Fun for the entire family!

They also came up with a version of the 'Operation!' game that went well beyond tweezers, a red-lightbulb nose and a buzzer with a cartoon-y figure drawn on a board.

Let's just say you've spent a lot of time in Japan and leave it at that, okay?
Great.

To much for Mattel to carry in their line of toys so they were redirected from china to Japan.

You're an idiot. One vending machine sold used panties in Tokyo 10 years ago. Meanwhile everyone from Wifey to Allison Angel sell panties today. But you're the first closet pedo I ever heard say they were children's panties.

Wrong about what exactly? I live in Japan 3 months out of the year, I speak Japanese like a native (*) I have never seen anything unsavory in a vending machine but even if I did what does it matter how something is marketed? Japan censors porno, America doesn't. I'm not down on America (I like porno) I don't understand your basic premise.There is nothing in Japan that isn't in any other modern country.

I spent a little time in Japan too. I found it amusing you could buy "fertility" aids at the local temples but they'd nail your butt for trying to bring in a Playboy magazine.
BTW, I found it refreshing to be able to walk the streets of a city with 3 million people (Nagoya)at night and be completely safe. I wouldn't drive through a small city in central Illinois without locking my car doors.
I worked with Japanese people for nearly 20 years, many of which spoke no English, and my Japanese consists of 'hello''goodbye' and 'thank you very much' but I never had any real trouble in communicating with them.
They are an honorable people, much more so than what I find here in my own country, which is regrettable.

Yea they send me to Gifu that's why I know Nagoya is 'tsumaranai.' But hey even Nagoya beats the daily grind of the American workday.
