What Are Gachapon? – Episode 190
You’ll see them everywhere throughout Japan during your visit. These small white coloured machines that spit out the most random assortment of stuff you’ve ever seen.
They’re called gachapon.
These wildly popular capsule machines are an easy and fun way to part with your coins before leaving Japan. In this episode, we talk all about these magnificent toys and where you’ll find them during your travels in Japan and Tokyo Disneyland.

I was surprised that there were/are fewer capsule machines at the Disney Resort, than I thought there would be. But hey – you travel outside of the Tokyo Disney area, and those yen-taking things are everywhere else in Tokyo. And beyond, lol.Thanks for the episode on them!
