I usually sleep for five hours at home but I will be very sleepy if I can’t sleep more than six hours.
So I usually sleep in the train because I’m on it for an hour.
You may think that it’s dangerous for me because someone might steal my wallet or something.
However, more than half of the people riding on the train try to sleep.
One of the reason is that it’s safe on the train in the daytime.
I sometimes see on TV that a drunk got his wallet stolen by pickpockets on the train late at night, but I think that this is rare.
Second reason is that most of the people including me need to commute for a long time.
It can’t be helped There aren’t any jobs outside of the city. Working from home is just a pipe dream.
Japanese business customs are old-fashioned.
Third reason is that Japanese want to use their time as efficiently as possible regardless of whether it is really useful or not.
These are the reasons that I sleep on a hard chair. I wish that there were beds on the train.
