″Your farts are not music.″
Today is the first, May Day, and the Tokyo Metro has a new train manners poster up for the month—This time its chastising folks for farting on the train. (Actually, this poster is just reminding passengers not play their earphones too loud.)
The Tokyo Metro’s posters have covered other bad train manners including:
• Kicking butt on the Tokyo Metro (3Yen 2015-04-01)
• Getting hammered on the Metro (3Yen 2015-03-03)
• No farting on the Metro (3Yen 2015-02-06)
• Don’t play with your nuts on the Metro (3Yen 2014-11-15)
Last year the Tokyo Metro’s manners mascot, “Miteru chan” (lit. Miss Watching), was only looking for infractions of decorum on the trains.
This year she’s kicking butt on bad Metro manners.
The Metro’s manners mascot, Miteru chan, had previous concerns including:
The month of February’s train manners poster for the Tokyo Metro warns folks to not fart around.
The long nightmare for the handicapped, the Tokyo Metro’s Ginza Line, is finally going to remodeled.
It’s about fcuking time, grrr.
The terminus of the Ginza Line in Shibuya—Japan’s 3rd busiest station—only has partial elevator access to only one half of the station. Other stations of the Ginza Line also feature unique Japanese innovations like:
• Wheelchair ramps ending in a flight of stairs,
• Steps leading to handicapped restrooms,
• Random pipes in the middle of pathways,
• Conduits and ventilation ducts hanging from the
ceiling below 180 cm (5 feet 9 inches),
• And stair tread depths smaller than size 24 cm
(US size 8) shoes.
The Tokyo Metro manners poster for December warns of the holiday rush of horny reindeer and rhino salarymen.
Previous 3Yen reports of the dangers of December’s holiday rush on the Tokyo’s subway system include:
Don’t play with your nuts on the subway.

Better yet are the posters in the northernmost big city of Japan, Sapporo. Way up in pseudo-Siberia, Sapporo’s subway system has posters that are better than the banal banners for Tokyo’s Metro Manners.

Campaign against male violence in the Paris Metro

“The testicles are not crystal, they do not explode. The closure of the thighs is preferable.”
Notice to men who lounge about, legs apart, on the seats of the Paris Metro..The collective, Dare feminism, is launching a Takebackthemetro campaign and a petition on Oct. 31st.
“The subway’s atmosphere is hostile to women. According to a survey we conducted, three quarters of women are forced to develop coping strategies, adapt their own behavior, and carefully choose where they sit,” says Anne-Cécile Mailfert, on behalf of the association.
