Some folks are lucky

I have read about this kind of thing happening in Japan before---someone inviting a stranger---always a foreigner---into their home overnight. (There is a TV show similar in which a Japanese TV star, camera crew in tow, runs around in small towns asking to be put up for the night. This is a bit different.) It can happen in any country---I know it is possible in the US in rural areas---but it is an unusual thing too. Would you invite a stranger to stay overnight with you? It is a bit more surprising to me when it happens in Japan, given the propaganda Japanese hear form the time they are children about how dangerous the outside world, and thus outside people are compared to Japan. Naturally, not everyone believe that bull.

Anyway, here is the story.
