In Japan, the trains are crowded but very clean.
They are also quiet because the use of cell phones on board is prohibited. This is obviously to avoid irritating the people around you.
When you have this many people riding everyday, certain “unusual” norms come to life.
One common occurrence concerns sleeping on the train.
Girls, guys and senior citizens all use the train to catch some sleep.
However, the difference between Japan and the rest of the world is that often times, the sleeping person will sleep on the person sitting next to them.
I have had pretty girls and fat guys trying to sleep on my shoulder…
While I personally will have none of that, this gentleman on the train found a new buddy on this train.
His face speaks a thousand words…wwww
