Local pachinko parlor auxiliary unit TUC Shop (TUCショップ) – a changer of pachinko prizes into cash (as gambling for money is generally illegal in most parts of Japan – offers common gardenias (kuchinashi in Japanese) to regulars and neighbours… perhaps as a ‘thank you’ perhaps as enticement, possibly as appeasement or weird CSR project.
