Japanese mobile phone operator NTT Docomo is collaborating with Harajuku’s famous Takeshita Street from February 15 to March 14 for the newest entry to its Hoshi Puro series of TV commercials.
Takeshita Street’s iconic entrance―and a symbol of Harajuku―will take on the forum of the commercial and be dotted with its many characters. The flag that flies along the street will also receive an original design. The music too will be changed to Gen Hoshino’s Sabiensu which plays during the commercial.
Several popular stores along Takeshita Street are collaborating with the commercial too, from selling products inspired by the characters to changing their interior designs and selling merchandise. This includes Marion Crepe, Candy・A・Go・Go, SPINNS, Pearl Lady, Purikura LAND NOA, WEGO, Totti Candy Factory, and Rainbow Pancake.

20 stores are participating in the collaboration all of which are handing out a range of original stickers. These are all limited in quantity so don’t miss out.

Photo spots designed by popular models Mei Tanaka and Yutaro will also make an appearance for a limited time. Tanaka’s can be found on the side door for Marion Crepe and Yutaro’s at the space next to CUTE CUBE HARAJUKU.
