I Was Homeless In Japan (Part 2) // Storytime

★☆★READ THIS BEFORE COMMENTING★☆★




Be sure to check out part 1 of the story:


So yeah, this was basically a draw my life about my life in Japan. Condensing 10 years down into 15 minutes makes it sound a lot more fantastical than it actually was.

I mean, there were serious times when I thought I was going to die and just ready to give up... kind of like doing a Youtube channel haha.

But, like I said, I'm actually really glad that I went through it because I feel like I learned more over these last few years than most people learn in their entire lives.

The downside, though, is that I really can't relate to most people, because they care so much about these little things and I'm like well yeah but like you have a roof over your head and food in your fridge so why are you so upset?

Anyway, thanks for watching.

The Hong Kong man who chose to be homeless, and still has no regrets

Subscribe to our YouTube channel for free here:

Unlike many bloggers in Asia, Simon Lee does not live a glitzy, luxurious life. Lee chooses not to have a home or a job, and says his situation is a source of happiness. For the past seven years, the 52-year-old had been sleeping rough in Hong Kong’s Victoria Park not far from the upscale Causeway Bay shopping district. He is unmarried and has cut off all ties with his family, spending his days writing his blog in public libraries.

SANYA, Tokyo, Broken city

Tokyo. The Sum­ida River runs under lanes of sus­pended motor­ways bridges. Along the banks of the river, lines of card­board shacks cov­ered in blue can­vas stretch for­ever, caught in the con­stant hum of the traf­fic speed­ing over­head. This is home for the home­less, the anti-city. This is where the mod­ern world's mis­fit shore up, some­where between exile and asy­lum, scratch­ing a liv­ing together, walk­ing the city streets col­lect­ing empty cans and used card­board boxes to sell by the weight. They tell us about their past, social inter­ac­tions and about two worlds; the world where they live and the one they only walk through. Japan, the abstract machine. Their words cre­ate a new vision of Tokyo, speak­ing from the edge they talk about the centre.

Caring For The Homeless In Japan (2001)

Life In The Park (March 2001) - Unemployment has hit men over 50 the hardest, but since the Japanese only get a pension after the age of 65, many are left to their own devices. But there is some hope amidst the despair.

Subscribe to Journeyman here:

In the centre of fast-living urban Japan, the homeless of Sinjuku Park have founded their own society. Here 200 homeless people have built themselves permanent shelters out of tarpaulin and wood. The police and the park-keepers tolerate their presence and simply pretend not to see the little blue houses. Two years ago they decided to take fate into their own hands. Every day they cook for 300 people and keep their homes clean and tidy. A very different view of Japanese pride.

Who are Japan's Homeless? (Part 2)

This is part 2 of a series of videos on homelessness in Japan. In this episode we talk once again with Professor Tom Gill from Meiji Gakuin University. He talks about how homelessness in Japan was around the turn of the century and who the stereotypical homeless people were at that time.

Conditions and attitudes have changed, and the government has a couple programs in place to aid the poor and homeless, which we'll cover in part 3.

Living in a tent - being homeless in Japan

How to survive in japan without a home.

Why Japan's Homeless are Different from North America's (Part 1)

One day while walking around Shinjuku, a major hub for government and business in Tokyo, Japan, I noticed a shelter built by a homeless man. It looked semi-permanent, but more importantly, had solar panels on it. I thought this was very different than the homeless I encountered in my former city of Vancouver, Canada, so I started to investigate homelessness in Japan.

I was lucky enough to interview Professor Tom Gill, who has researched homelessness and other societal issues in Japan for many years.

This is part 1 of a series of videos I'm making about the homeless in Japan. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave in the comments. Thanks for watching.

Being Homeless In Japan | THE VOICELESS #20

Homelessness is a major social issue that probably exists in every major city around the world. But in Japan, this issue is something that rarely gets talked about, to the point we were almost convinced that there were no homeless people in Japan until we saw them with our own eyes. It is estimated that there are over 1,500 homeless people in Tokyo but the truth is, no one knows for sure how many there are or how they became homeless. So we hit the streets of Tokyo to see if we could interview some homeless people to get their insight, but then we quickly came to realize how difficult it was because none of them wanted to show their face on camera. But after spending hours searching and getting turned down by them, we finally managed to find someone who was willing to talk with us.

How To Be Homeless in Japan

Hard work, dignity, and an unexpected reward when the day is done.

In 2018, for the first time since The Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare began keeping statistics, Japan’s homeless population dropped under 5,000 (N.B. Japanese NGOs claim that the real number is over 12,000). Twenty years ago it was over 25,000.

Since then, the Japanese government has passed legislation guaranteeing the homeless assistance in housing, health care, and seeking employment.

Unfortunately, the homeless are not eligible for welfare unless they can prove that their families are unable to support them, and most of the homeless don’t want their loved ones to find out their situation.

Why are there still homeless on Japan’s streets? In a country that values self -reliance, many homeless are too ashamed to seek assistance, preferring to hide from the public. Others do their best to blend in, riding the train endlessly or spending the night in furos (public baths) or internet cafes.

Those who do choose to live on the street rarely beg. They collect recyclables or sweep the streets and do other cleanup jobs. A few may find work as day laborers.

The average age of japan’s homeless population is just over 61 years old and virtually all of them are men.
