Nowadays, the news and articles on the internet mention we see a growing pattern in younger generations who are are opting out of using cars. Not only this but these same youngsters are starting to avoid eating out, are no longer watching TV. Many are refusing traditional foods and ways of eating such as sashimi and wasabi (horse radish) or oden with mustard.

One may wonder if the situation is a serious as stated...but even if it is, we will introduce you to an event so wonderful even the youth avoiding cars cannot resist coming down for a look!
