Samurai Warriors Clean Up Dirty Streets
Since 2006, the Gomihiroi Samurai have tidied up the streets of Tokyo. They are armed with tongs, that the samurai maneuver like swords, and the desire to see their city sparkle. The group of volunteer Samurai catch attention on the street wearing traditional robes, and trash bins as a backpack. They’ve also garnered a large fan base on TikTok. While the Gomihiroi Samurai are not trained martial artists, they say they’re fighting an enemy: trash.
