LWIF EP90: Housing Japan’s Homeless

This is part 3 of a series of videos on homelessness in Japan. In this episode we talk once again with Professor Tom Gill from Meiji Gakuin University as well as take a tour of a doya (flophouse) and doya-gai’s (skid rows) in Tokyo (San’ya) and Yokohama (Kotobukicho).

In parts 4 and 5, we’ll talk with some formerly homeless individuals, follow along with an NPO (Non-profit organization), and get a grasp on the overall state of homelessness in Japan.
