OSAKA (Kyodo) The Osaka District Court ruled Friday that a homeless man should be registered as a resident of a public park in Osaka’s Kita Ward because that is where he lives.

According to the court, Yuji Yamauchi, 55, who has been living in a tent in Ogimachi Park since around 1998, attempted to register his address as the park with the ward office in March 2004.
