Japan Rail East has announced it will be introducing foreigner-only carriages to busy train routes in central Tokyo in preparation for the 2020 Olympics.
Foreigner-only carriages will be attached to the back of trains during morning peak times to reduce expected inconveniences due to an influx of gaijin.
“The carriages have been primarily designed to ease the congestion of overbearing loud noises,” says JR East President Yuji Fukasawa.
Tourists wearing a fanny pack will be asked to avoid travelling during peak hour times.
“No one wants to see a fanny pack that early in the morning,” Fukasawa said in an official statement.
Tokyo residents have been advised not to enter foreigner-only carriages with some commuters in Osaka, where gaijin-only carriages were introduced in 2016, have been experiencing urges “to blow their nose” and “request items that are not on a menu”.
