Train travel

Would you offer your seat to a pregnant person or if they're holding a baby? I'm surprised that I've come across both situation on the train in Japan and no one offered their seat so I did, because people in Australia, where I'm from would do that 90% of the time. Also if I put myself in their shoes, being pregnant or holding a baby, I would really appreciate people offering their seat. What do you think? What's it like in your neck of the woods?

I guess many people think that they don't need to offer their seat because there are seats reserved for pregnant or handicapped people. So if the pregnant person happened to board on the wrong part of the train (not where the reserved seats are), then too bad.

I would give my seat to any sick or old person regarless of age and gender. Giving seat to a pregnant woman goes without saying.

I would. But I can imagine kids these days spending more time on their phone, not present at all in their surroundings. That, plus not being taught manners and kindness.
