Sleepers in Tokyo | The Taxi Driver

Travel to Japan, especially Tokyo, and you will find people sleeping... a lot. And sleeping anywhere.

The street out the back of our house is popular for taxi drivers taking 40-winks ahead of their next shift.

Caught this fella at it the other day.

Good that they rest but it pisses me off that they sleep there for ages and keep their engines running: summer for the air-con, winter for the heater. It's right next to a playground for the kids in our neighbourhood. So, sleep.... but please think of the kids you are subjecting to your fumes. Thank you. End of public service annnoncement :-)
