  • Let's find out if Japanese people are honest.


  • As many of you know, I've been living in Japan for quite some time.


  • And one of the things that people often ask me is, why do I live in Japan?


  • And aside from food, one of the things that I deeply appreciate is how safe Japan is, and how generally honest people are.


  • But it's hard to explain without showing you, so I wanted to make this fun little video.


  • Let me just say though that these are one off examples.


  • Not every single experience is going to be like this and most importantly, this is simply just for entertainment purposes.


  • Don't try some of these things yourself and expect the same results.


  • And like always, if you want to see what I'm doing on the daily, check out my Instagram account.

  • All right, let's see how honest Japanese people are.




  • So I'm here in one of the busiest places in Tokyo: Shibuya scramble crossing, and I wanted to show you what happens when you drop your wallet.


  • So I got mine right here.


  • So here's the setup at the crossing and here's my super duper bright green wallet.


  • And to make it interesting, here's the Japanese $100 equivalent: 10,000 yen going inside.

    為了增加趣味性,我還在裡面放了在日本相當於 100 美元的 10000 日元大鈔進去。

  • We'll be zooming into this area and here we go with the first attempt.


  • Boom, the fumbled wallet drop! Japanese person quickly spots it and goes after me for the return.


  • And there you go, life back to normal.


  • All right, that was easy.


  • So I just dropped my wallet back and the 10,000 yen is still here.

    我剛剛弄丟了錢包,拿回來之後,10000 日元大鈔還在裡面。



  • So this one is quite interesting. What you'll find in Tokyo and many parts of Japan is that a lot of people will take their belongings and use it to hold their seats, sometimes even using their valuables.


  • So today I've got my iPhone and MacBook to hold my seat.

    所以今天我拿了我的 iPhone 和 MacBook 來佔位。

  • Let's see what happens.


  • So here we go, iPhone and MacBook on the table for everyone to see. easily worth over $1,000.

    開始了,我直接把 iPhone 和 MacBook 擺在桌子上讓大家看,總價值輕輕鬆鬆超過 1000 美元。

  • Initial setup complete. Now let's go get my drink.


  • Nice! Looks like it's still here after a few minutes.


  • I'll have a quick drink, open up my laptop so it's even more visible.


  • Now let's try a little bit longer.


  • Speed up the time.


  • Valuables and drink holding steady!


  • While we're waiting for someone to steal my computer, I wanted to mention --during the wallet drop-- in 2019 in Tokyo alone, there are about 4.5 million items turned into the lost and found.

    再等待有人來偷走我的電腦的同事,讓我趁機提一下我原本想在弄丟錢包環節那邊想提的知識。在 2019 年,光是東京就有大約 450 萬件物品被送到失物招領處。

  • While only one million people reported that they lost an item, meaning there's a lot of honest people in Tokyo as well as a lot of unclaimed items sitting in the lost and found.

    而僅有 100 萬人向失物招領處表示自己有東西遺失。這代表東京充滿了誠實的人們,還有一堆被放置在失物招領處,無人問津的各種物品。

  • Oh and in Japan, If someone turns in money to the police, the person by law has a right to demand 5 to 20% of the money from the owner whose money was returned, but apparently almost no one ever claims it.

    另外,在日本如果有人把錢交給警察,根據法律,該人有權向錢被原失主索要 5-20% 的獎金,但顯然幾乎沒有人這麼做過。

  • That's honesty without reward.


  • Anyway, time to get back to my seat.


  • And there you go! Just under 18 minutes and my valuables are still there.

    你看看!過了快 18 分鐘,我的貴重物品還在原本的位置上。

  • That's a relief!


  • Onto the next example.




  • Have you ever wondered what it would be like to leave your bike unlocked in the middle of the city?


  • Let's go find out.


  • So here's the setup: plenty of bikes parked on the side of the street, all locked up, and this is your standard busy street in Tokyo during the middle of the day.


  • And look, there's even a locked bike parked at the railing.


  • Okay, here we go! Park my bike like this.


  • I'll leave the bike lock on the basket so it's obvious that the bike is unlocked, and now let's see what happens.


  • Fast forward a bit.


  • Looks like no one's interested at all.


  • Maybe should have had a more expensive bike.


  • While we wait for a thief, let me share some information with you.


  • In 2020, Japan had a 20,797 stolen bikes reported.

    在 2020 年,全日本共有 20797 輛腳踏車被偷的案件。

  • While in Tokyo alone there were 31,937 bike stolen, making it the number one reported crime in Japan year over year.

    而僅在東京就有 31937 輛腳踏車被偷,使其成為日本每年報案數最高的犯罪。

  • Unfortunately, the police were only able to catch 7.9% of the thieves, so I'm hoping today I don't become part of that statistic.

    不幸的是,警方只抓到了 7.9% 的竊賊。所以我希望我今天不會成為這個統計數字的一部分。

  • Oh well there you go, more than 16 minutes later and the bike is still here.

    好的,超過 16 分鐘過去了,腳踏車還在原位上。

  • Could have done the test for a little bit longer, but I think you get the point.


  • So I wanted to take a quick fried chicken break, and give a shout out to our sponsor for this video: the Squarespace.

    所以我想吃口炸雞休息一下,並向這個影片的贊助商:Squarespace 表示感謝。

  • So just in the middle of the city, the honor system is still alive and well. Let me just show you around this corner.


  • So just right here as you can see they have farm fresh vegetables, and there's no one here attending this place. Basically you have to pay on the honor system.


  • Looks like 1, 5 and 10 yen coins are not accepted here, but at least they've got some fresh vegetables at the stand.

    看來這裡不收 1、5 和 10 日元的硬幣,但至少他們在攤位上有一些新鮮的蔬菜。

  • Let me show you how it all works.


  • Select five veggie, bust out a coin, and deposit my money.


  • There you go. It's as easy as that.




  • So I've saved the best for last. This is one of my favorite spots that I just recently discovered.


  • It's a 24 hour self-service and beer shop in Ebisu that serves beer on draft.

    這是一家位於惠比壽的 24 小時自助服務啤酒吧,提供現倒生啤酒。

  • Let me show you.


  • So they do have food and merch, but we're here for the beer.


  • Luckily, they accept all sorts of payment types.


  • Grab a cup.


  • I can use QR code, or just pay with a credit card.

    我可以掃 QR 碼,或是直接拿信用卡付款。

  • So I got my cup, time to pour the beer!


  • Now, pour an honest beer.


  • How many of you could do this at 2 a.m. in the morning!


  • There you go! I've just poured the perfect beer and like I said earlier, the best part about this place is that it's 24/7.

    就是這樣!我剛剛倒出了完美的啤酒。就像我之前說的,這家店最讚的地方是他 24 小時全年無休。

  • So you can come here at 2 a.m. In the morning, 3 a.m... You can come here whatever time you want, and they have a draft beer ready to go and it's all on the honor system.

    所以你可以凌晨兩三點來... 你可以在任何時候過來,隨時享用生啤酒,而且一切都以誠實商店的方式運作。

  • How awesome is that?


  • So what did you think of these examples? How does it compare to your country?


  • Again, these examples were just for fun, and to be completely honest, I have had my bike stolen here a long, long time ago.


  • I left it unlocked at my Shibuya apartment parking garage, and over the night, it was stolen!


  • So always use your best judgment before you decide to do something like leave your valuables unattended at a table.


  • At the same time, I personally dropped my wallet on the street or left it on the train, and it has been returned to me so, go figure.


  • So I hope you enjoyed this video.
