Today’s Japan Photo: Gachapon Alley

How many of you love collecting gachapon (ガチャポン)? For Today’s Japan Photo, we take a look at this amazing two rows of Gachapon machines all lined up neatly in Yodobashi, Akihabara. Just choosing which one to collect would probably give you a headache ^^

For those interested in how the word “gachapon (ガチャポン)” was derived, it is actually a combination of two sounds:  “gasha” or “gacha” for the turning of a crank on a toy vending machine, and “pon” for the sound of the toy capsule dropping into the receptacle.
