The shop where now I will introduce is a representative selected character goods shop KIDDY LAND HARAJUKU which is developing worldwide. Here in this shop, you can get not only the representative characters in Japan such as Rilakkuma and Hello Kitty but also Disney or GHIBLI’s collections. And 6-language-spoken staff is always welcomes customers, so foreign tourists can shop around easily. Then, let’s explore in the shop.
When I enter the shop, Doraemon, which is one of the top anime characters in Japan, welcomes me first（taken on March 4, 2016）. I can be healed only when I watch it.
There are 5 floors; from B1 to the 4th in the building.KIDDY LAND HARAJUKU is the biggest Selected Character Shop which includes SNOOPY TOWN shop, Hello Kitty shop, and Rilakkuma store.
The stairs of each floor are decorated with characters like this picture above. Only just walking makes you fun. In addition, I am a man so I can’t enter, but I heard the women’s bathrooms are decorated with ‘Kawaii’characters, too.
I went up to Hello Kitty shop on the 4th floor. The Japanese-style kitty (Hello Kitty Chirimen Doll, the picture above) is especially popular among foreign tourists and I found many foreigners bought them.
The feature only in HARAJUKU is that you can enjoy looking for Ko-Rilakkuma, which is one of the popular character series‘Rilakkuma’, hiding under the arch or the objects in the shop. When you visit here, please try Ko-Rilakkuma Hunting.
When I went to the 3rd floor, I found a wall of ‘Licca-chan’ who was really loved by Licca fans. I recommend you to take a picture here and post it on SNS and so on. Next to this wall, there is a rare showcase of ‘Licca-chan.’ When you visit, please check it out by yourself.
When I went down to the 2nd floor, Totoro, which is JIBRI’s top character, welcomed me. Whenever I look, it heals us.
What do you think about KIDDY LAND HARAJUKU? This is a shop where I recommend everyone for sightseeing or dating. In the building, as I showed you, the bathrooms, the stairs, and also cashiers are decorated with vivid and fun designs so that even if the people who are not interested in Sanrio or Disney visit here, they can enjoy, I suppose. Moreover, the feature of this shop is that there are many spots where you want to post the pictures on SNS. If you are interested in various popular characters worldwide, or you want to inform some pictures of Japanese ‘kawaii’ culture to the world, why don’t you visit KIDDY LAND HARAJUKU once?
