Called Kenelestand, the slick-looking gachapon area was designed by well-known designer Akira Mabuchi.

As Spoon & Tamago points out, what makes these capsule toys so interesting is that they are aimed at adults, instead of children. For example, there are miniature sake bottles, small pieces of designer furniture, and tiny kitchen utensils. Let’s take a look!
