Japanese toy display at San Francisco Airport

San Francisco has long been a progressive city, with a huge art scene, but even I was surprised when I saw this amazing, and huge display of Japanese toys while walking through the airport to catch my connecting flight. The display showed an amazing amount of toys from Japan’s history, from before the turn of the last century, to the golden age of Japan’s toy boom of the 1950’s and 1960’s, such as Godzilla and Ultraman. Plus their display included Hot Couture Hello Kitty dresses and even old park and Carnival rides in the shape of popular Japanese TV characters. And did I mention this was in an airport?

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, and “ooooh”, and “ahhhh”, as much as the people walking by did on their rush to catch their next flight. For once I was glad I had some time between my connecting flights. Enjoy.
