Family Time at the Game Centre in Minamifuruya

It's lovely seeing young families enjoying game centres together in Japan. This particular scene was especially heart-warming, a young mother working the steering wheel of a racing game while her young boy slinked down in the seat, pushing the pedals with his little legs. His sisters focused intently on the screen screaming "Ganbatte!" (You can do it!) in support of their brother's efforts. As we enter the Golden Week holiday, there will no doubt be many more scenes like this of families enjoying their free time together, a somewhat rare occurrence considering the working hours of the average employee here in Japan.
