So we all know that buying a house is an expensive investment and not many people can afford to do so.

That’s why some of us have to resort to renting or probably continue living with our parents until we’re financially ready. …or until they kick us out, whichever comes first.

However, this 54-year-old Japanese man did something extraordinary because he actually lived in a public toilet in the tiny service hatch located above it. What? How?

According to Koreaboo, on April 12, the man was busted after an electrician in Usuki who was fixing a light in the public bathroom spotted a shadow of the man when he was there.

The electrician proceeded to make a police report and when they arrived, they searched the service hatch and was stunned to find the man standing in the minuscule 92 square meter space. That’s not all, he was also surrounded by his belongings.

And it wasn’t like his belongings were few either, in fact the man, who has been identified as Takashi Yamanouchi stored his clothes, magazines, gas stove and heater in that tiny area. But the most bizarre find of the day was when they also found that he had stored more than 300 bottles of his own urine. But why? Isn’t he living above a public bathroom?

Although he could only stand up fully in the triangular attic, the entire service watch was kept neat and clean by Yamanouchi. When the police questioned him, he explained that he was from Gifu, and had left his previous home a decade ago.

He had been roaming around like a nomad until he found the service hatch three years ago, and decided to make a home there. What’s even more surprising is that Yamanouchi actually discovered the hatch when he saw another homeless person climbing into the hatch and they actually lived together for some time.

The person eventually moved out but Yamanouchi continued to make that space his home for three more years. But now that he has been caught, the police will be charging him for trespassing.

I wonder whether he would survive if he had made his home above one of Malaysia’s public toilets instead?
