Takashi Nishino seemed content, even though he had been sleeping on the streets of Tokyo the last five years and was going back to the same life. But for a while, at least, he was an international traveler. After visiting South Korea, Nishino flew to Hong Kong with two other homeless Japanese--Manabu Endo, 55, and Yuji Yamauchi, 50--and a 39-year-old South Korean, Choi Yong-jin. The delegation came to meet with Hong Kong homeless and exchange street-sleeping experiences.
