I’ve always been fascinated by the way Japanese cities are laid out. There’s something about these pictures that makes me want to just wander the streets exploring.
But the one thing I notice, in these pictures and in many others I’ve seen, is the distinct lack of litter. The place looks crowded and kind of chaotic, but I never see trash on the streets. Is there a reason for this?
