A carriage has surmised that a noisy foreigner in the train is more than likely from the United States of America.

“I don’t want to be racist or anything but that white person talking loudly on the phone is probably American,” said 40-year-old housewife Kumiko Taguchi.

The man could be heard talking on the phone from at least two carriages away.

“It’s amazing how so much noise can be generated from a single larynx,” said Taguchi.

The man was actually not from the United States of America, he was from “California”.
