How to say Subway in Japanese
Like other major cities, the subway during peak hours is very busy so try to avoid travelling during rush hours if you can. Don't be alarmed by the platform attendants (also known as "oshiya") who help organize passengers onto the train during these peak hours. They are there to guide passengers into doors with more room but they will also help the doors close if the carriages are overflowing with people!
Here are some phrases you might hear while waiting for your train:
まよって しまい ました、 たすけて くれません か?
Mayotte shimai mashita, tasukete kuremasen ka?
I'm lost, can you help me?
