Ya know all the stories you hear about all the odd vending machines one can find in the nooks and crannies of Japan? Here’s one of them. Years back, while I was working in Oaska, ol’ friend Jim came out to visit. He, Ako, and I went on a backstreet tour (cause’ that’s where you find the good stuff) where we stumbled upon the “Marine Catcher”. We were hungry so we put in our coins and went fishing. This is actually the same machine as one of those games where you try to retrieve a stuffed animal with a robot arm, sept here you're gunning for live lobsters. We didnt catch anything so we went for okonomiyaki instead.
