Tokyo Metro is Japan’s largest subway system, and they have come out with a new series of “Manner Posters” so that we can all just get along better when riding the subway. I thought that this new series was good enough for a chuckle. 

Since it is all about doing the right thing, every month a new poster asking you to “Please do it at…” appears. To our left is the one of the funnier ones from August. People do try and run into the trains as the doors are closing – the illustration tries to put a humorous tone to this bad practice.

April’s Manner Poster is asking the boy to do it at home. He is just chillin’, making himself home on the train. No harm done. 

 

Other “Please do it at home” posters from past months include, not putting on your makeup, not blasting music on your headphones, and making what appears to be frantic phone calls while on the subway. You can see them all here (click on an image to enlarge).
