The culture deep-rooted in respect and kindness for others often leaves the internet mighty impressed. One such instance that’s now going viral on social media, is a short clip of a Japanese railway official helping an elderly person to get off a metro train.

The bystanders also help and contribute by patiently letting the elderly person first get off the train before they enter or exit the public transport. Watch the viral clip here:
