They occupy trains and stations. How many characters can you find? 

Japan is the land of Manga. You will see characters everywhere.

Let's get on a train...

The sign reminds you not to get your hand caught in a door.

And you see a character on it. 

Have you noticed that every train system has its own character for the notice?

The characters from a popular children's book, a lovely bear, personalised trains and a weird-looking (sorry!) panda... 
I find myself looking forward to capturing a new character as I get on the train.

Tokyo boasts of an extensive rail network with more than 60 lines!

Use trains and subways to discover Tokyo, and find your favourite character. 

This last one also shows our love for characters: personalised animals to remind you to refrain from walking on escalators to prevent accidents.

Don't get too attracted to the poster. Watch your step!
