Rickshaw Sighting

A disused rickshaw sits in front of Tokyo YMCA Yamanote Community Center in Takatanobaba.

I can sort of understand why it would be there, but it's still a little baffling. Although the word rickshaw comes from the Japanese name (jin-riki-sha), they went out of everyday use around 80 years ago. The were most likely used in some cultural event hosted by the YMCA, years ago.
