Do you carry authentic Amuse plushies?


Yes! We are an authorized retailer of Amuse products in the United States, and import our plushies directly from Amuse in Tokyo, Japan. We will always let you know when a plushie or collectible comes from Amuse: it will be listed prominently in the item description. You can make sure your Amuse plushie is authentic by checking its tags: an authentic Amuse product will always display a QR code on the back of one of the tags! (This is a great way to weed out "black market" dupes... Not that you'd ever dream of buying your Amuse anywhere other than Tanoshii Miami, of course! ;) )




Do all your products come from Japan?


All our products and collections are inspired by Japan and by Japanese kawaii and arcade culture. The majority of our plushies, gashapon, and collectibles are imported directly from Japan, from the likes of Amuse, Takara TOMY, Epoch, and SK Japan. We will always let you know when we've sourced an item from Japan. Just keep in mind that some items made for our partners may have been manufactured in other countries, just for them. We may occasionally carry products from brands that are not Japanese, but are, like us, influenced by Japanese culture and aesthetics, and that we think are a good fit for us and for our customers.




Will you carry my product in your online store?


We curate our capsule collections very carefully and somewhat strategically, and source in limited quantities, so we won't often be able to carry unsolicited merchandise. That said, if you make art toys or goods that you think would fit right in with the rest of the Tanoshii Miami catalog, shoot us an email at konnichiwa@tanoshiimiami.com. You never know!




Do you sell wholesale?


No, we do not sell wholesale at this time.




Why is your mascot a fox?


Our mascot, Tanoshii Kitsune, is a Japanese red fox, or kitsune (きつね). Kitsune guardian at Fushimi Inari shrine in Kyoto, Japan In Japanese folklore, kitsune are depicted as wise, magical beings who have the ability to shapeshift into human form, occasionally leading to trickery and hijinks. At the same time, kitsune are revered in the Shinto religion, as they are the faithful guardians and messengers of Shinto deity Inari. If you've ever traveled to the Fushimi Inari Shinto shrine in Kyoto, you'll have noticed the hundreds upon hundreds of kitsune statues lining the path to the top of Mount Inari. Now you know why! Our Tanoshii Kitsune is a fun, somewhat mischievous little fox, loyal guardian of our shop's stock, and always-faithful brand messenger.

What is gashapon?


Gashapon (ガシャポン) are capsule toys dispensed from vending machines found in arcades, stores, shopping malls, restaurants, and even on the street in Japan. They're generally much better quality than any capsule toy you might find stateside and, since they're often released in limited sets and quantities, can even be relatively expensive. Many gashapon are licensed from popular manga, anime, and video game franchises, though they come in all kinds of quirky flavors: we've seen sumo wrestler sets, scantily-clad ladies, sushi rolls featuring cats as filling... The possibilities are truly endless. The word gashapon is Japanese onomatopoeia for the sound capsule toys make when they're dispensed: gasha is the sound of the machine being cranked, and pon is the sound the capsule makes when it drops. (We know you're totally sounding it out right now.)
