One of the first problems foreigners face when coming to Japan is figuring out the complicated waste removal system. Unlike in America (I can't speak for other Western nations), Japan separates all of its garbage into different categories. These items are to be bagged separately and are picked up on different days of the week. It can be a challenge to memorize, but what makes it even more difficult is the language barrier as well. Luckily, most cities have English information on sorting out the garbage. But, if you haven't quite gotten there yet, I've made a quick video explaining the process!
