I just wanted to mention that homeless people in Tokyo, as far as Ive ever heard and experienced, don’t beg, steal, or otherwise bother the rest of society. In fact they actually try to do productive things like collect cans, paper etc for recycling and whatever money that may bring in. it is a big change from other big cities where the homeless are obviously begging and can be very confrontational. I could write an entire essay on the subject and I’m sure others have already so I will just end by saying may God continue to bless the homeless and those who work to help them.
