The »nojuku« or »box people«, not always jobless but homeless, try to live clean and orderly in basic shelters built from ply-board, cardboard and blue waterproof fabric. The lowest standard of »living rooms« are folded carton boxes, used only overnight in subway stations. This temporary housing is often in very prominent and public areas, e.g. close to temples and in famous parks with many cardboard villages of up to 300 - 500 people - numbers exploding.
