I went to Japan last August.
1) you get on at rush hour, Japanese people will not make allowances for you. One time at Shinjuku I had body contact with 5 people it was that many people. When the train turned a bend, you and everyone else would lean/be pushed as one mass of people flesh. Shinjuku alone handles 1.2 million people per day.
2) not much point in waiting for next train, that one will be just as full. Some stations would be that busy for at least an hour in the evening. And the Yamanote line get a train about every 5 mins.
3) yes bo is a danger. Especially as Japanese people don't as a rule, use deodorant. Sometimes it gets pretty bad. If you have ever been in a mosh pit, you can get an idea of what it can be like.
4) Japanese people treat getting that vacant seat like a sport, you have to be quick. Especially against the pushy obasans (they don`t care who they knock out of the way), so yes they will sit next to you if that seat is vacant.

I thought it looked wonderfully efficient o.o, and would feel pretty bad if people ended up late to where they were going just 'cause I showed up on the train and they wouldn`t do this anymore >>.

Why does it have to have anything to do with a lack of patience? That's only looking at it from one angle. I saw it as a more time and energy efficient way of traveling. It`s not inhumane, because no one`s dying or in trouble, and the people are obviously willing to do it, or else they WOULD wait for the next train.
