The other day I was downtown in Tenjin, the big shopping district, and there were some homeless people playing music on the streets and collecting money in little buckets that looked like this. It might sound like an every day scene for any city in the US, but homeless people and street musicians both are incredibly rare things here. I can count the amount I’ve seen on one hand. I recorded part of one of the songs because I was blown away by how intense the man was playing.
