At any time when we go to Japan, we like going to Akihabara and visiting the capsule toy (gashapon or gachapon) shops there. The little toys are a lot cooler than those that you’re going to discover in U.S. merchandising machines. I took some photographs of my most up-to-date go to to a capsule toy retailer in 2108 (see beneath). There have been toy variations of eyeglasses, cameras, sushi, buildings, chibi characters, anatomical elements and far, a lot, way more.
(I’ve been educating myself Blender to make digital gashapon. I name the collection Plastic Punks.)
Above, a video in regards to the greatest capsule toy retailer on the planet. It is in Ikebukuro, which has actually been constructed up since Carla and I spent 5 months there in 1987!
