The Best Kawaii Shops Worldwide

Shopping for kawaii?

Here are some of our favourite kawaii shops worldwide, whether you’re a fan of Japanese characters, Korean brands or supporting artists and independent designers. Many of these shops are recommended by the SCK staff who have personally shopped there, while others have been featured regularly on our blog. We feel confident that they all sell quality, licensed products with good customer service. Of course, you should still do your own research before ordering!

Shops are organised by their shipping location, but many will ship worldwide. Please note that international shipping may currently be limited due to the pandemic. Some links are affiliate links – SCK receives a small commission from your clicks and orders at no cost to you, which helps us fund this site.
