This is one sight u will never see in Singapore: In Japan, people actually keep to one side of the escalator. They even queue up to step onto the escalator...
In most parts of Japan, pple keep to the left:
Only in Osaka, pple keep to the right:
BTW, there is no sign around that says "Pls keep the the left/right of the escalator".
People just do it
