I see that japanese carriers use 777 and 747.
Over there , people only fly in early morning and late evening ?
Slot constraints ?
I see ANA have some turboprops vut they only use it in regional airports.


Studying hard, for flying right!

They go for a business trip during the day. That's where the demand is. If they want to return mid-day, they can take the train...

Simple answer to your questions is the government didn't build enough runways at Tokyo Haneda, so insteading of increasing frequency the aircraft kept getting bigger and bigger.
Ask anyone in Japan, they would, of course, answer frequency but due to the fixed amount of slots, airlines had to fly bigger metal to move passengers.

In the gate area, I have often overheard comments like "look at the small plane we are going to ride on" - the aircraft in reference was a 767. In a few years, that remark will be made about any narrowbody jet.
