For even more fun, check out the quoter leftofficialquoter right Tokyo Metro manners poster for the month of June.

Even though Tokyo already has been cloudy/rainy for a couple of days, Tokyo’s official rainy season (tsuyu) is supposed to start June 8th (japan-guide.com). The Japan Meteorological Agency announced that the rainy season has started in the southern half of Japan in the Chogoku, Kinki and Tokai regions (Japan Metrological Agency).

    Creepier than the Elephant Man featured in the Tokyo Metro’s train manners poster for this month, is the smaller character on the bottom right of the poster, “Miteru-chan” who sort of looks like Kenny of South Park.

    Miteru (watching) means “to watch” and chan (chan) meaning “darling Miss”. In the drawing Miss Watching/Miteru-chan is making the Japanese whistle-blowing sound “Pii pii—” (pi-pi).
    In other words, The Metro is watching and blowing the whistle on you.
