We made another stop at Ikebukuro, which was a good idea because we managed to catch the tail end of Tokyu Hands Ikebukuro’s Cat Festival — where a lot of independent creators and small ateliers made catcentric merch that was like catnip for me ❤
The shop will feature a special line-up of exclusive merch designed including tote bags, wrist watches, knit caps, t-shirts, necklaces and rings.
If you think you’re immune to cute, we dare you to walk into a Tokyu Hands branch and not buy anything.
Attending new events are always a revelation, and we just love how Japan’s WCS Finals turned out.
For you budding doujinka, Tokyu Hands Ikebukuro also has a vast array of artists tools made especially for creating manga.
Aside from food and shopping, Sunshine Street is actually a pretty entertaining place, with plenty of arcades, cinemas, and bars.
We dropped by Akihabara and do some shopping. And by “shopping”, I mean spending a nice chunk of change at some anime goods stores and second-hand shops. I regret nothing.
The goal of Tokyo Big Sight’s exhibit was to showcase Tokyo’s many attractions, as well as collect messages of hope and encouragement for the victims of the March 2011 disasters.
I swear to god — something like this can only happen in Japan. Tokyo is made up of win and awesome.
