Japrish: Train Commuter Etiquette Poster at Harajuku JR Station

shares

The 9th photo in the Japrish photo compilation (my own version of Engrish) is the second from what could be called a “train commuter’s etiquette” poster we found at Harajuku JR station in Tokyo.

Japrish - JR train commuter etiquette

Oh the pain... Don't look!

Just like the smokers ettiquette Japrish poster from Harajuku JR station, it’s not that the English in this poster is wrong (that’s not always the point of Japrish), it’s how they are giving advice which is the funny thing. In Australia, you would just see a big bold sign “Do not run towards the closing doors of the train”.

Take a look at the rest of the Japrish posts (see related articles below), and join us on Twitter or Facebook, or get new post email alerts by email or RSS. Not even half the poster has been revealed, so check back soon to see the rest!
