Yup, simple as that. Now we can take credit cards at our store. But wait! We have been taking credit cards for years since we started our business when Magiranger was airing here in Japan (was it 2005?) . So what is so special about this?
Yes, we have been able to process your credit cards but only through Paypal. But there was always a same issue bothered our customers (specially new customers to use us...) wether they should have a paypal account or not. Our customers do not have to have a paypal account and they can still use their credit cards at our site with Paypal's "External Gateway" service. Nice, right? But not so...
It is always nice to have another option to use any services I believe, however, it has been a kind of showdown for our new and first customers who is not really familiar with "Paypal" services at all. No wonder our new customers get puzzled when it comes to their checkout pages and see "Paypal" logo and some cases they just gave up our services :(
Thanks to Stripe.com, now we can simply accept your credit cards (Visa, Master, Amex and Debit cards) without worrying about wether you should use Paypal or not. Of course you we continue to use Paypal Payments but as I said, it is always nice to have a backup plan :)

Mr. Wakafuji is our toku friend here in Matsuyama, and we have been working together for quite some time now since we met at our ex-Okaido Store in 2011. His vast toku related toy-collections easily go over 40,000 and one of his main businesses has been to rent his precious collection to companies, local governments nationwide. "Hero Star", another part of his business operations, has been closed since last May 2016, and many of his local toku friends and fans have been waiting patiently for the new start of his bar, and we learned this today that his tokusatsu bar will be re-opened again on December 20th 2016 in the center of Matsuyama Downtown, with the size of 854 sq ft, well enough to hold a mini live concert with Anime & Tokusatsu Karaoke.

As we get many Tokusatsu related toys from our wholesalers, what we called them as "Toymen" every Friday, we open the new toys and demo them LIVE on our Youtube Live Channel every Saturday 2 to 4 PM JST. Since our live show is in Japan Standard Time, not too many people can attend the show or watch it live but we sincerely hope the following list of our show videos will help our friends and customers to watch and enjoy them.

"Today's Arrivals" is a series of our live stream videos to show off what we have received on Fridays. Because most of the new Tokudatsu toys are introduced and started selling on weekends, the new toys arrive to our store on Friday and we show the newly arrived items right out of the boxes on their arrivals at our store. Check out our "Today's Arrivals" and be the first to know the new toy arrivals in your town :)
