As a casual observer of Japanese life and culture, one will inevitably encounter the future generations of Japan, a.k.a. the children.  Now, let it be known that I am not disparaging other children, but in my opinion, Japanese children are just soooooo cute, or kawaii, especially when you see them going on field trips in little matching uniforms with matching hats (2 different colors to denote girls from boys) and holding hands, a la the buddy system.  As you see in this picture, these little kids are placed in mobile “cribs” so they can be carted to their field trip destination, the train station, in this case, to see the real live action of trains.  Choo-choo!
