Their national team may have lost their World Cup game against Ivory Coast, but Japanese fans didn’t forget their manners, it would seem.
Cleaning up after themselves is one of the things Japanese people do best. During hanami season, for example, thousands of people descend on public parks to eat, drink and have fun. Rarely are dedicated refuse buns provided for revellers to use, but equally rare is it to find any mess left behind at the end of the day since people also taking along rubbish bags to carry their waste home in.
It would seem that fans of Japan’s national football team have remembered their manners despite being thousands of miles from home, as this same hanami spirit was seen at the World Cup stadium in Brazil.
Shared by Twitter user World Cup Problems, these photos of Japanese fans cleaning up after themselves have since gone viral, with people all over the world applauding them for their behavior.
We’re sure there were plenty of Ivory Coast supporters who were just as considerate and ensured that they left their section of the stadium as clean as they found it, but these Japanese fans really are an example to us all. Wouldn’t it be great it every fan – regardless of whether their team wins or loses – took the time to clean up after themselves when the game is over?
