In Japan there are lots of subways: Ginza line, Hibya line, Asakusa line and many more. In Japan they are very interested in keeping rules. Maybe it’s because there is so little space that people have to learn how to respect others’ space. I think people in Japan people are very creative and they communicate their rules with graphics. On subways there are signs to show people what not to do. I like collecting signs like cards similar to collecting cards from Pokémon or Magic the Game.
This one warns people not to smoke near kids or yell loudly and make bikes crash. I think that maybe these signs are not really necessary. These are good ideas but people probably already know these things.
This is one of my favorite parts of the subways in Japan. I love Japan because they have creative ideas. Being in Japan teaches me how to respect other people’s space and not do the things on the signs. When I go back home I notice that we don’t have so many reminders about polite behaviors. Does this mean that Americans are ruder? Or maybe that Americans don’t have to be so worried about other people because we have more space? I think that we could improve our manners in public and do a better job taking care of other people.
