Have you heard of ‘Morning’ when you travel to Japan?
It is a free service of toast at cafe in the morning. If you order a drink e.g. a cup of coffee, you can get light food with it.
Many coffee shops had this service before.
But these days, with more coffee chains, family-owned coffee shops are vanishing. And the ‘Morning’ service is vanishing, too.
When I was a boy, I met my father during his break, he brought me to a coffee shop. It was in the center of Hiroshima City, near Mitsukoshi. Yes, Hiroshima has a Mitsukoshi department store, LOL.
Time seemed to be passing so slow that I was able to be relaxed with having ‘Morning’ service, I remember.
The prices with those coffee shops are higher than those of current chain shops, and people are moving to less expensive options, it is natural.
I will not say it was a good time. It was just my good memory.
This makes me wonder.
In Japan or maybe all over the world, many old people complain about current society and young people.
If young people are not different nor advanced, we cannot enjoy the convenience of this society. We would still live in the same world as 1000 years ago.
I am talking about Japan. I cannot generalize this on a world basis.
My parents lived the TV age, and they still do. They don’t have an iPhone, and they read the newspaper in the paper.
Young people in Japan are not attracted to TV. They use the iPhone to watch YouTube/Netflix and also get information from twitter. The number of newspaper subscriptions is decreasing dramatically.
And Information sources get diverse. I can talk to people all over the world so that I can get a different view from the ‘news’ published by media.
I like this society.
But I like the ‘Morning’ service, too)
