Apology Issued for Train in Japan Leaving 25 Seconds Early

By Zack Stieber

A Japanese Railway Company has apologized after a train left 25 seconds before it was scheduled to depart.

The early departure caused one person to miss the train, reported Business Insider.

The apology came from the West Japan Railway Company. One of the company’s express trains left Notogawa station at 7:11:35 a.m., instead of the scheduled 7:12 a.m., on May 11.

Japan often prides itself on punctuality, and a number of commuters are used to planning their schedules by arriving at the train platform just as their train pulls up and opens its doors.

A similar incident happened in November 2017, with management at the Tokyo-area Tsukuba Express line apologizing for a train leaving 20 seconds early.
