Sticking to the straight and narrow has never been cuter, thanks to these adorable kittycat gacha-gacha toys, and the vending machine that dispenses them on the Yanaka Ginza shopping street.
But most of all…
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 is on my travel blog, The Tokyo Guide I Wish I’d Had. Happy hunting!

Will you ever do a home tour…?? I imagine a room full of display shelves with all your gacha-gacha toys and a picture of you holding a cute feather dust brush.
I see you’ve been to my house already… (=ﾟωﾟ)
OMG. I may have to move back to Japan just to get my mitts on these cuties.
Hawaii needs some choice gachagacha machines, don’t you think?
Dunno. Given the humidity in Puna, they’d probably rust over night and become gagaga machines.
Nice one Jonelle I am going to hunt around for these ones 😉
The only place I’ve seen them is outside a little shop on the Yanaka Ginza shopping street (near Sendagi Station) which is also quite a fun place to walk around. Happy hunting!^^;;
Thanks Jonelle 🙂 xx I will check it out. We have been having a great time here yes it’s a paradise of weirdness (in the best kind of way) hehe
