Japanese Jesus saves…

Japanese Jesus saves brollies as part of this vintage campaign from better subway manners on the Tokyo Metro, which is apropo for the official start of the rainy season in Tokyo*


The idea of the poster is for people to be more considerate and not forget their umbrellas. Every train car on a rainy day in Japan will have several wet umbrellas left behind by their senile owners (or intentionally dumped if the rain has stopped). Rail companies by law have collect and tag, then store all the forgotten moldy brollies for six months so their owners can claim them.

You can find the Bumbershoot Bejebus shown above and more Metro manners posters at:
