Ninjo - 人情 - Human Compassion / Feelings.
Love, affection, compassion and sympathy are the most important feelings that all human beings should nurture. In Japanese society (and most others) - this assumption is highlighted in a desire to create cooperation among people.
In daily life, the code of Ninjo binds ones actions towards other. For example- run out of salt while cooking, and you can visit your neighbor to borrow some. The reaction next door should certainly be very cooperative. Likewise in more complicated life’s events, when you receive you should also give. This give and take attitude is based on the belief in the wisdom of mutual reliance. When all is well with you, you are expected to help others and when you are in need of help, you can count on other. This sense of interdependence in the community is what constitutes ninjo.
