Apology after Japanese train departs 20 seconds early

BBC:-A rail company in Japan has apologised after one of its trains departed 20 seconds early.

Management on the Tsukuba Express line between Tokyo and the city of Tsukuba say they “sincerely apologise for the inconvenience” caused.

In a statement, the company said the train had been scheduled to leave at 9:44:40 local time but left at 9:44:20.

Many social media users reacted to the company’s apology with surprise.

The mistake happened because staff had not checked the timetable, the company statement said.

“The crew did not sufficiently check the departure time and performed the departure operation,” it said

It added that no customers had complained about the early departure from Minami Nagareyama Station, which is just north of Tokyo.
