Pit Stop At Gift Shops

and this particular gift shop is for all things One Piece, over at Huis Ten Bosch. 
 Get your wallets and purse ready! Let's get ready to do some spending!
 
They have everything you probably want. Confectionaries, items of clothing, stationeries, toys and even stamps! Which we have to absolutely get
plus a postcard. We always make a point to send a postcard to ourselves at each different city we visited when we vacation. It makes nice souvenir for us. ^^
Fancy a snack?
Gotta love this sight. Waiting in line patiently to play that One Piece card game. And gotta love the fact that kids were courteous enough not to hog the machine and let others have a go at it too.
There's a One Piece restaurant too, selling all One Piece inspired menu. We didn't eat there though. We went elsewhere for our lunch.

  1. Reminded me that I saw an Ultraman Shop in Solamachi, Tokyo Sky Tree. Might be a stop for the fam when you come next time. There is an entire "Character Goods" floor.

    1. Neither can I.

      And most Japanese judging from the crown we'd see at the gift shops and the wanton buying. LOL

    1. Not much. Just t-shirts and some skecth books for Raimie.

  4. I have absolutely NO idea what/who One Piece is, but if it makes Lina & Co (and especially Raimie) happy, I'm happy.

    The kids standing in line made me grin. Gotta love Japan! :D

    1. You have to dive in to the world of manga more, my dear Jungle Woman! ;p

    2. Are there any manga without pictures? :-p I kinda like words. See?

    3. There are words in manga too! Well, perhaps not enough for you lah! xD

    4. If you like mystery, you can dive in with "Monster" by Naoki Urasawa. Considered one of the best manga writers and artists out there now. You can also read "Pluto" which was his take on Astro Boy. Really interesting stuff to read, and see. More about dialogue than just full out looking.

      I'll leave you with some words of advice from Penn Jillette, of Penn and Teller. He is pretty smart with this article. At least I think so.

      Give it a try and see what happens. :)

    5. Penn's article is spot on. When I start judging people at what they like to do and it's something I don't understand - I need to remember that article.

    6. I find that it is also great inspiration to get out and try things to try and understand it. ^^

    7. and not make judgement on things we know scant of.

      I wish people in power here would have that kind of mindset.

  6. Although I have never heard of One Piece, I would go in there anyways to see all the cute stuff.

    1. Cute stuff are everywhere in Japan. It takes strong self control not to succumb to the lure and buy everything we see! LOL

      You should totally get him to visit the park (though I wonder whether the One Piece exhibits are permanent?). :)
