Fetishism in the Japanese is highly developed and reaches interesting heights to say the least. The strong success of the Kawaii style is in fact linked to the appeal of childhood, an age where everything is allowed, before becoming part of a strict system that does not admit mistakes.

The Japanese are true admirers of these gadgets that cross different generations and both genders.
