The upcoming remake of Final Fantasy VII has joined forces with an iconic landmark in Tokyo.Continue reading Tokyo Skytree x Final Fantasy VII Remake Collaboration
Today we went to Tokyo Skytree to check out the amazing stores there…but really to try and find a Mimikyu plushie at the Pokemon Centre. (SPOILER: They were all sold out). We found an amazing Studio Ghibli store, had some lunch and heaps of other cool stuff. Oh, and towards the end, our camera broke 🙁 So that night we had to rush to Akihabara to buy a new one!
And this just in…myself and my waifu are headed to Japan for a long overdue holiday and to tick some things off our bucketlist, namely spending Christmas and New Year’s Eve in Tokyo.
We don’t really have an agenda as such for this trip, it’ll be more of a “what are we doing today?” kind of scenario which is something we’re both very cool with. The only things we have on the To Do list so far is ice skating at the Tokyo Skytree and living out our Yuri On Ice moments, buying a Mimikyu plushie, going to Winter Comiket and spending Xmas Day at Tokyo Disneyland which we’re really excited about!
Something new that I’ll be doing which I’ve never done before is a daily vlog which will be uploaded at the end of each day or at some point in the evening. I’ll be posting my usual pictures and what not to social media but the vlogging is still very new to me and Japan seems like an ideal place to record some memories from each day that I hope you’ll enjoy watching. The vlogs will be posted to my Youtube channel:
I’d love to see that number of 223 subscribers increase while we’re over there so I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed! I’ll post links to all my social media channels below so if you’re not following me yet, you have no excuse now 🙂
NOW LET THE COUNTDOWN BEGIN!
Anyone who’s ever gone to Japan and loves Pokemon would have checked out one of the many Pokemon Centres littered around the place. You can find some really cool exclusives in there plus they’re just really cute to visit as well. There’s news of a new Pokemon Centre opening in Tokyo conveniently located in the middle of a relatively new attraction, the Tokyo Skytree. I’m particularly happy at these news as the Skytree is in our neighbourhood whenever we visit Japan so it’ll be really close to us!
The Pokemon Centre will be located in the Solamachi entertainment complex and it isn’t going to be a smaller type of store. It’s reported as being one of the Tokyo Pokemon Centre Megastores so this means it’s going to be jam packed with goodies that some of the smaller stores don’t carry. Something unique to each store is the logo that promotes it and this one is no different with Pikachu riding on the back of a Rayquaza, a legendary Pokemon.
The store opens for business on July 6th so start getting your wallet ready for a hurting 🙁
