If you’ve been to Tokyo chances are you’ve heard of the First Avenue shopping mall also known as Character Street. If you haven’t been, it’s definitively a perfect place to find cute goods from Rilakkuma to Hello Kitty, Tamagotchi to Pokemon its got them all! First Avenue is located in the basement of the Yaesu side of Tokyo Station. Right now they’re celebrating their 10th anniversary! Don’t forget to check out the Marunouchi side of Tokyo Station (pictured above), it’s beautiful!
In celebration of the 10th Anniversary there is a Rilakkuma display right in the middle of the mall for a short time!
Every shop seems to have some merchandise for Tokyo Station! The Lemon Series is out for Rilakkuma but they still have both their Tokyo Station plushies and lots more. Kapibarasan is holding the cheapest ticket to Tokyo Station and is dressed as a Station Master. Kapibarasan is also celebrating his 10th Anniversary this year with all his friends!
The Pokemon Store also has lots of goodies just for Tokyo Station and this store is just a small taste of whats available in Pokemon Centers~ The mascot for this one is Police Pikachu right now!
If you’re a fan of Tamagotchi seeing the history of the different Tamagotchi devices is very exciting and it’s funny to see the 1998 ones I use to play with. Their Tokyo design for merch is pretty cute and in Tokyo stores only! I hope you get the chance to check out all the decorations around the station and the stores!
