Shibuya Halloween Aftermath “China Tier”


The annual Halloween festivities in Shibuya have once again reached epic proportions this year as another horde of fans arrived dressed up in all sorts of outfits, though the only possible downside to the entire celebration may have been the mess after it was all done with.

Some videos depicting the Halloween cosplay mania:








The aftermath:

    The sad truth is the younger generation are learning bad habits from abroad and domestic;its monkey see monkey do world. Hence Japan is slowly losing respect overall. Though it is still a great place to go, but how much longer:(

    Highly developed countries have had peace for many years now. Peace fosters entertainment, and human nature will overindulge in it. Now is the time to be mindful of the actions we take, and their consequences. Not just Japan, but all of us.

    You and me as well. Just remember to try and make the world a bit better than how we found it. Even tiny helpful actions will add up eventually =]

    One of the few things I liked about the boy scouts was the "leave it better than you arrived" motto or "Leave like you were never there." Otherwise, it was a pretty disappointing experience since I'm non-religious.

    I agree. It's like that everywhere and getting like that everywhere. The smartphone / social media generation's going to make it worse before it gets better imho.

    I see a marked difference between the people raised back when things were more analog (even as late as the 80's and early 90's) and how people are after everything became about instant gratification, overstimulation, clickbait, social media grandstanding, etc.

    When children don't learn how to take things slowly, appreciate and respect people and (good) traditions, work for and earn the things they have and to be modest, humble, honest, and empathetic, they turn into childish adults who don't understand anything, and act like selfish 13 year old for an extended length of time.

    It's why I find myself agreeing with parents who don't give phones and tablets to their kids for a while and even restrict computer access. It's also why I fear for the future once all the people who were raised before broadband / smartphones die off. I'm afraid the world will turn into something like the movie Idiocracy.

    Really? You're going to take a once a year event thing as recent bad influence from outside sources and loss of respect? They trash this place every fucking year for one day, on Halloween. It's nothing new so if that's the case they already lost respect many years ago.

    or... if you've ever actually been to a place with a lot of people, you would know that bins are full most of the time and there's literally nowhere to throw the trash.

    It's better to throw all the trash into a collective pile than it is to throw them wherever.

    And no, taking your trash home isn't feasible unless you want to be that guy who's got hogging all the room because you're literally carrying trash with you.

    As far as I know Japan has very few public bins too. You’re expected to take your trash home with you.

    there are almost no public trash bins in tokyo.
    you'll find that lazy people find creative ways to stash their trash in odd places like between vending machines, behind station toilets etc...

    Hate to further break it to you, but that's wrong. If you've looked closely at international business conferences and economic trends. China won't be able to move past it's menial manufacturing industry economy while suffering predicted aging population problems and wealth disparities. On the other hand most western countries have turned to a service based economy and are steadily increasing.

    services that are offshored to india or onshored - ie. they have their local staff train foreigners on a visa and then fire the locals. these days privacy policies on financial products mention that your information will be processed outside your country.

    Wealth disparities are not a unique issue to China, and any wealth the west had is being sucked out of it. Aging population "problems" are a non-issue because they have artificiality kept their population limited. Once they secure enough foreign lands, whether its for growing food or otherwise, they will release limits. The reason I quoted "problems" is because its smarter to keep a population within thresholds rather than play the population ponzi scheme. The west ignores this and increases immigration without realising that those immigrants will get old too and then you need even more immigrants. The other thing they ignore is that the excess population will have no work in the environment they are sustaining.

    It's like this on every event where many people gather... though people, pigs. It's just a little annoyance to keep your own trash close to you and throw it later into a bin somewhere, most peopl-pigs decide it's just easy to throw it on the ground. On another hand, compare these guys to pigs is too low, for pigs (animals), that is. They are quite clean and misunderstood by humans.

    I remember there being very few bins around Tokyo as people don't eat while out walking but would be nice if they installed a few more.

    Interjecting a smidge of seriousness into the topic: Littering in Japan has actually be a constant problem, and a key factor has to do with a lack of public garbage cans in Japan. So if you have any garbage - cigarettes, crepe wrappers, plastic bags, etc. - that you've accumulated outside, your options are to find garbage cans in something like a shopping mall, simply to hold onto your garbage until you get home, or simply throw it on the ground. The last item is appealing if you have a lot of garbage on hand and it's going to be a long while before you can get home.

    Also at hand are generational attitudes to consumerism in Japan. The Japanese equivalent of Generation X (and also early millennials) grew up and/or started their adult lives through the Lost Decade and the Japanese economic crisis, which directly influenced what had previously been a culture of consumerism as a result of Japan's postwar economic miracle. They felt the financial crunch on their daily lives and were willing to be thrifty, meaning you saw less of Japanese people holding massive public parties and buying lots of stuff through the 90's and 00's. Japan's economy hasn't truly recovered since, but it has at least stabilized to some degree; what we're seeing now are Japanese millennials possessing a marked increase to personal spending relative to their parents, because Japanese consumerism culture was never really dismantled, and most millennials were very young children (or were not born yet) during the Lost Decade and thus never really developed the thrifty habits their parents did.

    The realistic solution is obviously more public spending for public garbage cans, but that seems unlikely given Japan's still-staggering economy that hasn't improved in spite of Abenomics. You're talking about installing millions of garbage cans across Japan's metropolitan areas, and having to invest in the infrastructure necessary to maintain them: Garbage trucks and waste disposal workers having to regularly replace garbage bags, and so on and so forth. It's not something the Japanese Diet is likely to consider anytime soon when they have what they consider to be more pressing concerns.

    "we're seeing now are Japanese millennials possessing a marked increase to personal spending relative to their parents, because {A} and {B}"

    You forgot {C} - Japan manufactured more of their own goods in their parents time. There has been an increase in goods manufactured in China. Walk into any Village Vanguard, Gamers, Mandarake, Animate etc.. and you'll see most of the recent items are now manufactured in China. Due to these cheaply made items, costs are maintained under inflation and thus purchasing power is higher than if they still made things locally.

    However, this is a losing deal since focusing on consumerism and not productivity ends in economic annihilation. The good times are rolling until the consumer cash runs dry. Soon enough, they will discover that if you don't have local jobs anymore, there is no work in order to make money to consume.

    Japan: The country that is so safe and peacful that littering is one of their few worries.

    But thn again, Japan hasn't been infected with middle-eastern genetic garbage. Oh did I say infected? I mean culturally-enriched. Slip of the tongue. Because getting authentic falafels is totally worth being run over by a truck-of-peace. Or get bombed to shit. Or get stabbed/axed/beaten. Remember, diversity is our strength!

    Wait what? Japan is at leeast 10 years ahead of the rest of th world in almost all important areas, particularly technology whil also bing one of the most ethnically homogenous? HOW IS THIS HAPPENING. I'm so shocked! (not.)

    Well, It's not any different here, any big mass of people will do that...if you think that local trashcans are enough to accommodate trash from horde of 1k+ people, then you're gravely mistaken.

    Pffft this is no way near a "chinese tier", at least people aren't bad enough to stick their trash in all the hard-to-reach gaps n' corners just to give the cleaners a hard time.

    "Look, we're feeding these people with our own money its our right to make them work harder by heavying their workloads so we can get the most out of what we've paid for"--heard this from some stubby ass chinl at a lunch meeting when I was in china back in 05'
