Rechts Stehen, Links Gehen! (Stand on the Right, Go on the Left)

This rule, of German origin and one I like to yell loudly at my parents when they're being unruly on the escalators, is in full effect in Japan and makes for some very orderly promenading in the Tokyo Station area.

In Shibuya, however, all bets are off.

In other news, in Japan Richard Gere is the spokesman for Dandy House and I have photographic evidence of this.

you know what else works? "TURN TO THE RIGHT!" barked out in holly hunter's cop voice from 'raising arizona, and "EVERYBODY MOOOOOVE!" bellowed out in andre the giant's fezzik voice from 'princess bride.'
