About twice a month, Shoukei Matsumoto posts a public invitation on Twitter inviting strangers to come around to his work place at approximately 7:30 a.m. to help him clean. When they're done sweeping and polishing, there's a short window for conversation and a cup of tea. An hour later, the guest workers are on their way again, spilling out into Kamiyacho in central Tokyo and heading on to work.
