Destination 01: Harajuku (including Sailor Moon Store)

Sailor Moon Store Explore The Real Life Locations of Sailor Moon Private Package Tour

The official Sailor Moon Store opened on 23th September 2017 and for sure many people were lining up on this day to be the first visitors. Before, all the stores with Sailor Moon merchandise were just pop-up stores for a limited time, but this time the store should stay permanently. It is located along the Meiji Dori Avenue inside the famous shopping department Laforet, just a view minutes walk away from JR Harajuku station or Tokyo Metro Meiji-jingu-mae / Omotesando station.
The store welcomes you at the B 0.5 floor in a light pink fitting perfectly to the bishojo anime theme. But also other spots make the design perfect including chandelier and other sweet details. Inside the store you can find a range of merchandise from any kind, including goods like key chains, smarthphone cases, books, stationeries and more. Also shop exclusive goods which you only can buy at this shop are available and probably one of the highlights. But that’s not all, just on the other side you find the second part of the Sailor Moon Store in a nice blue color filled with clothes, bags, jewelry and purses. Also some gacha machines are set up there.

 

Destination 02: Sailor moon locations in real life (Azabu Juban Station, street view, Akai Kutsu no Kanojo, Azabu Hikawa Shrine)

 

Azabu Juban Station

The Azabu-Juban district in Tokyo is located in Minato Ward, one of the most expensive of Tokyo’s 23 wards to live in. It is well known for its high concentration of embassies, including the Australian Embassy. Near the subway station is a pleasant shopping street, with trendy boutiques, cafes and even a 100 yen shop.

Akai Kutsu no Kanojo

Akai Kutsu no Kanojo Explore The Real Life Locations of Sailor Moon Private Package Tour

The Girl with the Red Shoes is inspired by the Japanese nursery rhyme “Akai Kutsu” (Red Shoes), written in 1922 by Japanese poet Ujo Noguchi. The poem is popularly believed to be based on the life of a young girl, Iwasaki Kimi, who died of tuberculosis at the Toriikazu Church in Azabu, Tokyo.

Azabu Hikawa Shrine

Asai Hikawa Shrine Explore The Real Life Locations of Sailor Moon Private Package Tour

In the series, Rei Hino (Sailor Mars) and her grandfather live and work here. Even though the initial kanji of the shrine is different in real life (the character for “ice” instead of “fire”), it is still read the same way.
