Walked the sidewalk in front of South exit of the Shinjuku Station. Like other exits of this station, the sidewalk was crowded. The place had been under construction for a long time. I thought it was started already when I began to understand things. Yet it was finished finally in this several years. As a consequence, the sidewalk was widened. And a small hut selling government-run lottery stood on the edge of the sidewalk before I knew.
At the time of being, the flow of the pedestrians thinned out for a change. And a woman cleaned up around the hut.
There is a downturn in the economy in Japan. With worsening economic conditions, the sales of the lottery are also decreased. It is said the lottery is a kind of tax for poverty people. Nevertheless, they might be on the verge of becoming impossible to buy the lottery.
