Are the Japanese as honest as many people have claimed?

I don’t understand this. I am not one to judge anyone, but culturally, the japanese culture is very dishonest and deceptive. In fact, they hugely value deception, specifically the ability to feign contentment and low emotional energy in a situation where they are anything but content.
They also value ‘talking behind someone\'s back’ as being a better solution to dealing with a problem.

No they’re not.
I lived there because my dad worked as a diplomat there and we had a group of four Japanese men trying to break into our home, fortunately we caught them!
Japan hides this from foreigners portraying an image of order and civil behavior.
I am not saying Japan is dangerous, it’s not…. but mugging, stabbings, fights, rapes, occur more than people imagine.
There are a lot of crazy people, in Osaka I witnessed the near stabbing of a guy, the stabbing guy was a crazy dude in the train station with a knife. (Stuff like that happens)
With the economy getting sour, things are getting worse. Though not as bad as other places but Japan is FAR from what people believe.
