Japanese trains are very famous for being very fast and for always being on time!
But this time, The West Japan Railway Company’s apology came after one of its express trains left the platform at Notogawa station in central Japan at 7:11:35 a.m., instead of the scheduled 7:12 a.m., on May 11.
The early departure didn’t affect any other travel schedules that day, but led to one person missing their train.
“We inconvenienced our customers very much, and we will strive to prevent this from occurring again,”
JR West said in a statement quoted by the country’s Asahi newspaper.
