In Japan, people like to collect these charms and straps. There are SO many different kinds of straps with different characters, from different places, doing different things... I think these charms and straps are a good way of expressing one's interests and personalities... but that's jsut me. I am really into these these and have been collecting them for a while. Here is my Fukuoka collection :)
Edamame (soybean) Mameshiba
These animated beans talk and tell you very disturbing information.
