Japanese gives out cash in PH to make amends for her grandpa’s involvement in WW2

A Japanese woman has a generous yet unusual way of saying sorry to Filipinos for the involvement of her grandfather in World War 2.

She distributed wad of cash that caused a commotion among residents who were at the Cagayan De Oro City market last Tuesday, October 2.

The Japanese woman from Hiroshima, Japan, gave out cash worth up to P50,000 to strangers as a way saying sorry, reported GMA News.

Bystanders at the said market started going after Mariko to get money from her that it has slightly caused a riot, according to the report.

An onlooker named Hasmin decided to interfere and rescue the Japanese woman from the hounding crowd by taking her to her sari-sari store.

Hasmin gave Mariko a cup of instant noodles to fill her stomach, and in return, the latter gave her wads of cash.

According to Police Investigator SPO1 Narciso Suarez, Mariko said that her grandfather was part of the Japanese Imperial Army during World War 2.

The Japanese occupation was a bloody part of Philippine history with military deaths counting up to 57,000, and nearly one million civilian casualties.

Mariko said that her grandfather instructed her, before he passed away, to go to the Philippines and give P1 million of his money as a way to make amends for what happened during the war.

On September 30, Mariko decided to go to the Philippines and do what the latter told her to do.

When she arrived at the airport, she met a woman who told her to go to Cagayan De Oro in Mindanao to fulfill her grandfather’s last wish.
