When I was in Hakone, Japan taking a bus to the open-air sculpture museum, an old man motioned for me to set my bag down in space apparently for items like that. He didn't speak great English but asked me where my bus stop was and if I needed help. I showed him my map on my phone, indicating that it would tell me when to get off.

Since I showed him the map I didn't think he still planned on helping me, but when it came to the stop, he got off with me (even though his stop was the one before mine) and walked a hilly half mile to the museum. He then bought a $1 locker for my bag and motioned for me to sit, which I did. The next thing I know, he is buying me a ticket for the museum, which was around $16 US.

Needless to say, I didn't expect that and thanked him profusely as he walked away, leaving me to my museum visit.

I won't go into the next story, but the very next day near Kamakura I asked a man to take my picture and long story short, he invited me back to a cafe he owned and gave me a free meal and showed me videos and pictures of birds that visited his attic. He was also obsessed with a hummingbird he had witnessed on a trip to the US.

I haven't traveled much, but it's hard to imagine people anywhere else being as nice as in Japan
this my story is about 2 years ago nowadays I am not traveling much.:)
