Internet Cafe Refugees Published in Le Monde Magazine, France

Fumiya lost his apartment after quitting a job where it had been provided. He searched for a place to live but had no luck affording one with the $2,320 a month he earned working as a security guard. He's since been living in an internet cafe where he rents a tiny room for $660. Between the security deposit and two months rent required for a down payment, Fumiya estimates he would require $10,600 to rent a studio in Tokyo. Image by Shiho Fukada. Japan, 2013.
