The Japanese respect social order. It is well understood in Japan that one should line up when you are getting on the train. And we give priority to those who are exiting over those who are boarding. After the people who are getting off have finished exiting the train, the people who are getting on can proceed with boarding. This is the most efficient and fastest way. As a result, the reliable timetable of Japanese trains does not get affected. I think this cultural practice is good.
Yes indeed. Japanese train schedules are wonderfully reliable. While "getting on" and "getting off" are perfectly good words, in order to avoid repetition, I also used the synonyms "boarding" and "exiting".
