東京のホームレス (Tokyo’s Poor And Homeless)February 19th, 2009

Ohayo, San Francisco! Konichiwa from Tokyo, Japan! The picture to the left is of me at the Sensoji Temple in Asakusa, Tokyo.
Like many spiritual communities found in large U.S. cities, the Sensoji Temple has a long history of caring for the less fortunate. The Sensoji Welfare institution was opened in 1958 and for over 50 years its many programs have evolved to include free legal aid, medical care and educational classes for those out of work.
Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
It’s nice to know that even though Tokyo, a city as rich as San Francisco, has communities of faith looking after its poor and homeless residents.
It would seem that this spirit of compassion is universal.
