One thing that the Japanese are is punctual.  There is no early or late just "on time".  The transit is ridiculously reliable.  For instance, remember that Shinkansen train that I was blogging about?  Well, it is reported that the average arrival time is within 6 seconds of scheduled arrival.  When the train says that it departs at 1:48 it departs at exactly 1:48.   I love it!   I am definitely and "early" person so having such a punctual culture works for me.
