Agree that more compassion all the way around would help. Yes, compassion to the mentally ill guy but far moreso to the victims, one whom he killed and others injured. And now to all of us who will be thinking twice about any odd behavior on trains whenever we get on them. One thing though, especially as more tourists come here: announcements should be in at least a couple more languages, and they should probably consider actually saying something. Even if these announcements were in English, it would probably just get non-Japanese upset....especially with more news coming from outside the train. Imagine that!

@Tessa, no, announcements (the few that were made) were all in Japanese. Most were along the lines of "more information will be given when known...." But everyone has smart phones, and at one point a passenger turned his internet radio on with some volume so everyone knew what was going on....but reacting in the wonderfully (in this case) stoic Japanese manner. You could not even tell something was amiss. Just patiently, almost silently waiting for things to resume to normal. (At least that was in Cars 6, 7, and 8.)

I was on that train, Car 6. The strange thing was that we all learned what was going on through Yahoo News, not by train announcements---that just said there was smoke detected, please don't use the toilets, etc......

Kong is a great interviewer, and it was cool to be at one of the first places we ever played. Thank you for a great time, Kong and Traci!
