If you are carrying a backpack, what should you do with it when you enter a crowded train?
The answer is that you have to carry your backpack in front of you! Especially on a packed train, if you have your backpack on your back, it will prevent people from coming in. So the rule is to put it down on the floor between your legs, put it on the top compartment, or carry your backpack in front of you.
Japan is a society full of unspoken rules. Next time you ride the train, observe how people carry their bags and you’ll instantly notice how they are mindful of each other when it comes to their personal belongings.
