Maybe it's because some nationalities, like the Japanese, are an inherently cleaner people.

Japan also has an extremely low crime rate compared to most countries. Genetics has nothing to do with this?

You'll see some dirty areas in Tokyo but that mainly happens to be in areas like Shibuya and Shinjuku which tend to have the most traffic. And usually it's the result of people partying and hanging out till the sun rises, so you'll see cigarette butts, vomit and other trash all over the place. Even though however, it's much more maintained and it'll be clean before it becomes bustling again. Where areas in big cities here in the west, the trash will just continue to pile up and pile up. Quite terrible.

Like others have mentioned however, Japan is a culture that just has extremely good habits not only compared to the west but compared to the rest of the world mostly.
