I heard there is an expression in Japanese for when two people agree to meet at a certain time, but both arrive at the meeting point much earlier.

In that situation, when the two people see each other, the meeting gets effectively moved up with respect to the appointed time.

How would you describe such situation and is there indeed a set phrase? I couldn’t find one in the dictionaries.
