I was happy to find the Be Mine Bear shop while I was in Thailand. Finding this shop while traveling was one of my favorite surprises.
I was very excited to find this massive collection of Gashapon in Ximending area in Taipei.
I didn’t think I’d find a Charlie Brown themed cafe but to my surprise, I found one in Bangkok, Thailand!
While I was in Japan, I found out that one of my favorite anime was promoting their latest movie by selling collectible soda cans.
The café is BTS themed. There’s a projector playing BTS music videos, BTS music playing, there’s writing by ARMY all over the walls and there’s a lego mural of the BTS members. All of it is mesmerizing.
I wish there was one Star Avenue in every major city in the U.S. It would draw a crowd, even non-Kpop fans would be intrigued by it.
I was in Tokyo Japan in March so naturally I hit every otaku & anime store, every hobby store and every toy store I could. One of my favorites was Yamashiroya in Ueno. There is where I bought this collectible stacking set called Pitland.
