Originally, production was dominated by Germany, however, Japan's cheaper costs allowed its market to grow. Aimed at the American consumer, manufacturers constructed them from tin plate. Japan's production increased after WWII, and remained the world's largest manufacturer in the metal toy industry until the mids. Companies in Japan utilized technologies such as chromolithography and punch machines to create imaginative, precise toys in bright, appealing colors.

During my vacation in Japan last year, I traveled to Nakano Broadway, the Tokyo shopping arcade sometimes called "the mini- Akihabara. I arrived at Nakano Station mid-morning and walked north. Within five minutes, I had passed through a "normal" shopping arcade and entered the Nakano Broadway mall area. There were manga and toy stores everywhere! Unfortunately, they were all closed.
