Gacha Gacha no Mori Store Walkthough

 In the delightful city of Yokohama is/was a delightful shop full of Gacha toys, called Gacha Gacha no Mori 「ガチャガチャの森」 (the Forest of Capsule toys).  

I thought it was cool as there are just heaps of  gashapon machines all over the place and it just feels a bit classy.  If you have a chance, I highly recommend checking them out.   Their website for store locations.   Their Twitters as well.

I was allowed the opportunity to stroll through it with my camera and be a nuisance for a while.  So thanks for the opportunity, and if you're around one one day somewhere, check it out!

Also, check out my video that I made.

February 17th is Gacha day!

 So today I found out it is Gacha day!  

The anniversary of gacha being launched in Japan in 1965.  Well there ya go.

It was started by a company called Penny, who stole the idea from America.  Penny is still around to this very day, which is nice.  

Here's a link in Japanese.  Google translate works with this if you need it.

And another link giving us the same information in a slightly different format.

And the home page of Penny.

There we go, I just thought I'd share that.  Happy birthday Gacha in Japan.
