What to do about local Japanese kids playing on train platform
Every day (Weekday) I see (small) 6yr / 7yr old children playing, and running around the on train platform after school. It feels so dangerous, but none of the train staff or adults say anything. ‬ Can anyone tell me why this is allowed??

    Are the children playing on the train tracks or just the platform? If just the platform and you think playing a bit is dangerous, um...Yeah it's your problem. They generally know their limits. If you see them being outright dangerous, yell at them in English, it'll scare em straight.

    Can you tell which school they attend? People call the school to complain when kids are goofing off.

If you want to be a busy body and tell them it is dangerous and stop running, you can. (eki no ho-mu de hashiranaide-ne. Abunai-yo.) I did when some kids were playing tag inside a seven eleven once

    I always say abuni-yo! I don’t Give AF if the parents are around or not. If some kids running around and plow into me, or goofing off near busy cars etc. they usually listen.
