A rugby scrum of four British tourists trying to purchase shinkansen tickets has completely overwhelmed a JR Ticket Office guy.

Bystanders overheard major confusion after the JR Ticket Office guy asked the tourists, “What time would you like to depart, sir?”

“Oh, in the morning please,” replied Barry.

“Morning? What time?” asked the JR Ticket guy.

“Anytime in the morning,” said Barry.

“7 a.m. sir?” asked the JR Ticket guy.

“Nah, that’s way too early mate, how about midday thanks?” replied Barry.


At press time, the interaction is still playing out.
