As the aftermath of Japan's Tsunami gets cleaned up, the people of Japan are unearthing from the rubble as well as plucking the beaches with washed up items, thousands of wallets and safes that contain an astronomical amount of money. This is the part that makes the people of Japan Aliens, the returned the items to the authorities to return to the rightful owners if possible.
DID YOU HEAR THAT!?!?!?!? NO LOOTING!!! NO STEALING!!! and mostly.. NO FINDERS KEEPERS LOOSERS WEEPERS!
I think the people of Japan hail from the planet "Decorumious Planetis". You certainly don't hear stories like this everyday and this restores my faith in humanity if its possible.
My previous post had me wanting to move to a beautiful tropical shoreline, and now I want to move to Japan to receive the American exorcism.
"While looting often becomes an issue post-disaster, it's been the exact opposite case in Japan.
Since the March earthquake and tsunami that leveled much of Japan, thousands of wallets containing a total of $48 million in cash have washed ashore -- and been turned in, ABC reports. In addition, 5,700 safes containing $30 million in cash also have turned up.
Ryuji Ito, professor emeritus at Japan's Yokohama City University, tells the Daily Mail that these acts of integrity are simply reflective of the culture:
"...The fact that a hefty 2.3 billion yen in cash has been returned to its owners shows the high level of ethical awareness in the Japanese people."
