"...There are not enough jobs for us."

Homeless gardener

'...It won't be enough money for rent...'

"I used to be a gardener, but I lost my job, so I am living in the park. I am working at forestry for six months from next week, in the countryside. I do not need to sleep rough then, because I can get accommodation. I will save money from my wages, but it wonft be enough money for rent in Tokyo. If you rent a cheap flat, it costs £2000 before you start, and the money will never be refunded. Also I havenft got a guarantor for rent, so I will have to go back to live in the park after that job. I will live on the money I have saved until I can get another job. Sometimes I help homeless friends to get jobs as well.... but there are not enough jobs for us."
