Japanese Honesty

This unmanned produce stand sits on the side of a busy road about 20km from where I live. The owners keep it stocked with fresh crops and depend on the honesty of passerby's to pay for whatever they take and not steal whatever money has accumulated.

I'm not sure how long this would last in most parts of the world. But bless Japan for it being able to survive here.


  1. There are a few produce stands like this near where I grew up (in the boonies). I'm not too sure how many are left. They are a real treat!

  2. Whoa, just how far outside of Boston were you? :-P
