Elevator Manners

No jumping in the elevator please

It is always good to see workers of large corporations taking the initiative themselves. It looks like at Shibuya station, they decided there was a need for a sign in the elevator and they had to make one themselves.

Although it looks hand made it is great to see the art work that has gone into this poster and the way it has been properly font colored, emphasized and then laminated. It is nice to see that even though this looks like a one off poster it was done right.

The poster says, “Be careful. If you jumped around you will get stuck in the elevator, please take care.”

You can find the poster in the elevator at Shibuya station on the Yamanote line, for trains headed towards Shinjuku. The elevator is at the rear of the train towards Route 246.

  • Man I don't know why anyone would want to jump in one anyways. I would truely be afraid something like you get high up, then some prankster would start jumping and it would start falling back down fast and crash, Ouch- Ouch :(. Or it would stop working and then no one would be able to know if you were trapped or not if the communication system failled. Are there telephones o your elevators to call for help? Well with cell phones you could always call for help if the electricity went wonkers. I've always had a fear that something like that would happen. Has anything like that ever happened to you before?

    • I have never been stuck in an elevator, but my car got stuck in an elevator car park lift once. Apparently a 4WD had rolled over at the top and jammed the whole thing up. Lucky it didn't fall all the way to the bottom. Took them 3 days to get all the cars out and sorted again.

  • The exact same sign is in the elevator at Nippori station (Yamanote line, direction Shinjuku/Ikebukuro). I thought that one was hand-made, too, until I read this 🙂

    • That sure is interesting. You can even see where they have stuck on the yellow attention sticker. Maybe they designed it to look like it was hand made so people would pay more attention?
