I hope you’re all well? Today I have my second Hyper Japan post from this years summer festival, covering all the fun and fancy things I had the chance to purchase! So let’s jump on in!
First things first, having purchased a super yummy lunch from Yo!Sushi they had some fab cool bags for £2.00 – it’s a really big bag which is perfect for keeping my breakfast, lunch and any snacks in one place during a work day. Yo!Sushi also kindly gave me a cardboard miso pot as I said how cute the little kitty design was on it – I’m going to use to store either pens or brushes in.
Check out this funny little cool bear on the side of the bag – he’s pretty fun!
Next we have some free magazines I was given – these are a pretty investing read and are published every month.
JP Books had some fun Rilakkuma stickers for £1.00 each – I’ve already stuck these to Rocky – One says something along the lines Mischief is banned and the other Viva being lazy!
From Something Kawaii I bought a Luna Sailor Moon twinkle dolly charm – I’m a little annoyed that we found these much cheaper later (from looking at the label they have been reduced from £12.00 once already). Still, I’m happy that I managed to get one of these – I’d of been disappointed if I’d missed out.
Minaturely tablet – another for my collection! It’s pretty cute, and fits in nicely with my other Sailor Moon tablet cases.
Leaflet and post card from Azumi Inoue and Yuyu’s performance. These are adorable, they have a description of the both songstresses on the insides in different languages.
The leaflets also fold out into a mini poster.
The Japan foundation gave us both a leaflet on learning Japanese and a fluffy little thing!
Some cute leaflets.
Nintendo were handing out paper masks of Jibanyan and leaflets – the leaflets have a Pokemon download gift on the back and have some fun information on new Nintendo games coming up.
From NHK live I received a balloon, postcard, some leaflets and stickers for entering their survey contest – I was given a spin on the tombolla and this was the prize!
Wig comb – I’ve been meaning to buy one of these for absolutely ages – shockingly I don’t own any kind of wig brush or comb so this was a bargain for £2.00.
I picked up this amazing Totoro curtain, this will be going on a wall very soon!
Charming Sushi gave me a replacement stand for my damaged Neptune and a free headphone socket plug – its Sailor Neptunes talisman mirror.
I purchased another Girls Memory figure from Charming Sushi too – this one is Sailor Saturn and she cost £20.00. These are so beautiful and well made, I’m only short Sailor Pluto now for the outer senshi but I’m having trouble finding her.
From Tofu Cute I decided to stock up on some delicious Japanese candy – they had some of my favourites in stock – konpeito and the panda biscuits! I’m very fond of the Meiji chocolate and puccho too. The Pokemon candy is a fruit sherbet tasting stick, the little twin stars candy were another fruit based chalky candy and the coffee eat were super tasty chocolate covered coffee beans.
I couldn’t resist buying a super cute bunny necklace from Fuzzballs – the owner very kindly gave me the adorable stickers too. I’ve already worn the necklace quite a lot as it goes with so many outfits and it’s definitely become one of my favourites. I’m definitely going to be purchasing one of their awesome t-shirts in the very near future, but it’s so hard to decide which one as they are all so cute!
I also picked up an Inside Japan tours brochure to have a look at to see about booking a holiday to Japan next year – another booth was also handing out leaflets about Japan Travel Sims – this is quite useful to read about as not all UK networks work in Japan/some networks abroad cost an extortionate amount in roaming charges.
I picked up a lucky bag from the Japan Centre after seeing Littlest Sisters! They came in very cute little bags and for £12 were absolute stuffed to the brim with mystery!
Inside! A kawaii little squirrel plushie keying and tons of candy! This was such good value and I’ll definitely buy one of these again if they have them at the Japan Centre or again at Hyper Japan – even better though this particular one had two of my favourites in, Oreo/Cookies & cream pocky and panda cookies! Woo!
I’m really happy with all of my purchases/freebies – I didn’t spend as much as I was expecting to, but I’m pleased that I picked just a few things that I really wanted instead of just buying lots of little things.
So did any of you go shopping at Hyper Japan? What did you get? Did I miss anything? Let me know in the comments below!
Ta-ta for now,
