The bowing phenomena

So there is a LOT of bowing in Japan. People bow whilst they're on the phone, in their cars, on their bikes, and whilst walking.

Today was the first time though that I have been to a sporting event - a Junior High basketball tournament and before and after each game the whole team (all the subs etc) come and stand on the court and bow to the scorer, to the umpires, the timekeeper, each other and the crowd at each end of the court!
