Buddhist Monk Asking For Alms

Buddhist monk asking for alms

The monk stood in the crowded street

Shot in the city of Shinjuku, Tokyo. A Buddhist monk wearing a conical hat was standing in the crowd and asking for alms silently. An alms bowl was in his hand. And he didn't talk to the pedestrians nor shout anything. He stayed motionless by the wayside. During I watched him, no one gave him some money. Most people were walking at the brisk pace and passing by him. Although I didn't know whether it was the reason, he kept drooping alone.
