Omar Farooq, a Bahraini content creator, shared a video on Instagram of the Japanese spectators cleaning the stadium post-match. While we have witnessed how a stadium looks littered with food packets, plastics, glass and bottles after a match or event, this was a welcome sight. They can be seen carrying large garbage bags to stuff all that they could find in the stands and cleaned up all the unwanted things.

“We never leave, Japanese never leave rubbish behind. We respect the place,” a Japanese woman is heard saying in the video. Another man in the video said that they don’t do it for the cameras.

“They said they weren’t doing it for the cameras, but I’m glad the cameras still spotted them. The values they’re displaying are worthy of a global audience,” Anand Mahindra wrote, sharing the video. While the original video has over 9 million views, the video that the 67-year-old business tycoon shared has over 2 lakh views.
