A problem and a solution.

Tokyo Metro have another poster to educate the masses about correct train behaviour.  Some people take the issue of makeup on the trains very seriously.... Several years back an older woman  chastised  a woman in her twenties for putting on her make up on a Hibiya line platform. She was pushed over and got a couple of broken bones for her trouble.  (I might have been tempted to do the same...)
Lateral thinking is happening on the Saikyo line at Ikebukuro.  An area on the platform where you can kind of discreetly pop in an put on your make up - avoiding the tut tuts of people who obviously have enough time to put their make up on at home.  Hurrah for lateral thinking.  I've yet to see anyone use it though :)
