    PART OF ARTICLE

    " It was when Hyungsik Lee entered the prestigious University of Tokyo that realized Japan's social stratification.

    Having grown up in one of dozens of municipal government-run houses for low-in-come households in Hyogo Prefecture,poverty used to be part of his daily scenery.

    On the way to his local elementary school were dwellings with homeless people where he saw a man who froze to death taken away by an ambulance.

    At school,about half of his classmates were from single-parent households with financial difficulties.

    Some dropped out of high school,while some were sent to juvenile detention centers for committing crimes,he said.When Lee,26,thanks to his education-minded mother,went on to enter the nation's top university,many of his local friends were working factories or fast-food chains.

    Coming from such an environment ,it was shocking for him to find out that many students he met on campus were from wealthy hoseholds,where going to college was the norm.

    According to the university's 2014 data,54.8 percent of its students were from households with more than ¥9.5 milion in annual income."
