Occasionally, the train gets delayed due to a suicide (people actually jumping off the platform to the rail track). I was quite surprised how frequently that kind of stuff happens in Tokyo.
I guess people are not satisfied with their own life in general. Today’s news made me wrote about this as well.
Apparently, roughly 60% of Japanese mothers are stressed out. That ranks first place compared to other four biggest cities in Asia. If this is a serious issue (which I think it is), I suggest people find some hobbies, make friends, go date, meet people, and have a fun time for them selves.
It is really a big turn off when you happen to be in a train that just ran over someone. It make your day feel pretty bad…
