Donguri Republic comes to Hong Kong! :)

Opening very soon!

Get ready to grab some goodies...

To be precise -- some Studio Ghibli goodies
 ...because starting this June 21 (i.e., tomorrow),
Hong Kong will officially be home to a branch of
Donguri Republic!!!!! :)

And for the record: of course this doesn't mean I won't want to visit Japan anymore -- not least because there are more places to get my Studio Ghibli character goods fix -- but... it really does make me pretty happy that Donguri Republic's chosen to locate its first store outside Japan in Hong Kong! :)

Hi The Fragrant Harbour --

I'm not sure things were for sale today -- and there weren't any Ponyo plushies or handkerchiefs in the store!!! But I'll definitely be back after it officially opens... :b

Wow, can you get inside the Cat Bus?

Hi A Hero Never Dies --

Yes, you can -- and I did! This Cat Bus doesn't have any seats though. Instead it has a small display case containing miniature models, including of the bath house in "Spirited Away". :)
