Disappointing effort by favored Aerolithe but Normcore sure was impressive.

I have a question for those in Japan. I work for a Japanese company and my boss is going for two weeks. I have asked him to try and find one of the Almond Eye stuffed animal characters that I have seen are available. I would be happy with any number of choices, but she is a favorite, as well as Kitasan Black.

Any idea the best place to purchase one of these cute little critters? And about how much do you think they cost on average? I need to know about how much I should expect to pay. Thanks so much.

I think I can help you.
On line shop (with the link Mylute posted above) is available only for the residents.
And I’m not so sure if your boss can get to the goods before he leaves Japan.
It basically takes a week from order to delivery.

So he may visit real shops.
Where and when is he going in Japan?
Tokyo area?

He is leaving on June 5th and will be there for 2 weeks. His wife is Japanese and he used to live there for 12 years. I believe he will be near Tokyo, but I will ask him when I go back to work on Tuesday. Thank you both for the kind assistance. 🤗

Wow, what a close finish. One more step and Danon Kingly would've caught him, no shame in that second. I think it all came down to the lead switch in the stretch, Roger Barows gained a step on Danon Kingly as he changed a bit sooner and found more.

Great!
Now I believe that he will not have much trouble ordering Almond Eye stuffed animal characters on-line with the link Mylute had posted .
https://shop.prc.jp/shopbrand/ct3/

But he may visit ''GATE J Shimbashi'', which will be the easiest way to buy them.
GATE J Shimbashi is located near Shimbashi Station, next to Tokyo Station, at the heart of Tokyo.
Please show him the links below!
http://gatej.jp/tokyo/index.html
http://gatej.jp/tokyo/collection.html
http://gatej.jp/tokyo/access.html

I'm 100% sure that he knows where Shimbashi is! ;)
