Walk on the Left

Crowds are orderly when walking in Downtown Tokyo. Most will keep to the left of the street just like vehicles. The only time you can go to the opposite side is on an escalator.

Tokyo Residents are Extremely Polite

You will be welcomed everywhere you go, including boutiques, restaurants, and temples. Citizens are impressively polite and always willing to help. When welcomed, no response is necessary. Instead, a friendly bow in response is all you need.

Litter is Not Tolerated

Tokyo’s streets are impressively clean, and you will notice that smoking in non-designated areas is strictly prohibited.

Public Affection is Prohibited

You will see couples walking down the street that do not hold hands or show any affection in public. In Japan, affection is not for public display!
