The video has amassed more than 8 million views on Twitter. Social media users were left impressed with the gesture and were in awe of the Japanese values and culture. A user wrote, "Japan fans are so courteous that their public street celebrations after beating Germany are only conducted when the traffic lights are red."
Another user wrote, "Many years ago I was living/working in Tokyo. I saw about 100 bikes parked in a rack. I asked my interpreter why the bikes had no locks. She didn't understand the concept. I explained theft, she said, "no one would do that"."
The third user wrote, "Looks like a vibe!!! I have to get to that country one day."
Meanwhile, the Japanese team won the hearts of social media users again with their incredible gesture. Instead of revelling in the victory, they cleaned their locker room and left it spotless after beating Germany.
The picture shows towels, water bottles, and left food containers arranged neatly on the counter in the centre of the room. Not only that, the Japanese team even left a note that said "thank you" in Japanese and Arabic - with some folded paper cranes for good measure.
