The Host Club Vending Machine

When I first saw this gachapon machine filled with little plastic champagne towers, I thought WAT? Who needs a set of miniature, light-up, host club furniture? I mean, even though it’s pretty happenin’ how they change color and all…

…I wasn’t instantly throwing all my money at the coin changer. Until…

…it hit me that the Drunken Pets that helped me ring in the new year BADLY needed a partytown for the other eleven months
And what could keep them more entertained than quaffing champagne with the hostpet of their dreams?
But that’s not all – check out the action at Club Minifig
Way more fun than the Temple of Airjitsu, where they’re constantly being ambushed by pesky Ninja Warriors
Even The Statue of Too Much Liberty can let her hair down at the Gacha-gacha Club
And need I even mention that everyone’s favorite radioactive lizard welcomes the opportunity to drink whatever he wants, whenever he wants?

This series may be sold out by the time you’re next in Tokyo, but there will be plenty more to take its place! If you’d like to discover the latest, greatest, gachagacha, a guide to the best gachapon hunting spots in Tokyo (with maps!) is on my travel blog, The Tokyo Guide I Wish I’d Had. Happy hunting!

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!
