In this pucture, what is the function of the white lines painted across the runway? Is it the target touchdown point for aircraft coming in from the other direction? Just a Japan thing? Thanks in advance.

Its a crosswalk for the chicken that wanted to get across the runway.

These are known as 'piano keys' and mark the touchdown point.
