Osaka Sofubi Toy Factory Visit (with video)

Tokyo isn't the only place in Japan with sofubi factories. As I recently discovered, toys are also being made in the heart of downtown Osaka, in a toy factory run by Jungle. It's in the Nipponbashi district, which is home to many toy shops, maid cafes, and more vending machines than you can throw a stick at. Which you should never do, because vending machines are lovely, and sensitive.

Jungle has a very big toy shop nearby, and they put on toy shows once in a while.

This is a working factory, but they let me shoot a short video, which was cool. Here it is:

If you want to get in touch with them, there's contact info here. In the past, they've had folks working there who speak English, so it may be easy to communicate with them via e-mail.
