One day while walking around Shinjuku, a major hub for government and business in Tokyo, Japan, I noticed a shelter built by a homeless man. It looked semi-permanent, but more importantly, had solar panels on it. I thought this was very different than the homeless I encountered in my former city of Vancouver, Canada, so I started to investigate homelessness in Japan.

I was lucky enough to interview Professor Tom Gill, who has researched homelessness and other societal issues in Japan for many years.

This is part 1 of a series of videos I’m making about the homeless in Japan. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave in the comments. Thanks for watching.

Discussing the “reinterpretation” of Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution. This “reinterpretation” effectively allows Japan to exercise the right to collective self-defense (i.e. militarily aid it’s allies if they’re attacked). After WWII, Japan renounced war as a means to settle international disputes, however, that does not prohibit Japan from having self-defense forces. The deployment of Japanese forces overseas (in support roles) is usually a rather controversial topic.

Article 9 protest march in Japan

First time I ever saw a protest march in my towns ;this against the new change in Jaapan saying they can go to war

Article 9 of Japan’s constitution states “the Japanese people forever renounce war” and will never have any other military potential.
But the goverment imposed a bill allowing the country to help its allies if there was a “threat to Japanese survival”.

Using force if there’s no other way to eliminate a threat to national security, is also allowed. The bill also comes at a time of rising tension surrounding the continued presence of the 23 U.S. military bases across Japan.
