Why is there left-hand traffic in Japan?

The legend explains this as follows. Japanese samurai in the old days moved along narrow mountain roads with swords on the left side. And in order not to provoke a fight with the samurai moving towards them (and the touch of the sword was quite enough for this), they kept to the left side of the road.

Of course, no one can confirm the authenticity of this legend.But the fact remains that by the time the first Europeans arrived in Japan, the movement of carts and riders on the streets and roads was left-hand.

And in 1872, the country’s first railway was built and introduced in Japan. The tender for construction was won by the British, known “supporters of left-handedness”.

Since then, it has gone: left-hand trams, first horse-drawn, then electric, left-hand water transport. And when the first cars appeared, for the Japanese, who love order in everything, the choice in favor of the left side was almost already made.

As for the reasonable question of why Japan continues to move on the left side and today, when many countries, in the past “left-hand”, for example, Sweden, have long changed the left wheel to the right, remains open. This is probably one of the mysteries of the Japanese soul.
