"...will house people who have been in transitional shelters and are waiting for long-term housing"…. and those in a similar situation in Japan, courtesy of 'the tsunami', unemployment, whatever ???? dear oh dear… not even Japanese and I'm ashamed for Japan...

only 90000 living in temporary sheds in tohoku (earthquake victims), so sounds fair.

An estimated 25,000 people are homeless in Japan, 5,000 of whom live in Tokyo (International Network of Street Papers, 2006). There are also around three million “Internet cafe refugees” who move from café to café each night.

oh, forgot to mention day workers...

Can you back that up with evidence? I've not met one single homeless person over the years who chose to be homeless.

Maybe it's different here in Japan. You tell me.
