You will notice that people drive on the left side of the road or highway in Japan and this applies to pedestrian walkways as well so when you’re strolling leisurely and taking the sights in, don’t cause unnecessary delays for others by walking on the right side. Pathways or pavements will be usually marked to indicate where people should walk so be mindful of this. Remember that the Japanese don’t like getting late and having people causing delays on their schedule is not appreciated. However, on escalators, the left side is used for standing while the other side is used for those who are in a rush. You run the risk of getting shoved or bumped by people hurrying if you stand on the right.
