Sadly, she couldn't catch any, but the paramount beauty of the crane games is that you can have fun with your friends either way!“I won't give up... let’s try this one now!”
The mini crane games that allow three play times with 100 yen are filled with sweets loved by children and adults alike! As a big fan of plum-flavored sweets, she decided to have a rematch with the individually wrapped honey plums crane game. How will the result be...?“Wahoo! It turned out that I managed to win two prizes!🙌 ”
