As a NYer, I'm AMAZED at how clean the streets are! Is this true throughout your travels?Amy
Amy,Tokyo is a pretty clean city. Shopkeepers keep the area around their shops clean and homeowners keep the areas along their walls clean. Most apartment dwellers actually have a rotating schedule of clean-up duty of the grounds. Some neighborhoods have that, too. However, there is sometimes trash on the street. There aren't any garbage cans around and people do toss trash. Mt. Fuji has not been designated a World Heritage site because of the trash that's on it.I have noticed that fallen leaves are left a while. Perhaps it is for us to enjoy them. They fly in traffic!I travelled through Asia many years ago. What I remember most was dust. Not so much garbage tossed around but dust. But that makes beautiful sunsets!
