Don`t say master in the same sentence as Japan unless its a monk or some sort of martial artist master. You got my hopes high and then dashed them to find out its just a regular guy. Awesome story though.

Japan has little poverty because the decided not to count them.

But in other ways you are right. Great infrastructure.
At least, it used to be. Not so much now.

I am so proud and motivated by the behavior of the Japanese during this crisis. It is so amazing that a society can be so utterly selfless and giving like this. Student_Law you really summed up their culture quite well. My roommate said pretty much the same thing about why the Japanese aren`t stealing and stuff. She`s been really proud to be Japanese as of late. I am still extremely worried about the nuclear reactors though and her family in Japan...

The prices on the vending machines have been lowered, reports say. Business owners in Japan have lowered their prices, and some give away food.

The "barbaric" behaviour isn`t like other places, but this is not solely because of the fact that Japan is a country with a fantastic infrastructure and little crime and powerty. If the same happened in Sweden, Denmark or Norway there would still be looting and violence. In Japan however, there is a culture for a certain un- selfishness and "collective mind". Anyone who has even the slightest knowledge of Japanese culture would be able to understand this.

@ JKolodne, or should I say "@ Spelling Nazi",
verklempt is correct. According to Urban Dictionary
"Verklempt - choked with emotion (German verklemmt = emotionally inhibited in a convulsive way)"

But let me add this...

<i>What a silly comparison. The people of Katrina sat on their roofs for four days as their government twiddled their thumbs about what to do to help. Japans disaster doesn`t even compare. There`s no looting because everything was destroyed and I doubt people who are picking up the scraps are being considered looters. Unlike here the police in Japan don`t seem to shoot first and ask questions later.</i>
----------------------------

So you`re saying that it`s a silly comparison because in Japan, the government is acting as it should after a disaster unlike america and that the police in Japan aren`t arseholes shooting everybody and then asking the questions. That totally didn`t prove his point of the Japanese not acting like the Americans after katrina....

Makes me think of all the vending machines that you find on japanese street corners, selling sweet cold coffee drinks and the like. In two weeks I never saw a vandalised one.

Over here (UK) they would be covered in cr*p grafitti and smashed in seconds.

Over there they were immaculate, presumably right up to the point the tsunami picked them up and smashed them to smithereens.

The differences between the actions of the general population of those affected by Katrina and those affected by this earthquake prove that "western civilization" isn`t civilized.

CrackJack: agreed. A Norwegian anthropologist who specializes in Japanese culture said the excact same thing, and also compared with Katrina and the tsunami in South East Asia a few years ago, and Haiti and Chile.

In most hunger disaters in the world, there becomes a power struggle that always result in the men taking the food, women might get some and the weakest, the children die first. However, in Japan there was a hunger disater in 1792-93. There is no documentation that there was any physical or violent conflicts over food in Japan during the hunger - like you see in African countries. And in Japan the men died from starvation first. Children died last. Quite unique, and it is ironic that we in the western world have been preaching ethichs for more than a thousand years, while the Japanese actually have been practising it...

Despite all the crap IAB has given Japan over the years, The Japanese people aren`t looting, aren`t rioting, and aren`t acting like people did here after Katrina. They are being patient, helpful, generous, sharing, and compassionate.

WTG Japan, I salute the civility of your society.

This is nothing like Katrina. If you`re comparing it to that, then you`ve probably missed the second biggest nuclear accident to date, not to mention the earthquake and the tsunami combined badly affected the lives of millions.

It became clear to me when I looked at some before and after pictures. Satellite images, presumably.

On one of them there was a residential area in a town. Usual residential area in a densely populated place - streets of fairly small houses with small gardens. In the `after` photo there was 1 house near the middle and a lot of dirty area. Somehow that one house made it worse.
