Everyone’s favourite lazy egg from the Sanrio cast of characters Gudetama is celebrating his 5th anniversary this year. The popular character has taken the world by storm for his downbeat appearance and attitude, even placing second in a poll for best food character.
As a special one-week celebration, the concourse at the Inokashira Line of Shibuya Station outside the ticket gates has been transformed into Gudetama Street. It opened on April 16 and will close after April 22.
Along Gudetama Street you will find the area decorated in Gudetama’s 5th anniversary theme: space. Huge Gudetama measuring 138cm and wearing a variety of costumes will decorate the station. There’s also a video that has been newly produced for this display. Experience Gudetama to the fullest in this special space.
A pop-up shop will also be open from April 19 to May 2 at the Toyoko branch of Tokyu Department Store selling limited edition merchandise.
Gudetama is adored the world over in spite of his gloom-ridden demeanour. He is – hopelessly – serving everything he has over at Shibuya Station right now, so be sure go see him if you’re passing through Shibuya.
