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.

Toy Hunting in Tokyo Part 1: KIDDYLAND and Toy Sapiens Store in Harajuku

Going to Harajuku and searching for toys? Prepare your pockets because you might go crazy over all the original merchandise from different makers / companies!

As a frequent Harajuku visitor (and a tour guide of my friends going to Tokyo for almost four years), I would always recommend KIDDY LAND store along Omotesando.

Harajuku’s Landmark Toy Paradise, the KIDDY LAND flagship store, is not just for kids.

As they promise, “KIDDY LAND magic memory,” both kids and grownups feel right at home here because they will find things that are for their kids’ as well as for themselves. The goods you will find here are constantly changing and the number of items growing with each visit. From character items to special, limited items, you will be able to find here and there is something for everyone.
