Bachi is considered as "divine punishment" or "supernatural retribution" that results from one's bad actions. Depending on the situation, the Japanese display a sense of restraint in their behavior for a fear of Bachi. The most well-known example of this is how Japanese spectators will pick up their garbage and take it home with them after a soccer match. Take a deep yet comic look at the Japanese perception of religion and how it influences their actions and thoughts in everyday life.
