The Japanese are very organized and conduct themselves in an orderly manner especially in public. Their adherence to forming lines are ingrained at an early age as this shows cooperation, self-discipline, and respect. This applies to single-file lines to anything that people need to line up for, such as bus stops, vending machines, convenience stores, elevators, and especially in the train platforms. Even in the face of disaster, such as lining up for relief goods, expect that everyone will dutifully line up. So be patient and don’t skip the line regardless how long you think it may be as you will be surprised at the efficiency of their system and how fast those lines move along.
