How to Ride Trains Safely

Hello everyone! This is Yuhi from JapanSync management!

Have you ever ridden on a crowded train in Japan? In major cities, the morning and evening rush hours can be a real drag to get on the train!

In this article, I will summarize the dangers that lurk in these crowded trains and how to avoid them.

Dangers Possibility of being involved in crimes such as molestation and pickpocketing

Although the risk of pickpocketing is relatively low in Japan, it does not mean that it will never happen. It is necessary to take countermeasures such as holding your bag in front of your chest. Unfortunately, the number of cases of molestation is very high in Japan, so both men and women need to be vigilant. In recent years, it has been reported that some people are falsely accused of molestation even though they did not actually commit the crime. It is advisable to take measures such as holding the strap with both hands.

Not being able to get off at the station you want to get off at

When there are many people on a train, it is often difficult to get off at the station you want to get off at. It is a good idea to know in advance which station you want to get off at, and move to a place where it is easy to get off when the train is stopped at the station in front of you.

Infectious Diseases Covid19 was a pandemic, but even before that, influenza tended to be a pandemic in Japan. If you are concerned, be sure to wear a mask and wash your hands thoroughly.

How to Avoid Use other modes of transportation such as cars or buses. Walk one stop or go to the first station nearby, or choose a station or train line that is relatively empty. Board the train from the door farthest from the stairs or ticket gate. Avoid crowded times.
