Akabane
How mothers always tell their kids to 'be quiet' is very Tokyo-like ‒ be it at a restaurant or on the train, you'll always hear them saying it. I am always impressed by how people in Tokyo teach their children not to trouble strangers. I think behaviour like this is what lies behind Tokyo's world-renowned politeness and class.
