Q.

What's the youngest age that children can take public transportation on their own in Japan?

A.

While there is no specific law on age, you can see children as young as 5-year-old traveling on a train to school alone in Japan. This is a normal practice because parents are not concerned about safety issues, and children are taught to mind pedestrian crossings, how to take public transportation, and to ask for help when needed.

Is it safe for children to take public transportation alone in your home country?
