Some delve into the past. paying large sums of money for a toy or two either from their childhood or maybe one that just catches their eye. These toys are usually hard to find and expensive or difficult to come by.
However, if you are a Japanese toy collector, fan or just have a casual interest in the past, you will want to check out “Japanese Toys: From Kokeshi to Kaiju” a new exhibit in, of all places, Terminal 3 of the San Francisco International Airport. The exhibit runs through April 2014 and contains so many vintage and rare items that it is like walking down a path to an amazing display of nostalgia and the crazy, imaginative world of Japan.
