Japan’s Polite Construction Workers

Here’s another “slice of life” video clip shot in Japan. Walking down the mountain from my in-laws home into the town of Atami, we encountered some polite and respectful construction workers. Noteworthy points:

  • They all bowed their heads and greeted us with “ohayo gozaimasu” (Good morning!)
  • They expressed concern for our safety (“Watch where you’re walking and be careful!”)
  • They warned us when cars approached from the rear
  • They even had a matt placed on the road to designate the entrance to the construction area!

All that and some nice shots looking down into Atami City.
