Japanese lifestyle Consumption tax

  The consumption tax will be raised from April 1st in Japan.
 In Japan, the consumption tax has been 5%.
The new tax will be raised to 8%.
  Probably it is not so high compared to the other countries.
  A lot of people are rushing to the store.
  I heard that people called it "last minute demand".
  In Tokyo, people make a line to buy their commutation ticket.
  And people make a line at the gas station.
  But the total of petrol cost is not so different even if the tax
is raised. (maybe it's just 1 Euro or so)
