(ConservativeHub.com) – Jimmy Kimmel, the host of a talk show, shared his observations on the cleanliness of Japan compared to the United States and Europe during a segment on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” He suggested that Japanese people might view Americans as synonymous with trash, highlighting the stark contrasts in cleanliness and public order between the two countries.

Kimmel reflected on the common discussions in American politics about issues like homelessness, deteriorating infrastructure, and crime. However, his story took a personal turn as he recounted his recent visit to Japan, which dramatically altered his perception of societal cleanliness and order.

He expressed his initial belief that America was relatively well-maintained compared to other parts of the world, including Europe. Kimmel humorously remarked about his experiences in Europe, where he encountered substandard sanitation, which he tolerated until he could return to the U.S.

His perspective shifted after visiting Japan, where he was struck by the impeccable cleanliness, especially in public restrooms, which he found to be exceptionally clean and odor-free throughout Tokyo and Kyoto. He said that after visiting the island country, he realized that the US is a “filthy and disgusting place.” Kimmel was impressed that this standard of cleanliness extended beyond luxury hotels to public spaces like restaurants, bars, and even truck stops, He humorously compared the cleanliness of the restrooms to the teeth of actress Jennifer Garner.

Kimmel marveled at the cleanliness of Japanese streets, noting the absence of litter and the cultural practice of individuals responsibly managing their own waste. He recounted an incident from 30 years ago involving a terrorist attack with poisonous gas in trash cans, which led to the removal of public trash bins. This, according to Kimmel, instilled a disciplined habit among Japanese people to take their trash home and maintain public cleanliness.

Drawing an analogy between theme parks, Kimmel compared Japan to Disneyland and the U.S. to Six Flags, emphasizing the stark difference in cleanliness and order. He concluded his monologue by reflecting on his return to America, feeling much dirtier by comparison, and joking about the Japanese perception of Americans as “garbage people.”
