New Sanrio Asakusa Hello Kitty Gift Store!
Asakusa's Very Own Hello Kitty Gift Store!
Opening just in time for the 2019 Spring Cherry Blossom season, Hello Kitty giant Sanrio is set to open a brand new gift store in the historic Asakusa shopping district! Sporting an apple motif on the first and a massive two-story Hello Kitty design, the new Asakusa Sanrio Gift Gate is meant to please both domestic and foreign travelers alike with an unforgettable Hello Kitty & Sanrio experience. Enjoy a handful of limited character goods and exclusive products for the store, including Cinamoroll, Gudetama, My Melody and other Sanrio favorites. Hello Kitty will run the entire first floor with a special
apple theme (Apple Pie's are Kitty's favorite snack after all).
In addition to limited-edition merchandise, the Kitty Store's opening will also be marked with an appearance by Hello Kitty in a decadent Kimono and special edition Hello Kitty Rickshaws. Given that Asakusa is a popular rickshaw and traditional destination for travelers, it makes sense to include a Hello Kitty Rickshaw. With so much hype surrounding Hello Kitty in recent years (including various collaborations and even a permanent cafe in Irvine), it's no shock Hello Kitty is making her way to one of Tokyo's most historic districts.
