Campaigns at train stations urge travellers to stop walking
around while using their smartphones after a series of incidents
with people busting into each other and/or into arriving trains in 2013.
According to Japan Today, there were over 120 people injured by
'smartphone walking' in the last four years.

Don’t ‘Smartphone’ and Walk

Not only in Japan has this been a problem. In New York, these guys played a major prank addressing the unattentive smartphone
walkers in their city, helping them cross streets with the guiding
eyes of the 'seeing eye people'.

In Japan, where they have people helping to prevent you from losing your way, tripping or other discomforts, the 'seeing eye people' might be a nice addition.
