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).

The real question is, who is the “witness” and who is the “gropee“?

Moment of silence please for the Tokyo…

RIP tokyo metro manner man
Please, let’s now have a moment of silence.

I am deeply saddened to say that a long-time contributer to the 3Yen, the Tokyo Metro Manners Man, who has been featured for years in posters promoting better subway behavior, has disappeared and is presumed lost after taking a train spotting vacation.

Over the years, the 3Yen has featured the trials and tribulations of the long-suffering Metro Manners Man as shown below.

R.I.P._Metro_manners_man

Shown below is the first poster of the Tokyo Metro’s new manners campaign featuring this year’s catchy slogan, “MANNER FART*,” which is similar to the old slogan of Tokyo Gas Company, “MY CITY, MY GAS” (3Yen / 2008-09-24).

*Note: The original Metro poster reads manner-heart (Manner heart) but manner-fart (Manner fart) sounds more euphonious doesn’t it?

Catch MANTA rays on the Metro! — In Tokyo of course

manta-logo
The next time you’re on the Tokyo Metro subway and you see the logo on the right, you can catch MANTA rays—the free Wifi of the new “MANTA” (Metro Amusement Network Trinity App) service. This is a good deal because in Japan, WiFi is seldom free and always a nuisance to find.

According to the wonders of goofy Google Translate of the MANTA developer, NTT Broadband Platform Inc., Metro station information, subway timetables, station maps will offer via mobile device apps for the particular service area you are in without the hassle of searching. The WiFi and apps will offer the day’s video news and “entertainment information” as well as information on avoiding crowded areas and which train cars to board for the best access.

In case you were wondering about it being ominously called a “Trinity App,” learn more information on how this new mobile app with free Wi-Fi access will be used to “track and provide changes to passenger habits” at the report at Computerword (Feb. 13, 2013): Tokyo Metro, which runs the underground trains in the city, will test how riders react to a new mobile portal.
