t aware of the SHUTDUPP rule and then only realises it when people start throwing daggers at them. Seriously we should implement the same thing to commuters here and it applies most of the time to forgeiners who blabs as if they are in their own house! We need some Do It At Home sarcasm too! LOL
