Isse Ichidai Jidaigumi is a peculiar club that is getting plenty of attention in Japan. The group was born in Hokkaido and now has a branch in Tokyo. These young men dress in traditional Japanese robes and incongruously modern trilby hats, carry swords, and always have at least one basket with them ...to pick up garbage. Yes, they keep the city streets trash-free, with style.
