Train Station: Waiting Room

Most of the train stations on the Keio line are open to the outside. That means the stations are wet and cold when it is rainy and windy. They can also be hot. In recent years, waiting rooms have been built on the platforms. They are heated and air-conditioned. There is now a dry place to wait in the rainy season and a warm place to sit in winter. There is a cool place to wat in the summer.

There are some rules, however. You can tell by the pictures what is prohibited. Notice the sign says "Prohibition" in English.

Why do you think this sign was put here?

The blue sign is pretty low to the ground.
