HOW MANY HOMELESS PEOPLE EXIST IN JAPAN?

The paper says that “Pls spare some food for dinner today “

Hi,guys.How are you doing today?I hope you haven’t got Corona virus.
When I was talking with my friend Spanish today,she asked me if Japan has any homeless people.So I will write about the situation of “HOMELESS PEOPLE” here today.
It’s normal for people living in other countries to ask such a question partly because homeless people are seen less frequently in Japan than
in gigantic cities in other countries.There used to be over 25,000 homeless Japanese in 2003 and their shacks covered with blue plastic sheets were often seen along riverbanks or parks in Tokyo.But by 2019,the number of them has decreased to 4,555 in throughout Japan according to the Ministry of Health,Labour and Welfare,because now there are more self-support facilities and emergency shelters where they can stay.

My workplace right now is at Shinjuku that is in the middle of TOKYO.So I often see homeless Japanese like below pics.Interestingly enough,although some homeless Japanese are entitled to get welfare aid from government that is payed about 1,000USD per month,they do not rely on it due to great self-respect.
They don’t wanna feel that make you alive from other people.
Sometimes Japanese spirits are too complicated….

  1. No,Not at all.
    I got a permission from them to put the photos on this blog…
    You should not be negative all the time.Think positive bro

  2. did the homeless people bother you while you were photographing them? or did you take the photos secretly?

    how did you feel taking photos of the homeless?

    stay safe and well.

  3. Thank you for your comment Joelle.
    I’m glad you have visited Japan before.
    Although I’ve never been to France,it’s one of the countries I wanna visit:

  4. Two years ago, my son and his wife treated us with a trip to Tokyo. I saw a couple of homeless people and it was just like you say: their belongings were neatly packed into a cube. Our daughter-in-law also said exactly what you explain about being too proud to ask for help. I came back to France with a deep admiration of your culture, for this reason and many other ones. I felt truly safe walking in Tokyo, unlike in Paris, which I avoid like the plague!

  5. I’m fortunate that California still offers a form of Obamacare. My monthly cost is $175. Without the state-assisted plan, the same insurance would be $1000/mo – but I might not even be able to get it because I’m too fat. I was denied in the past. They phrased it as “height to weight ratio is exceeded.”

  6. Thank you for your comment leendadll.
    I know.when it comes to healthcare aid in States,it’s up to people.There’s no National Full Insurance though Obama tried to implement it before.
    Since you look smart and educated,write more posts to make some money here on WordPress instead of public insurance.

  7. Interesting. Here (SoCalif), homeless get no financial assistance at all but many feel entitled to it.
    I understand because I’m on my 3rd year of virtually no income but don’t qualify for any assistance but horribly bad, and inconveniently located, heathcare.i falsify my income to qualify to pay for better fare.
    Our government is implementing a lot of plans to assist workers who are financially hurt by coronavirus but nothing for those of us who were already hurting and now have even less chance of finding work.
    It is what it is.
