The world's first “Kamen Rider” official merchandise shop “KAMEN RIDER STORE” will open in Tokyo Character Street, First Avenue Tokyo Station in Jul. 1, 2020. The Japanese hero, Kamen Rider, will be shown from Tokyo to the rest of the world.
The “Kamen Rider” series has been popular as one of Japan's leading heroes for many years since it was first broadcast in 1971. Children, who grew up watching “Kamen Rider” and playing with the related goods such as the transformation belt, are part of the fan base, which has expanded to include all the three generations of Showa, Heisei, and Reiwa eras, gaining a strong following among adults.
With this growing fan base, the “Kamen Rider” series will be introduced to the whole country and the world through the 'secret base for goods', “KAMEN RIDER STORE TOKYO”, which is the first shop for the “KAMEN RIDER STORE” chain.
At the opening, various items will be available for sales, such as original goods of the current series “Kamen Rider Zero One” and its cast members, station key holders that can only be purchased at the stores located in Tokyo Station, and goods inspired by the works “The Masked Rider #1”, “Kamen Rider Kuuga”, and “Kamen Rider Zero-One “, which represent the Showa, Heisei, and Reiwa era respectively.
Even after its opening, the shop will continue to offer “stylish” and “cute” items based on the traditional goods of “Kamen Rider” as well as various new projects that will be carried out through the year.
In addition, the digital signage on the wall of the store will display 36 Masked Riders from the Showa, Heisei, and Reiwa eras. The “Kamen Rider Zero One” is displayed at the entrance, so that the fans can enjoy the world of “Kamen Rider” while visiting the shop.
In this particular time, the store aims to be a place that brings energy and smiles to people through the “power” and “courage” of “Kamen Rider”.
“KAMEN RIDER STORE TOKYO” will open in Tokyo Character Street, First Avenue Tokyo Station in Jul. 1, 2020.
