Hello. I am a half Japanese male, and I have the tremendous opportunity to go to Japan every year. I love this place so much (my family over there lives in Tokyo). Sadly, far too often I see tourists littering all over the streets, usually with a big smirk, feeling superior to their Japanese counterparts. Generally speaking, just due to logistics, the litter doesn’t really get picked up, but rather run over or kicked on. There are certain places where you can be fined greatly for littering, but I feel it has to be more. Japan takes pride in their cleanliness, even in things not having to do with garbage. The streets have no potholes, or those ugly discolored patches we have here in America. I get there are places in America with greater fines than in Japan. I want their to be a couple thousand dollar fine near areas where there are a lot of tourists and a lot of commotion. To find out who does these things, the police will have to rely on security cameras, but also the citizens going along on their work day, who in my experience, have no problem telling (or “snitching”, as some people would say, even though it’s really not) the cops what they found. Please preserve the streets of Tokyo, and Japan in general! Even if nothing happens, please spread the word that Japan is clean and it should be kept that way, especially before the 2020 olympics!
