Outside staircases. Doors. Stacks of stuff. People sleeping outside. And more. Mainly in Yokohama. Photographs by Tom Gally.

Yeah, this post is about Japan. Isn't there supposed to be something wacky?

You asked for it, you got it! Wacky pictures of Japanese people asleep on the street!

maybe this is bad form, but i couldn't help thinking of the gallery of photos along the same lines that i just posted over at flickr, of the omnipresent discarded refrigerators here in new orleans, post katrina.

shoepal,
nice link!
especially since there's a BoC track from Bleep at the bottom.
Although it's quite sad and depressing. My town has dirty hobos sleeping on the street and in stairwells, Japan has clean businessmen...

Japan has its share of hobos, but they tend to live in groups of blue-tarped tents in the city parks. Examples here and here.
