JR Yamanote Line Gets New Seats
Starting this month, some trains on JR’s Yamanote line are going to have a trial run of a new style of seats:
The new seats are shaped in a way that is supposed to encourage people to sit in a manner that is less annoying to other passengers. It should be harder to spread out one’s legs or sit in the middle of two seats. They’re also supposed to be more comfortable than the old blue seats.
