Why is Japan so clean?

It is sooo clean. I mean, immaculate. Why can't Chicago be like that? All of the Chicago sidewalks have black spots on the ground. Japanese sidewalks are CLEAN. No sun spots!
Update: Is it cool for young people to litter over there? I know in Chicago, you are considered lame/uncool/weird if you tell someone to not littler.
