THAT is why women are supposed to go out in a group. At least she stands a good chance of surviving in Japan. In any major US city she would very likely be gang raped and robbed. Happy to say help was on its way. Oh deary me! Wondering if the guy at the counter is asking for a bottle of what she had. Either that or pointing at the bloke taking photos ;o I like the framing — esp. He was intent on some help being called. Good on him for that.
And after a ludicrous amount of alcohol, even tricker…. But there is something incredibly sad in these photos. A young attractive lady with no one taking an interest to assist her. The photos are a bit deceptive in that sense. Or at least the top one is. A young fella had tried to lift her up and get her on her feet, but she was having none of it.
But the man at the counter in the second photo was making sure she got some proper attention. This reminds me of old times when my uncle found people fainted like that in front of our school after too much alcohol. He would oftenly tap the person on the shoulder and offer something sweet for the person to recover, to drink juice or coffee. Perhaps, in Japan, men are the majority to faint on the street too…. My heart is sad to see a girl like that, I would try calling an ambulance. Not common to see women in this state to be honest, but at the same time it does happen.
Seen it a few times. Although clearly not that bad… But fortunately I clocked him coming out and managed to quickly get what I wanted. Such epic timing! You got the guy at the register telling the staff member about the girl outside! Him and the guy coming out with his shopping worked out perfectly. Nice when things come together like that. From experience in my younger days I found being laid stretched out, or in the recovery position the most comfortable way to pass the time until the effects of excess alcohol were manageable.
Being curled up like that is my reaction to being in pain. There is also a marked lack of dishevelment. Hair, shoes, dress, LV bag — all pristine. The second shot shows the concern. Glad you picked up on the reference. And yes, a little earlier and she may well have happy in the haze of a very drunken hour…. It was actually in the early afternoon. Often seen them rolling out drunk well into the afternoon. Hangovers are bad enough when you wake up in a nice comfy bed, so heaven knows how bad they are when you wake up in the street and are potentially a long way from home….
Admittedly a fair few people just watched past, but there were plenty of others concerned enough to help. Lee, I just came across your post here, and found your photos quite empathetic. Next time, would you please help her out after your photos. Are there lots of PCs around in Tokyo today? Best, Art. Your email address will not be published.

People here can sleep anywhere… Perhaps she fell over due to her crazy shoes and knocked herself out. They really can. After years here it still amazes me. I suppose this just goes against so much of what I have been taught. That said, a lot of people had simply walked by. Love the shot of the guy with his shopping looking at her as he passes by. What time in the morning was the photo taken? Just thinking of how long she had been there. Yeah, sadly it is. Glad to see that people are taking care of each other, even in the big city!
