Awesome, this is Japanese “Omotenashi” it’s means Japanese hospitality 😊🇯🇵👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 ボランティアの皆様、素敵なおもてなしありがとうございます😊 日本人として誇りに思います😊👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 暑い中ボランティア頑張って下さい😊👍🏻 Japanese people are some of the most thoughtful, considerate and kind human beings. I seriously love Japanese culture. Those “volunteers” are just unpaid workers.

Sorry, I know thing are rough & have been but these games shouldn’t have taken place now. We are killing our selves. I love the Olympics, Japan is a beautiful place but at this moment in time just isn’t right. Omotenashi I love their hospitality and their aesthetics— their culture is so lovely and admirable. 🥰

If only there was a way to have prevented this from happening... ❤️❤️❤️
