Spoon & Tamago direct our attention to a train station in the Chiyoda ward of Tokyo, famed for its electronics stores and tiny speciality stalls selling anything and everything with the same microcosm of offerings contained in this massive wall of gachapon vending machines—see previously.
Designed and branded as Kenelstand by Akira Mabucho, these surreal souvenirs are targeted towards adults with some practical items and many more tiny, collectible keepsakes like miniature versions of bespoke furniture, other luxury goods—at times bordering on the surreal—and a range of domestic and international tourist attractions. Much more to explore at the links above.
