Lawson Conbini has a whole campaign of goods especially made for the Otaku out there. Here's a sampling on the newspaper they hand out to you. (For an unembeddable link, click here.)

In unrelated news, a friend of my brother's is an avid Kokeshi Kollector and she specifically asked for a 通信こけし (Yubin-Kokeshi or Post Office Kokeshi). I'm not sure if this is what she had in mind but it is kind of cute. When I got it, I hemmed and hawed a "Meh" until a student pointed out to me that there's a secret compartment within that you can write a message upon! Then attach an address to the doll, put on a 120￥ stamp and you have the proverbial message in a bottle sent by Japan Post.
