Vintage Tokyo Subway Manners

“Space Invader”, March, 1979

Rider Patricia sent over this series of vintage Tokyo subway manners posters. The posters appeared between 1976 and 1982, and are too awesome not to share. If we had posters as witty as these, I think we would probably see better behavior on the bus.

You know the big-balls-having, seat-taking guy y’all have complained about? He should see this:

The Seat Monopolizer (July 1976)

There are loads more of these posters so meander over to Pink Tentacle to check them out.
