Japanese football fans cleaned up their rubbish before leaving a World Cup match!


The Japanese are known for their strict adherence to certain rules of behavior. They are very respectful towards their seniors, they always have the most amazing technology, and are very particular about cleanliness!

Tuesday, June 19, 2018 was a big day for Japanese football fans. The supporters of Samurai Blue (nickname for the Japanese Men’s Football Team) celebrated wildly as their team beat Colombia 2-1 in the FIFA World Cup Football tournament. And then look what they did when it was all over. They pulled out garbage bags and cleaned up all the waste in the stands before they left the stadium. Fans from Colombia and Senegal did so too!

How’s that for etiquette?! Apparently, it is just a way of life for these fans. They are taught to clean up after themselves while growing up. Keeping things clean (including public spaces) then becomes a way of life for them. BRAVO! We have so much to learn from this!
