Jimmy Kimmel shared how a recent trip to Japan with his family made him realize how dirty and disgusting America is by comparison.

He had previously thought the U.S. was pretty clean compared to other places, but found Japan exceptionally so – like the entire country was Disneyland versus the U.S. being like Six Flags.

“After traveling to Japan, I realize that this place, this USA we’re always chanting about, is a filthy and disgusting country,” Kimmel said.

“I go to Europe, and there are dirt holes where plumbing is supposed to be. I hold my breath, and I go, ‘I’m glad I’m not one of these people,’ and then I go back home,” Kimmel said.

“It’s like the whole country is Disneyland and we’re living at Six Flags,” Kimmel said. “I’ve been home 36 hours, I have never felt dirtier. We are like hogs compared to the Japanese. I can’t imagine what they must think of us. ‘Oh, the garbage people. Yes, the Americans. Garbage.’”

He didn’t encounter a single dirty bathroom in Japan and said their public restrooms were cleaner than operating rooms in the U.S.

Even truck stop bathrooms were spotless.

“The bathrooms in Tokyo and Kyoto are cleaner than our operating rooms here. Everywhere you go the bathrooms are clean, they don’t smell bad, they have those toilets that wash you from the inside out,” Kimmel said.

Kimmel also admired how Japanese culture encourages people to carry their own trash since public bins were removed for safety after a terrorist attack.
