Japanese woman arrives on a clean up campaign

Date Posted: 2006-02-04

Hiroko Oyamada is a woman who loves everything clean.

The 30-year-old Japanese woman is so enamored with a clean environment that she’s on a nationwide crusade to rid the country of trash in the streets. She began her odyssey in Hokkaido, in Japan’s far northern reaches, last May. All along her route, she’s been picking up trash and promoting community price and cleanliness.

“Japan is the ‘number one’ clean country,” she says as she walks, bicycles and taxis her way around promoting a clean environment. Oyamada arrived in Okinawa January 25th, pressing to pick up at least one full bag of trash each day as she walks an average 40 kilometers.

She says the trash laying around on streets is enough to make her sick. “I feel very sorry and sad because Japan isn’t clean enough. I hope people will think about clean life.” Oyamada takes her mission seriously, preaching not only the pick-up-trash theme, but recycling too. “Trash should be divided,” she says. “Burned, not burned, canned, bottles, recycled, etc.”

Oyamada says she’s met “a thousand nice people too, so not only did I pick up trash, but I’ve made friends too.”
