A boy casts a mock vote in a straw poll for the upcoming general election at the Kidzania career theme park in Tokyo on December 14, 2012. A group of elementary schoolchildren visiting the theme park took part in the exercise in the hope of teaching young people about the country's election process. Japan's young people in their 20s, alienated and outnumbered by a greying population, will barely bother to vote in weekend polls after a campaign that excluded social media and made little effort to engage them. Ruling Democratic Party of Japan leader and prime minister, Yoshihiko Noda (C), and opposition Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) leader Shinzo Abe are pictured in the background.
