This is the one that probably doesn’t need to be introduced.

Gashapon offers miniature capsule collectables and vending machines. Simply insert token in the machine, make a wish and turn the handle for a surprise collectable. Endless themes, designs, and characters available to choose from: anime characters, kawaii items, animals and extremely limited-edition toys.
