The grand opening became even more memorable with the appearance of global icon Hello Kitty and cosplayer Hakken, a Tokyo Tourism Ambassador. Their presence added vibrancy to the event as they engaged with the audience and participated in various store activities.

Hakken commented on the store opening, saying, “I am looking forward to what sort of things will be offered.” During his visit to the store, Hakken tried the omikuji (fortune-telling strips). He found the cypress fan recommended by the omikuji had “a relaxing scent.”

The Deputy Director of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Bureau of Industrial and Labor Affairs, Akiko Matsumoto, beautifully summed up the essence of this venture in her speech: “With this store, I want you to experience the diverse charms of Tokyo.”

Daruma (Happy Daruma) is one of the unique souvenir items available at the new #Tokyo Tokyo BASE in Haneda Airport. Daruma is a kind of good-luck charm that fulfills people’s wishes. It is said to have appeared in the Edo period (1603-1868). The eyes are left intentionally blank white. People paint one or both eyes while making a wish or setting a specific goal. With a weight at the bottom, even if the daruma falls over, bounces right back up. This reflects its never-give-up attitude. (Not all darumas on sale at the shop have this weight.) While the daruma eyebrows and mustaches are normally painted black, the Happy Daruma—for success and victory wishes—is a special one painted gold. All darumas are handmade so there are no two alike. Each modern daruma has a unique personality.
