Magical Kawaii Collectibles (Sailormoon & Cardcaptor Sakura) From Kotobukiya & ANIMATE Akihabara


Hello everybody!

Kaila here, your resident Kawaii toy hoarder! :))

I went to Kotobukiya Akihabara last week and I realized that it is a heaven for Cardcaptor Sakura, Sailormoon, Creamy Mami, and more!

If you love all things ota-cute, a trip to Kotobukiya is definitely worth your trip! :)

You can buy original merch from KIDDYLAND Harajuku and from chosen Village Vanguard branches.

When I visited Kyoto, I discovered a “Donguri Garden” shop. They also have one in Tokyo Station (Tokyo Character Street area). : )

For the shop list of their official goods shop, check this link for a list of Donguri branches.
