Unique Capsule Toys in Tokyo!

Japan is definitely known for its crazy amounts of capsule toys. In Japanese, they are called Gachapon. The name comes from the sounds it makes when buying one of these toys. A “gacha gacha” when twisting the knob, and a “pon” when the ball drops down. It’s really such a satisfying sound so keep your eyes open! These fun toys usually have many variations and usually around 200-400 yen to get one variation. Capsule toys can be found almost everywhere in batches of 4-6 but sometimes, there are huge areas dedicated to all kinds of capsule toys. Here are some Unique Capsule Toys in Tokyo that I saw.

I was casually taking the train and had a transfer at Ueno station and just as I went up via the escalator I bumped into a whole section of capsule toys store called Ueno Land and as I took a quick lap around there were some that caught my eye! There’s a lot of places where they have big sections of these gachapon machines but Ueno Land really had some interesting ones! Here are Unique Capsule Toys in Tokyo!
