Sunshine City in Tokyo Part 6: kawaii accessories

This is the last part of our big Sunshine City series. In the last week we’ve shown you lots and lots of pictures from different shops in Tokyo’s huge “city within the city”. So what’s left to show today? Basically everything that didn’t fit into any of our other posts. And that is mainly general shop impressions or very kawaii accessories. It is amazing to see how crowded those shops are. They are filled with cuteness on every centimeter.

Super kawaii Rilakkuma movies

There are millions of pictures of the lazy Rilakkuma bear, but don’t you sometimes wish you could see him “in action”? San-X has put quite a few super cute Rilakkuma movies on their website, where the little bear and his friends come to life. The movies are super short, just 2 or 3 seconds long. They revolve around Rilakkuma’s daily activities: eating, sleeping and being lazy. To celebrate the Aloha Rilakkuma collection there are even two videos, in which the bear is hula dancing. Very kawaii. What do you think about the videos?

On the San-X website you can find many kawaii short movies about Rilakkuma

When we visited Tokyo’s Sunshine City during one of our last business trips of course we also saw lots of shops and products with our favourite characters. So today we show you some pictures we took with Rilakkuma, Hello Kitty, My Melody and so on. In such a huge shopping complex there is room for the craziest products and it’s always super impressive to see so many products with one character on the same spot. It’s almost impossible to choose your favourite product then, because all of them are so cute.

Sunshine City in Tokyo Part 3: fabrics and fashion

Today we show you lots of cute fabrics and fashion accessories that we discovered when visiting Sunshine City during one of our last business trips to Tokyo. Japan is the home of kawaii, so of course we saw lots of super cute outfits in the shops. Everything from head to toe is super cute, there were tons of adorable socks for example.

If you like to sew yourself Sunshine City is the place for you too, because you can get lovely fabrics, buttons, ribbons and all the accessories you need there. We spotted lots of echino fabrics that we also sell in our online shop.

Sunshine City in Tokyo Part 2: chocolate and cookies

Time to show you more impressions of our trip to Sunshine City during one of our last business trips to Tokyo. Last time we showed you lots of bento accessories, this time it’s about chocolates, cookies and sweets. There are hundreds of super cute cookie and chocolate molds in the craziest and funniest shapes. Like the kawaii worm molds that make the most adorable chocolates. It was one of our favourites. It was really cool that there were lots of chocolates showing you what the shapes from the different molds look like.

We also spotted lots of cute cafes, here we show you the kawaii monchhichi shop. We didn’t buy anything there, but it definitely looks inviting.

Sunshine City in Tokyo Part 1: Bento accessories

During our last business trips to Japan we also visited Sunshine City. The super big complex is Tokyo’s first city within the city and contains lots of shops, restaurants, an aquarium, planetarium, museum, indoor theme park, a hotel and offices.

We were interested in looking at the shops to find kawaii products and were super impressed. It was a shopping paradise! We took so many pictures of all the things that we decided to split them up into different themed blog posts, so that you can see all of them. Today we’ll start with bentos and kitchen accessories. It’s so amazing how much super cute stuff they have there: thousands of chopsticks, bento boxes and all the bento accessories you could imagine.

kawaii Korea

Japan is the home of kawaii, so it’s no big surprise that we mainly go on business trips to Japan to see the latest kawaii trends. But some other countries are really catching up. Some time ago we visited a trade show in Korea and of course also strolled through lots of shops to see what they offer. We discovered lots and lots of kawaii products that were very adorable. Especially cellphone accessories are a super big thing over there. Check out the cutest ones we found:

Tokyo Gift Show Impressions

A couple of weeks ago part of our team flew to Japan and visited the Tokyo International Gift Show. You might have seen one or two pictures on Facebook already, but now we selected a few more to show you. Taking pictures on the Gift Show is really not easy, because you’re only allowed to take pictures of shows, but not of the exhibition booths. If you try to, security is there right away. Still we managed to photograph secretly to get some general impressions. One of the highlights was of course to see Rilakkuma and friends. They were dressed in Hawaii outfits, as this is the theme of the newest Rilakkuma collection that we will have in our shop soon.

New Hello Kitty and Rilakkuma Re-Ments announced

These two new sets get you in the mood for spring. The Japanese miniature manufacturer Re-Ment announced two new sets to be released soon.

The super kawaii Hello Kitty cherry blossom Re-Ment consists of traditional Japanese candies, bentos and dishes that are popular for taking to the Hanami picnics. Everything is in the shape of Hello Kitty and therefore looks super adorable. It will be available in Japan on March 3rd.

The Aloha Rilakkuma Re-Ment is from the new Hawaii collection and will be released on the 25th of February. The eight different sets contain a lot of Rilakkuma foods like waffles, burgers or shaved ice, but also typical Hawaii symbols like flowers or a ukulele.

We will have both sets in our shop and hope we receive them soon.
