  • Capsule toys. Also known as gachapon or gacha.

    Usually the toys are small or disassembled figurines, cell phone charms, or key chains. The toys are each kept inside a small plastic bubble, and one random capsule will be dropped out of the machine after the consumer inserts the right amount of money and turns the knob all the way around (like a gumball machine). Most gashapon cost ¥100.
