Did my ears deceive me?

Travelling up the final escalator at Piccadilly Circus today I heard a loud announcement over the tannoy with a woman speaking in what sounded like Japanese. When I came out thorugh the barriers, I expected to see London Underground staff creasing themselves in laughter as they'd played some vast late (or early) April Fool's Joke. But nothing, the all looked as bored, disinterested and miserable as usual. So perhaps this Japanese woman is a permanent fixture. Strangely there was no English translation as I'd love to know what she was asking us to do.
