Summer Jumbo Lottery (Summer Jumbo Takarakuji)

A moment of strange Japanese culture experience.

This is an evening (around 8:00) at West Shinjyuku, Japan.

About 100 people are waiting on a line to buy lottery tickets.

Summer Jumbo lottery provides one of the highest winning prizes in Japan ( about $2.5M each for the 3 first prizes).

In general, you have to wait to do things in Tokyo especially big areas, Shinjuku, Shibuya, etc…

but it is still surprising how patient Japanese people are to buy a dream.
