Japan's 'evaporated people' have become an obsession for this French couple

quote [ “We all dream sometimes, you know, you are fed up with your life, you are fed up with your job and you say, ‘Oh, why wouldn't I just disappear?’” Mauger says. “But then you discover that the reality is more complicated and the life they have is not so easy.” ]

Rather sad, actually. Culture, man!

I didn't know that was a thing, though, being told, I am not surprised.

I also curious about this place "Kamagasaki in Osaka". No only have I not heard of it, but Google Maps seems to think no such place exists...

Ah, the name was changed in 1966. Well, that would explain it.

Turns out to be just above Tennouji. Which explains some more things.
