Discarded. Stuff simply dumped by the road.
I came across this motorbike leaking petrol and oil into a major river that flows through the mountains in Isehara today. This is a pretty common sight. I’ve seen cars, trucks, scooters, motorbikes, household appliances, and even an ultralight plane dumped in the rivers and forests.
A large pile of drink cans dumped right beside the Sagami River which leads to the Pacific Ocean.
And you thought the Japanese cared about nature didn’t you.
A stack of “naughty” video cassette tapes dumped by the side of the road.
Illegal dumping is rife in Japan. All manner of unwanted stuff is dumped in the mountains and waterways. It is not uncommon to come across garbage bags of unwanted clothes or electronics dumped on mountain tracks. A lot of Japan’s forests are choked with dumped motorbikes and cars, pushies and furniture.
