    I`d hit up the cafe. I`m pretty little so I can sleep in a recliner just fine- plus internets! and free beverages!

    Just what I`d expect from a society poised to accomplish. The overcrowding would get to me though.

    I`ve heard that the homeless can actually make a living just by collecting trash and recycling in Japan. Much more than what you get in this country.

    when i went to japan i went to a food stall early in the morning. i was attracted to it by the delicious aroma wafting across the street. i received a bowl of soup from the cheerful ladies who staffed it and it was very tasty. when i tried to pay, they refused(???)

    i later learned it was a soup kitchen for the homeless. the next day the line was about 1km long, seriously. it must of been it`s first day when i sampled their product.

    The third option kind of reminds me of what I did when I was homeless back in my early 20s. I`d collect money off the street and from selling old books I found to the used book store. Then, I`d use it to stay up all night drinking coffee in a diner and go sleep on the couch in the library with a book over my face, when they opened in the morning.

    When you look like a college student, this plan works well.

    Another good one, if you have a car, is national parks. Most are free to camp at and you can stay at each one for up to two weeks. Some even have showers. The ones that aren`t free, cost like $5 a night.

    I love my cheap house! (it cost me $20,000 when I bought it 14 years ago) a safe place for my cats and my stuff! Having no home would kill me for sure...

    I would totaly do the capsule hotel. All my stuff where I can see it, privacy (except noises), and a very snug fit. What`s not to like?
