The homeless in Japan are an orderly lot. Those in Tokyo set up neat shelters of a uniform shade of blue along peripherals of green patches that dot the city. You won’t even realise they are what they are unless you are local.
Some of these unfortunate people are quite imaginative, too. They beg to differ.
One such woman in the southern town of Kasuya housed herself in the top compartment of a closet in someone else’s home.
It is baffling how she could sneak in and out of an occupied house, climb up and down from an upper cabinet, and remain unnoticed.
And, doesn’t she need toilet breaks at all throughout the hours the owner was at home? I suspect she made provisions for that up there. Perhaps the owner should thoroughly, thoroughly, check the cabinet out.
She sustained her routine for an entire year. It was not until she started helping herself with food in the kitchen that she gave the game away.
