In a green outfit with silver trim and matching mask, a superhero waits by the stairs of a Tokyo subway station, lending his strength to the elderly, passengers lugging heavy packages and mothers with baby strollers.
“Japanese people find it hard to accept help, they feel obligated to the other person, so the mask really helps me out,” said Mr Tadahiro Kanemasu.
The slender 27-year-old has spent three months being a good Samaritan at the station on Tokyo’s western side. Like many in the city, it has neither elevators nor escalators and a long flight of dimly lit stairs.

They’ve been painted by Egyptian and Western artists, to show solidarity for the people of Egypt. All 25 donkeys have been transported from Cairo for the Caravan exhibition.

A California designer has turned a $2,000 dumpster into a fully functional home, complete with a bathroom, bed, kitchen and sun deck. Gregory Kloehn converted the dumpster in Brooklyn off of a hunch, and now he uses it whenever he stays in New York.
Kloehn added wheels to the bottom of the dumpster so it could be more easily transported and carved a custom door on the side for easy entry and exit. For drinking water, he installed a six-gallon water tank on the roof. The same water is funneled into the tiny toilet when he needs to use the bathroom. The water is also hooked up to an outdoor shower.
The red-and-black-colored interior is insulated with padding and features a small seating area. But sleeping appears uncomfortable. He appears to only barely fit inside when he lies down. The small kitchen takes up one corner of the dumpster and features a microwave and mini stove. Both run on electricity. Photos: AP Photo/John Minchillo. Continue »
