"shinkansen..." Rail - In and out of Tokyo by Train Tip by husain

We encountered a bunch of extremely mild-mannered Japanese travellers, whose seats we had taken by accident, instead of ours. They stood around in one part of the coach, extremely reluctant to ask us to check if we had the right seat numbers etc. It was probably an hour into the journey when they finally asked and we made an embarassed correction to our seating plan! Typically japanese!
