Tokyo Harajuku | Childhood Toys and Characters

Harajuku Kiddy Land is probably the most famous and largest retail store selling toys, novelty goods and stationeries in Japan. The founder is Mr. Koichiro Hashidate. 6 floor and 2 basement Kiddy Land building was built in 1966 on Omotesando Harajuku. In the beginning they carry toys and novelty items including many imported stuff for foreigners living near the store. They are one of the few exclusive places selling English books magazines as well. Sometimes people call it Japan's FAO Schwarz. They also introduced St. Valentine’s day and Halloween to Japanese people. People think the Kiddy Land is the gateway to Western modern cultures. Michael Jackson stopped by there during his visit Japan.
