Salaryman asleep in Ueno Park. He looked dead but wasn't. I don't think he made ithome the previous night as this was shot early in the morning
"Очень много усталых людей, - говорит автор снимков, -
конечно, они спят везде, где только можно, чтобы получить хоть какое-то время на отдых перед тем, как вернуться к работе".
Father and daughter in the park.
It's as if I wear an invisibly cloak.
I assumed the young girl was being looked after by her father. He was too lost in thought to see me

They didn't know until after I got the shot and were quite happy I did
Man in the sun. A small square block of hot concrete and the ability to sleep anywhere
Hot and humid
Sitting in a car in Tokyo traffic is normal.

Asleep while waiting for his train home late in the evening
Late night, empty train.

And he was only on the bench for 15 minutes
Bike courier asleep
Low night and a mowing train with no room to breath, early morning on the Tokyo Metro.
Everyone closes their eyes, everyone asleep but awake for another day
