While I walked down Kyoto’s Shijo-dori, I discovered a sight I never expected to find in this immaculate city — a tangle of wires; not that it was a common sight.
What amazed me most about this city was how free the pavements were of litter, yet I had a hard job finding a bin. What was the city’s secret that kept its citizens from littering the way most other countries do?
I witnessed one Japanese teen taking trash from her bag to empty in a bin. Who knows how long she carried it around before finding somewhere to dispose of it properly? I suspect the rare piece I did see, was dropped by a tourist because it was in the heavy tourist zone.
