Over 800 Japanese Apple fans lined for days to be the first to purchase the new iPhone 5 which was released on Friday.

Some camped out in front of the Apple store in downtown Tokyo.

Hundreds of people lined up outside Softbank Mobile Corp. stores, KDDI Corp. (9433) outlets and electronics retailers on Friday morning to buy Apple Inc.’s new iPhone 5 smartphone, which went on sale at 8 a.m.

At the Apple store in Ginza, approximately 700 people lined up at 7 a.m. to buy the iPhone 5.

More than 260 people waited for Softbank’s flagship store in Tokyo’s Ginza district to open on Friday morning so they could pick up their pre-ordered iPhone 5s. KDDI, meanwhile, held an event at its showroom in Tokyo’s Harajuku district. The two carriers both said that the number of pre-orders they received exceeded their expectations.

Apple did not accept any advance orders. At the Apple store in Ginza, approximately 700 people lined up at 7 a.m. to buy the iPhone 5. One man in his 40s said he had been waiting outside the store since Thursday morning.
