Vintage Tokyo subway "manner" posters, via Pink Tentacle



































Whether extolling the virtues of giving up your seat for the elderly or infirm or simply reminding you to remember your umbrella, these posters are beautifully detailed and are typical of the Japanese tendency to do everything -- even a humble subway poster -- in a top notch fashion.

I particularly love that there are so many posters to remind drunks not to pass out on the train. Omoshiroi!

Totemo omoshiroi!! Thanks for posting this! I especially love the poster of Santa that says, "I look like Santa because you've had too much to drink. It's only October. If you drink, be considerate of the other passengers."

Man, I love Japan sometimes!
