Then what happens if the restaurant is full ah? I see can only see like 10 people.

I stayed at a hotel and below is a small ramen stall like what you guys said with a vending machine but never got to try it as we are usually outside during lunch and at checkout day wanted to try but is full yet I see japanese people queuing inside to pass the "ticket" to the counter. Do they wait till someone leave then process your order?

If so that means that I cannot take my own sweet time to eat, chit chat after eating ?

You have to gauge if you can chit chat or just eat and go. Just observe how many seats are available and if new customers are coming in or not. All on your personal auto-mode. Universal approach in fact.

in a nut shell, there are eateries, family diners and restaurants

Anything less than 20 seats, eat n run. U can go elsewhere to relax and have a nice drink. In fact you should, these places normally not that comfortable to begin with

There are tons of cafes around inside shopping or on the street for you to sit and relax. Just buy a hot coffee and you can relax.

Those small restaurants don't serve dessert and hot drinks other than tea anyway.

Also a little difficult to chit chat when all the seats are counter seats.

Typically Ramen joints are eat and go. eat fast also. Not like what we see in Singapore where Ramen become fine dining where people can spend 1 hour slowly eating. I think in Japan speed is around 15 mins. Many people also queuing outside so better to finish fast.

Got two different treatment. First one is only pass the ticket once u got a seat. Another one i experience before is queuing that time already pass the ticket so the chef can prepare the noodle etc etc. Some noodle take around 15mins to prepare.

You can take your own sweet time to eat, but if you see long queue outside, you oso will be pai seh if they already clear away your bowl and you are left with just a glass of water right?

I took my time to eat because I got digestion issues, not supposed to eat fast. But once I finished I'll just go, especially if I can see long queue outside. At ichiran cannot see queue outside, but I already know got long queue coz the queue was damn long behind me when I was queuing, never ending one lol.

Its just basic courtesy to leave after eating if you know got long queue la, no matter at what joints. Those atas fine dining require prior reservations anyway, those you can just sit as long as you want. No one will rush you in that case.

It's probably cheap and a chance to experience a truer local culture. Some travellers prefer to stay where the local life is more obvious, versus in the busy tourist oriented districts. And for all we know, many of those AirBNB bookings may be by local Japanese tourists anyway.
