The earthquake and tsunami that walloped Japan left much of its coastline ravaged, but left one thing intact: the Japanese reputation for honesty.
The National Police Agency says nearly all the valuables found in the three hardest hit prefectures, have been returned to their owners.
The “high level of ethical awareness” in the Japanese people is matched in their officials, who have spent countless hours tracking down people in shelters and elsewhere to return their valuables.
Japan’s Asahi TV reported about some of the English language media coverage of about Japanese people turning in cash they found in tsunami wreckage.
It’s a weird pattern: the domestic Japanese media was probably first to report about the money, then foreign media picked up the story, and then the Japanese got to pat themselves on the back by mentioning the positive foreign media coverage of the same story.
