Don’t play with your nuts on the Tokyo Metro

Check out the original Tokyo Metro manners poster.

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.

party-train_220x
Every Halloween for the past 30 years or so, the gaijin/aliens (foreigners) of Tokyo have had a tradition of getting roaring drunk in costume and then turning a couple of cars of the Yamanote commuter line into a “party train” much to the chagrin of sad-sack salarymen.

Please party on the train!
