No talking please
« on: Friday 27-Sep-2019, 08:17* »
According to Mick Cleary in D.tel this s morning the announcer on the Sapporo/airport link kept demanding ‘No talking’ on the train to the rugby match at the weekend. Would cut out the buzz of going to any match. He clearly was not at Brighton station when the SA supporters clapped the Japanese supporters on to the train!  He says he has not ‘dared’ to get a train to Twickenham or Cardiff for 20 years which is a bit pathetic obviously not a forward!

I think I'm right in saying that on Japanese trains they take the "Quiet Carriage" seriously. The ordinary person in the carriage will also remonstrate against people talking/on the phone/using headphones etc in a Quiet Carriage.

They do like the carriage to be very quiet. It's just how they do things. Lots of respect for others. It's a part of what makes it an amazing country.

I honestly couldn't tell you - what's Eurotrash On Tour?

So it's just like getting the tube to work - I think no talking/noise on public transport is wonderful idea.

I can understand the request. Public transport there is, whilst fantastically good, pricey...I guess they are trying to ensure everyone is enjoying the experience considering how much they pay for it. The request fits in with the culture - so quietly and calmly respectful.

It’s a brilliant place and the 2 weeks we had on holiday there in 2013 were 2 of the best. Culturally, historically, hospitality wise - it really is something else. Envious of anyone who is there for the World Cup. A couple of guys at work have just gone over for it - single and with no commitments. Will be the trip of a lifetime!
