Went shopping today at Yokohama and only had my iphone with me. Here are a few shots from some shops I couldn’t go past without checking the goods. Looks like it is going to be a good year for Rilakkuma, Gachapin, Mameshiba and Ghibli.

Plenty of Ghibli here for everyone.

The material is nice and silky soft on these. They do a good job of making great products.

Irit says:

How do you move the notes around on the photo?

shibuya246 says:

There is no edit function, so you have to move the note before saving. When you hover over the photo you can see the “Add Note” button in the bottom right. Click on that and the box to add text appears in the top left corner of the photo. You should be able hover over that box, click the left button of the mouse and move it. You can enlarge left and down. Tell me if there is a problem. I will be upgrading the annotate note system after I get back from Yokohama. Need to test it a bit more first. :)

I have this Jiji at home.

shibuya246 says:

I bought this one.

Tristan says:

ULTRAMAN!!!!!
I love gacha machines…I spent so much yen on them in my first few days in Tokyo before I realised I shouldnt!!

shibuya246 says:

A never ending money hole. I think I might need to make a Gacha machine ;)

Tristan says:

Totally want these two…Mei and CAT BUS!!!

shibuya246 says:

My favorites. I have a smal Jiji cat from Majo no takyubin, but Totoro is No.1

HELLOSHEENA says:

Love all of them!

Sara Mari says:

I love this post~! Character goods are my favorite things haha. I was just in Yokohama a couple days ago, and went to those same stores as you. Thanks for sharing the photos^^

shibuya246 says:

You are welcome. They are easy stores to wander into, hard stores to pull yourself away from :)

RT @tweetmeme Japan Characters, Japan character goods | Shibuya246 http://bit.ly/7dUNwf It’s good to see fresh new styles for the new year. The Ghibli characters and stories are priceless. I wish the Gacha machines would sell better over here. The ones we have are just cheap and imitation looking. I’d probably go broke, haha trying those out.
Have fun in Yokahama with your family, and take care.

shibuya246 says:

:) Keep an eye on your letter box in the next few days.

whipcracker says:

The ever popular Gacha machines. I wish they were more popular overhere.

whipcracker says:

YIKES!

Brad F. says:

Bizarre facial expressions on those characters in the top photo. Love them though. I’m looking forward to when I’ll have the opportunity to do some shopping there.

shibuya246 says:

bring plenty of cash ;)

Donia says:

NEKOBASU! This brings back highschool memories.

alafista says:

I have one of this at home!! Its my favorite totoro plush.

auTAKU says:

Me too! I have a small grey one and a larger blue one. I love their “fur”, it’s much nicer than the standard material that you find on most other plushes.

shibuya246 says:

The quality does seem to be better than most, doesn’t it. very soft.
