All About Tokyo Character Street in Tokyo Station

Japan, Tokyo Guide (B): All About Tokyo Character Street in Tokyo Station

Many character item shops gather in the floor, and importantly, all of them are official shops of the characters!

I have a lot to talk about it, so I recommend 6 of the shops with photos and shop info this time. I list the other shops as well, and explanations and photos of them will be on the next post.

The biggest Pokemon official shop in Japan is Pokemon Center Mega Tokyo in Ikebukuro. There are Pokemon Centers and Pokemon Stores in Japan, and Pokemon Stores are smaller than Pokemon Centers.

This Pokemon Store has the latest Pokemon official items as well as Pokemon Centers, even if it doesn't have all the items.

Tip: You will find the signatures of Junichi Masuda, Tsunekazu Ishihara and Shoko Nakagawa, who are all Pokemon related people back of this Station Master Pikachu. See the proof here!

There are two tamagotchi official stores; One is Tamagotchi Department Store in Harajuku, and Tamagotchi Store in Tokyo Character Street is the other.

Tamagotchi Store Tokyo has limited items, too. Tamagotchi Department Store has its limited items inspired by Harajuku pop culture, but in Tokyo Character Street, you will find designs of tamagotchi with Tokyo Tower, and Station Master Kuchipatchi items.  ......
