  1. So many improprieties, from a Japanese point of view: eating in public, make-up, phone calls, and fixing hair. Tobu train? Must be. Ah Saitama…

  2. @jamesmallon Eating? Who’s eating in public? No one was putting on makeup, just looking at their hair. If someone gets a quick call and he quickly says “hey I’m on the train” and hangs up, it’s not that bad (although this guy seems to be talking for a bit longer).

    This is not that uncommon a scene in Japan, and I think only the most diehard of sticklers would get angry at this scene.
