Default Blower runs when turning off engine

When I turn off car, periodically the air blower turns on and runs for a period - over a minute and am not sure why

Is this normal or have I got something turned on that I should not. My car is a Japanese import so instructions on viewer panel in Japanese

That seems normal to me. There is a thermistor on the radiator. When the temp exceeds a certain point the fan runs. When you stop a car the temp goes up because there is no air flowing through the radiator. After 15 minutes or so everything should be quiet.
