#550 "Please do not smoke while walking"

Newer Older

I'm not sure what the situation is in Taitō Ward/City, but, in Chiyoda Ward/City, smoking in the street earns a fine in certain areas—around train stations, for example.

• ポイ捨て(poi-sute) = "toss"
Here, it refers to the time-honored practice of discarding cigarette butts in the street.

    @sthtbs: Here, poking kids in the eye and burning holes in people's clothing are not punishable offences.
