Their are many things that can be learned from Japan. The top two things are Cleanliness and Punctuality. In Japan, every section of the society strives for keeping the surrounding clean. There is a special word in Japanese Osouji, which means mega cleaning. Osouji is a tradition in Japan that has been going for more than 300 years. Osouji isfollowed in Japan right from the first standard in school. Everyday before leaving the school, all the students clean their classrooms.When students clean their school, they understand the importance the cleanliness and avoid making the place dirty.It is obviously expected that these students would make a Clean Society.In Japanese society, people are very much volunteer in cleaning their town, because of the clean environment there are no contagious, mosquito born viral diseases such as Malaria, Dengue,Chikun Gunia in Japan.
