Samurai Clean the Mean Streets of Tokyo

Japan takes pride in its samurai heritage, often reflecting on how the intense discipline and enduring sense of honor inform many aspects of modern Japanese life. These performers take it to a whole 'nother level, using samurai moves to do battle with the litter that plagues the streets of one of Tokyo's busiest and most popular neighborhoods!
