Akihabara Gachapon Kaikan (ガチャポン会館) is a store with shelf after shelf full of gacha pon machines that reach upto the roof. They dispense lots of manga character toys, assembly required figures, keychains trinkets and a lot more.

There’re almost 350 gacha pon machines in this store, most of them are in the 100-200 JPY range. But you can also find rarer or better quality items in the 300-500 JPY range. So remember to bring lots of 100-yen coins and you will have a nice time trying to get the prize you really want. Those pre-packaged toys are nice souvenirs for a friend when you return back home.

In this store new products come in each month, so there’re always fans trying to score those new anime and manga characters or animals or even toy like tiny bowls of ramen!

WARNING: Gacha pon can be quite addictive!!
