Well-known capsule machines, AKA Gachapon. You can see gachapon throughout the city, even in Akihabara, but only here is there an array of more than 400 of them! This is the sacred spot that overseas figure-lovers always visit.
Lots of anime and video game characters, new and old, are displayed together here.
Put in a coin, turn the lever, and...out pops a treasure！ Each machine has a lineup of about six different types. Which one you get is up to luck!
Miniature images such as traditional Japanese artwork, famous swords, and images of Buddha are also popular. Line them up in your room and complete your own miniature art gallery!
We even have models of Japanese food, all the way to tempura. And they’re very elaborate. We suggest using them as souvenirs of your visit to Japan.
Body stickers of Naruto, popular even overseas. Capsule contents aren’t limited to figurines. Part of the appeal of gachapon is the variety of goods you can find inside!
In line with the most recent trend, we also have items that work together with your smartphone exclusively at arcade cabinets.
The electronics allow you to use a smartphone or special arcade cabinet to read QR codes printed on the underside of disks obtained from gachapon and take up their challenge.
We also have machines filled with “Kamen Rider” goods that connect to specially-sold toys.
A display case filled with the contents of capsules which we used to sell. Here you can see treasures from capsules which are no longer possible to find.
These mushroom figures are so lifelike that you’d mistake them for real. But it looks like some other things are mixed in there, too! You can use this display as a reference for decorating your house.
New gachapon contents are unveiled on a quick cycle, and half the contents of the machines at Akihabara Gachapon Hall are replaced approximately every month. Akiba merchandise is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Instantly buy the one you like or regret it forever. That’s the unbreakable rule of the Akiba connoisseur.
