Public drunkenness is not considered a shame in Japan and is viewed with indulgence. Every day thousands of drunken office workers, mostly males, can be seen slumped in the carriages of subway trains or on station platforms. Some of them may even be lying in pools of their own vomit.
Station staff patiently attempt to waken the sleeping drunks and even use wheelchairs to transport them to waiting taxis outside the station.
