Ichiban Kuji is a popular type of lottery or raffle in Japan that is often held by BANDAI to promote their products. The word "Ichiban" means "number one" in Japanese, while "Kuji" refers to the lottery or raffle itself.
In Ichiban Kuji, customers purchase a ticket or a chance to win a prize. The prizes are usually tiered, with the top prizes being the most desirable, and the lower tiered prizes being less valuable. Each ticket or chance has a corresponding letter or number combination that is used to determine which prize the customer will receive.
Ichiban Kuji prizes usually range from A prize to Last One Prize such as cards, plush toys, and figures. The prizes are often themed around popular anime, manga, or video game franchises, and are highly collectible among fans.
Ichiban Kuji is also known for its elaborate displays and promotional materials that are often set up in stores to generate excitement and interest in the lottery. The popularity of Ichiban Kuji has spread beyond Japan and is now enjoyed by fans of Japanese pop culture all over the world.
