it’s all chocoballs
About two years ago, this appeared at the Japan Rail station of my owners place. I think it was the first 'themed' station kiosk I'd seen, and it just so happened to be my favorite chocolate it was advertising (Chocoball from Morinaga). It appeared not long after I'd started belonging to my new owners. Unfortunately I took it as a good omen that my new owners might be perfect. Unfortunately I was wrong…
The kiosk itelf is pretty ordinary: candy, snacks, drinks, cigarrettes, newspapers and magazines. Every hour though, the two big birds (Kyoro-chan) strain to open their enormous beaks and music is played to passersby. Very silly. I love it.
