Thanks to social media, you can follow this man's battle with boredom, long lonely nights, dealing with the weather and the call of nature. His Twitter handle is @Xxxprius and you can follow his progress as he sits in front of the Ginza Apple Store. He has already admitted that the journey he faces is a tough one.
For now, the prospective Apple iPhone 5S buyer has set up a little table with an Apple iPad and has already entertained the media.
