Do Japanese people love lines?

Lines are the bane of most people’s existence.
You try to avoid lines until you travel Asia and realize that lines are preferable to the alternative: mobs of people pushing. In Japan, lines have come to mean something almost positive. Lines mean that there is something worth waiting for and that at the end of every line there is a definite pay-off.
Try going to any restaurant that was ranked #1 in something in recent history and you will encounter a line. To some people lines are almost something festive.
People with a common goal are all banding together for the same experience.
When it’s phrased like that, it starts to feel more like a noble endeavor, right?
