On our recent trip to Japan, Nicolette and I managed to catch a bit of both the Halloween and Christmas fun. Here’s a few photos we took of the cute Christmas products at our favourite kawaii shops!
The first festive displays we saw were at the Pokemon Center DX as the Pokemon Cafe was already getting into the Christmas spirit with an adorable knitted theme.
The products turned up in the stores soon after including these very detailed Pikachu plushies. They make my 15 year old Christmas ‘Chu look super basic. You can buy some of the Christmas range online from Japan Stuffs and the Pokemon Center USA.
Sumikko Gurashi Shop
This was our first visit to the new Sumikko Gurashi shop in Tokyo Station and it was a dream come true for two Sumikko fans. Who else wants this Christmas tree?
The Christmas plushies weren’t on sale yet but they did have these fun stockings filled with snacks. Everything is now sold out online, sorry.
Rilakkuma Store / Kiddyland
We spent rather a lot of time at various Rilakkuma Stores and the huge Kiddyland in Harajuku and couldn’t resist a look at the Christmas plush the morning they went on sale.
One of my favourite purchases was this stand up decoration, which is on my mantelpiece. We did buy quite a few other things and we’ll be sharing photos on Instagram over the holidays if you’d like to see. Our dress-up Rilakkuma & Kogumachan have two new festive outfits each!
SCK Holiday Schedule
We won’t be posting on Christmas Day, Boxing Day or January 1st but should have posts on most other days including our staff picks of the year. Hope you have a super cute and relaxing break too!
