Japan's subway commuters are annoyed with cell phones
If you plan on taking a trip to the land of the rising sun, there are just some etiquette tips you should keep in mind if you plan on using the subway over there. Apparently ringtones blasting away and chatting on your phone are things you should refrain from doing if you’re a passenger in a Japanese train. Of course many foreigners would probably complain about Japan’s vast network of subways and the reluctance of others to give up their seats to pregnant women and senior citizens. Other than keeping your cell phone etiquette in mind, you’d better also keep conversations to a minimum and no heavy music blasting through your headphones – these are just the common examples aside from the pushing and shoving going on a train that are considered bad rail manners according to an online survey. Keep these tips in mind and you’ll be safe from seeing dark long stares your way.
