Over the last 20 years, sales of full-calorie soda in the United States have plummeted by more than 25 percent. Soda consumption, which rocketed from the 1960s through 1990s, is now experiencing a serious and sustained decline.
Meanwhile, bottled water sales are rising.
A visit to the delightfully named Super Potato (mascot: a potato with a face), one of the district’s most well-stocked and delightfully decorated classic game emporiums, turned up many empty shelves.

I would love to visit Akihabara one day to experience the place myself.
Is it wrong to be irrationally excited for the Animal Crossing amiibo cards? Just preordered five packs and I struggle to explain why.
