If there is one thing that really does get to me in Japan it’s the amazing ability of the locals to be completely motionless in the most inappropriate places, and being christmas/new years period the problem is 100x worse hence the rant.
My List includes but not limited to:
Entry/Exit of the train ticket gates – usually fumbling for the ticket they had at least 5 minutes to fucking find.
Cash register – you mean I have to pay for this shit, fuck, maybe you should have prepared for that
Inside Doorways of trains – exactly dead center even though their stop is 15 stops away – my favorite lesson I teach, bump…
Reserved seat phenomenon – Despite having a reserved seat ticket they will line up thus blocking all through traffic, the mind boggles.
Shinjuku Station – busiest train station in the world with ~4,000,000 people a day throughput… but they will randomly stand in the human traffic areas
Any new shop opening day – really? 2hours+ just to get in? Krispy Kreme’s, Mont Bell, Yamada Denki etc. aren’t that exciting
Shrine on new years day – queue snakes back to the south pole
Christmas Illumination – She better be worth it
These can be minor to extreme annoyances but the one thing that makes me lose it, and more often than not force me into loud obscenities to a pushing through regardless of ramifications, are the complete assholes that push in front of you as you go to enter/exit through the train ticket gate only to see a red (I don’t have correct fare or credit) light on the touch pad/ticket slot indicting they are complete morons… well done genius now get ready for the wrath.
