"ALWAYS STAY ON THE LEFT SIDE!" Etiquettes and Behaviors Tip by AusPinay

Etiquettes and Behaviors, Tokyo: 45 reviews and 25 photos

  Stay on the left side when getting in or out
by AusPinay

Don't be daunted by the huge crowds using the trains in Tokyo. We have all seen how packed the trains are either in photos, in media, etc. No worries, they have a cool system!

While there we have not felt inconvenienced at all as the Japanese are very efficient and courteous people. After getting off carriages, they automatically get on/stay on the left side of the escalators/walkways. This allows for those who are rushing to go so they can use the rightside of the laneway/escalators, etc. They folllow this strictly!
