Japan’s homeless and cyber-homeless


I was recently in Japan, and did indeed see plenty of homeless people, most notably attending a rally put on in Ueno park by Christian missionaries and sleeping in the early morning on the stairs at Shinjuku station. I never went into an internet cafe, but if I had I imagine I would have run into the cyber-homeless detailed in this report.
