Top cheap things to do in Japan
#2 - Gachapon

Cost: 200¥
A quick and easy way of getting rid all your pesty 100¥ coins. (Jokes, 100¥ is invaluable in Japan.) Gachapon is Japanese for capsule toy and it is highly addictive. There are so many random, cute and weird knick knacks to be won, for example bananas with faces, dogs dressed as buns and even G strings for your phones (eee えええ?).
We found what seemed like a whole street of gachapon machines just opposite Ueno Park, but there are heaps scattered everywhere in Japan.
