Ulan's Report: sanrio vivitix

Tenjin Chikagai
We visited the Tenjin Chikagai (Tenjin underground shopping center) in Tenjin, Chuo-ku, Fukuoka. As it connects the Tenjin Subway Station with the Nishitetsu Fukuoka station, its really convenient. On a rainy day you can pass through, avoid getting wet and go to lots of different places. With around 150 shops, there's so much to see and do!



Out of all the shops to choose from, the store that I want to tell you about today is called "sanrio vivitix," which sells all kinds of kawaii goods and characters from brands like HELLO KITTY and MY MELODY!

Aril's Report: Tabio HOMME

Tenjin Chikagai
When you say Fukuoka, one of the first things that comes to mind is the "Tenjin Chikagai," one of most famous underground shopping malls out there. There's lots of fantastic stores to choose from, but what's really caught my eye is the cool designer stores!

With the ceiling of the passageway made to resemble boulevard trees, as well as a stone-paved foot path and beautiful stained glass on display, even if you are not shopping, simply taking a stroll through the Tenjin Chikagai is an enjoyable experience.



I'm going to introduce you to "Tabio HOMME," a unique shop that I'm a big fan of! This place specializes in men's socks, which is pretty rare, right! They stock all kinds colorful socks in various different designs and patterns. And there's even a free service on offer where they'll stitch your initials into the socks that you've purchased. I really recommend it!

Tenjin Chikagai INFORMATION
