I took this stealth photo with my phone in a smoky arcade & pachinko parlor here in Matsuyama.

There wasn’t anyone else around, so the baby was definitely with the two gentlemen playing pachinko. I’m not sure which of them was supposedly taking care of him(?), but for the kid’s sake I hope he doesn’t do so regularly.

Like Las Vegas, Japan has an unpublicized population whose gambling addiction sometimes leads to familial neglect.
