20+ Shocking Photos Of Drunk Japanese By Lee Chapman Show That They Can Sleep Anywhere

Japan might have one of the lowest crime rates in the world, and also the highest life expectancy, but as you can see from these shocking pictures of drunken excess, that doesn’t mean that the Japanese don’t know how to have a good time!

The pictures were taken by Lee Chapman, a British photographer from Manchester and founder of the Tokyo Times who arrived in Tokyo in 1998 for “a year or two” and, well, never left. His revealing images shine a light on an element of life in Japan that few people think about when they think of the country. We’re used to colorful cosplayers and neon wonderlands, but these snaps of drunk people passed out in the streets in broad daylight or snoozing in potted plants introduce us to a different world entirely. Scroll down for some of our favorite photographs, and don’t forget to vote for the best.
