A humorous moment tweeted by someone who went to the Prime Minister's Official Residence on June 15 evening to join the protest against Ooi Nuke Plant restart, but didn't know where exactly the action was. He was helped by a young, very polite policeman:
I was looking for the meeting place for the protest but couldn't find it. A young policeman came up to me and asked "Are you alright? Can I help you in any way?" (He was clearly a policeman guarding the Official Residence.) So I asked him, "Do you know where the action is, in front of the PM Official Residence?" He kindly told me, "Oh, that. Please go around to the other side." (LOL)
Policemen in Japan have always been there, on the street corners and in the neighborhood, helping out people, keeping order, giving directions. It's good to know that is still the case.
