Tamagotchi Department Store in Harajuku

Tamagotchi was first sold in 1996 as it was created by Akihito of WiZ and Aki Maita of Bandai. When we were kids, it was actually one of the biggest toy trends. That was the time when internet is still booming and having a virtual pet was definitely a benchmark. (I remember having it in pink and never wanting to leave home without feeding my pet. -Ashley)

harajuku.jpg Trivia: The term tamagotchi is a portmanteau of the words “tamago” which means egg in Japanese, and the english word “watch”. Japanese characters don’t have “tch”, just chi. Thus the name, tamagotchi.
