Hundreds of young girls swap the contents of their lucky bags ("fukubukuro") outside Shibuya's 109 store in Tokyo on Thursday. Tens of thousands of girls swarmed into the store throughout the day. More than 100 security personnel were on duty to keep things from getting too chaotic. The store is so popular with teenagers that several hundred, including some as young as 14, waited in line from as early as 6 a.m. on Wednesday to take advantage of the sales. The store is holding a one-week sale through Jan 8 with discounts of up to 80%.© Japan Today
