Tokyo Good Museum
Queuing in an orderly manner when boarding a train.
Not getting into a public bath without washing your body beforehand.
Keeping city streets clean and free of litter.
Partially folding one’s umbrella when moving through a crowd on a rainy day.
These are all examples of Good Tokyo Manners,
a way to show consideration for the feelings and needs of others.
Most people do these things out of habit, without even thinking.
They are some of the things that make Tokyo so unique.
We want Tokyoites to take pride in their good manners.
And we want visitors to appreciate the culture from which those manners are born.
That’s what Tokyo Good Museum is all about.
It’s a museum without walls, a living showcase of the
good manners that make this city such a special place.
