More Do's and Don'ts

Quiet on the bus!

Here are a few more points of Japanese etiquette to keep in mind as you prepare for your trip.

+keep your baggage out of the way as much as possible on trains and buses.
+let taxi drivers open and close the doors for you.

Do Not
-talk loudly or use cellphones on public transportation.
-stand on the wrong side of the escalator.*

*In Tokyo (and Eastern Japan), people stand on the left, while in Osaka (and Western Japan), people tend to stand on the right. Just keep an eye out for what other people are doing, and you should be fine.
