Hellooooo It's Rino from Sakura Hotel Ikebukuro :D
This time, I'd like to talk about
how to survive on the train during morning rush hour in Tokyo.
I've been using crowded train since I was high school student.
The train leaves from the nearest station from my house, it is the most crowded line running in Tokyo.
Between 7am ~ 9am is rush hour in Tokyo and around 8 is the peak. |дﾟ)
it's not just like crowded. It's packed. It's crammed with people.
Especially when weather is gloomy.
I've seen some video of the rush hour's train in Tokyo that passengers are crammed into the train by station staff.
This happens often ( ;∀;)
Some people say they want to get experienced being on the crammed train.
But I'm sure they would say don't want to take that train never again.
I highly recommend you not to take rush hour train when you travel in Tokyo.
I really am sick of taking rush hour's train :)
Because It's just so so stressfull. haha
But if you can't avoid taking these trains, I'll give you some tips to survive on the train.
First of all, you may think Japanese people are so rude cuz even if someone push or pull or squeeze or tackle you, they might not say "Sorry" or anything.
But don't be offended. Of course they are not doing it on purpose.
And imagine if you need to say sorry all the time you push someone on the crowded train, I don't even know how many more than hundred times I apologize.
So even if they don't apologize you, please do not get angry. lol
This is my beautiful drawing.
Do not stay in yellow zone and try to go far away from the door as much as you can when you get on the train.
The yellow zone in this picture is like hell. The most crowded place on the train.
If you stay there, you will be squished and smashed and crushed. Bye Bye.
And if you think you get bored on the train and want to use your mobile phone, read some book...? don't enter with your arms down.
Manyyyy people get on at a time, so you won't have a time and space to use your phone.
If you take a back pack, hold it in front of you.
↑ This is my " On the way work " style.
Anyway, I hope my tips can help you even just a bit and save your Tokyo train life.
You didn't know, now you know.
