The claw cranes (or widely known as UFO catchers) of various arcades in Japan lure people with awesome goodies as prizes — from good quality plush toys, figurines and other merchandise of famous cartoon and anime characters. Being extremely risk averse and knowing my capabilities, I dared not try them out — we’re talking ¥100 for every failure! Fortunately he seemed to be good at it, so we came back with something every time — the most successful being a One Piece figurine.
Here’s what he let me have. My new bag charm consists of a rabbit in pink pajamas, a white cow (or is it a horse?) with purple ears and hoofs and a bear with a hat.
