Arcade toys...

Japan LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVES arcades... You can find them on just about every street corner in Sapporo. They are amazing. I have a lot of stories to post about them, but first I had to share these photos I took of one game I recognized from back home... the one where you stick in a quarter (here its 100yen) and then move the robot hand strategically to impossibly pick up big stuffed animals... Only in Japan they not only have the 'kawai' (cute) stuffed animals (and eye balls?) in this photo, but they also have: dum dum dum...........

BLOODY TEDDY BEAR CLAWS!??!?!?!

huh????? yup! you see it right. The photo on the left was the first one I spotted. A big blue kawai teddy bear dripping blood from under his nose.... and hes being consumed by 100's of bloody arms with bloody claws. hrmmmm.... Does anyone else find this a bit strange???








Thennnnn.... a few days later in yet another arcade I found:

The same kawai/cutesy teddy bear arcade game but this time it said in English: "HEAVY BLOOD VER."

And they think the bloody claw/arm game was the light flowing blood version???

Hrmmm....
