I’m still recovering from the cold that I picked up in Japan (which luckily didn’t strike fully until I was back), but here are a few stray things that I saw while there.
A vending machine of Snoopy charms. (There were also similar “Gacha capsule” machines with three Snoopy figures.)
All the arcades there are filled with claw-type machines called UFOs, and some are nothing but. I saw a few built around Peanuts-y prizes.
Kids’ pyjamas. Not in my size, aaugh!
The Uniqlo store chain had their own Peanuts apparel, focused on skateboarding and surfing. Not riding a board of any sort, I avoided the temptation.
I found myself faced with this Charlie Brown when I was headed down the stairs out of the train station by the stadium where the Marines baseball team plays.
