At the start of the bus trip to and from Narita comes a softly spoken recorded female voice advising travellers in perfect English english that

"portable telephones should not be used as they annoy the neighbours".

It says so much about Japanese style and respect. The other very noticeable and not unrelated characteristic is patience and its acknowledgement. "Thank you for waiting" invariably precedes even the promptest service.
