Some Japanese Pokémon Go Players Have Bad Manners 

By Brian Ashcraft on at

The stereotype is that Japan is clean. Many people are, but certainly not all, including some of the country’s Pokémon Go players.

From a young age, Japanese people are taught to pick up after themselves. Kids in other countries are taught that as well, of course, but in Japan the point is driven home because it’s students who clean their classrooms and, yes, even their toilets.

Leaving rubbish anywhere is bad manners. Japan is no exception, but Japanese Twitter users have been calling out Pokémon Go players for their “terrible manners” and seeming to take particular offence to the mess and calling it “embarrassing”.

One Twitter user asked, “[i]s this what Japanese morals are like?” Others say that if people don’t clean up after themselves, locations will ban Pokémon Go because they don’t want to deal with the trash.

If only these Pokémon Go players were more like Japanese football fans!

People, however, aren’t just taking photos and complaining, but some are picking up the trash — either theirs or the trash of others.

A few children, it seems, even collected litter at Setagaya Park in Tokyo:
