Kyoto Homeless Man

Kyoto Homeless Manホムレス京都

Just south of Shichijo Dori along Kyoto's Kamo River, we saw a homeless man transporting his load of crushed cans.

On recycling days in Kyoto, a small army of middle-aged homeless men on bikes rush to the collection points to take the cans before the official city trucks come for them.

The load he has, while large, would not be heavy. However, he clearly labored to keep the hundreds of crushed and packed cans balanced.

He had carefully stuffed the two blue tarps, tied them, and then with separate rubber chords fixed both to his old bike.
