Overcome with a burning need for yet more weird plastic toys (hey, don’t pretend this doesn’t happen to you!) I was poking around in my favorite Akihabara gachagacha emporium when I discovered THIS:
If you’d like to visit the Akihabara area the next time you’re in Tokyo, photos & maps are on my website, The Tokyo Guide I Wish I’d Had. And although this series may be sold out by the time you’re next in Tokyo, there will be plenty more to take its place! If you’d like to discover the latest, greatest gachagacha yourself, a guide to the best gachapon hunting spots in Tokyo (with maps!) are on the Tokyo travel blog too. Happy hunting!
Read a novel set in Tokyo
Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
