Women-Only Subway Cars: They Do Exist!
You hear all the stories about guys on the subway who get touchy-feely and the problems that creates, and then you also hear that things like women-only cars have been created to combat this problem. Well, we are happy to report that yes, they do exist, and we recently rode in one in Tokyo. [sidenote: yes, I am a female]
Although we were tempted to take tons of photos of the civility that reigned inside the car, which was the last carriage on a rush hour train out of the Shinjuku station, we instead took a moment to play local, and only snap this photo while awaiting the train.
For the men out there missing out on the women-only subway cars: you are missing out. It's a nice ride! Our train even sported sakura flower decals and little Hello Kitty stickers on the doors, where she warned riders to keep their fingers clear or risk having them injured. Super kawaii!
