Discarded. Imagine Japan as a clean place? Well, the public transportation system and the city streets are extremely clean, almost sanitary. There is no rubbish on the streets or trains, but in the parks, forests and waterways it is a different story.
Walk into the forest and before long you’ll come across garbage and dumped cars/bikes. Walk along through the rice fields and you’ll notice all manner of rubbish along the paths and fields. Most ends up in the waterways and then gets washed out to sea.
