Happy Valentines Day everyone!!
I’m back from Tokyo Stations’s Rilakkuma Store 5th Anniversary release and boy was the crowd extra rambunctious this time. People usually will push past you and squeeze in front, but this time it was a little more intense, I could tell the Kuma fans really wanted their Marunouchi Tourist! It’s funny how fast it goes, one minute you’re waiting for what feels like an eternity then the next you’re on the other size of the store following the roped path out. Once I leave the store on new release day it always feels like its a dream. It’s truly a fun experience and I hope every Rilakkuma fan has the chance to do it someday!!
Today also happened to be Valentines Day so there were more people around Tokyo Station, there were lines of people around a bunch of the shops and they all had cute Valentines Day items that sold out fast!
The anticipation of whats behind those doors, a lot of people were already there but I find it harder to wake up early when its cold out. I don’t mind it but I do like to get good pictures of the plushies before they let people in otherwise I’m left with only action shots.
Action shots, a bit blurry but people were really grabbing the Marunouchi Tourist faster than I could take a picture. I had a quick look at the Tokyo Station Anniversary trio, I weighed how cute they were to how much both sets of the Stripes Stripes Series are going to be and decided to save up for next month. I also considered getting the medium size of the Marunouchi plush but he’s not as cute as the standard size.
The Rose series is still full in swing and it’s so interesting to see the play sets still there. But recently I’ve been wanting to get the medium size My Only Rilakkuma. I can’t help but hold one every time I see them, so fluffy and just the right size.
I really want Rilakkuma’s shirt, it’s a neat idea to have the same outfit as him. The back of his shirt is a nice little detail, he also has his zipper in the back. We both had our cameras and toured Tokyo together. If you spent over 2,000円 yen you would get the free pin. This Rilakkuma just happens to be that amount but it’s never hard to spend 2,000円 in a Rilakkuma Store!
I feel like I should be looking forward to more of these kinds of releases, maybe one from each store!? I hope everyone is having/had a great Valentines Day with Rilakkuma! What do you guys think about the Tokyo Station releases?
