(Attention! To our sadness, Tamagotchi Department Store Harajuku CLOSED on 26 February, 2017. I keep all the memories with many photos in Kawaii News February, 2017, so if you want to see how the store was like, please go to the article.)
Tamagotchi Department Store in Harajuku re-opened on 29 November, 2014, as I announced on the post about Tamagotchi Anniversary Event in Odaiba.Talking about foods in Harajuku, crepe is the most popular. It’s a dream for Japanese teenage girls to stroll Takeshita Street with a crepe in their hand.
But how about this new comer?

Cute and healthy Tamagotchi Donuts.
I meant to write about the new shop and its items, but the Tamagotchi donuts changed my mind. They were surprisingly delicious!

Let’s go shopping in Tamagotchi world in Harajuku and enjoy donuts!
Tamagotchi Department Store is located in the ground floor of Harajuku Ash, which is very next to iconic Takeshita Street, the coolest street in Japan.

The renewed Tamagotchi Department Store is in a few steps to left from here. I’m so proud of it as an old fan of Tamagotchi.

The store is not as big as the new Pokemon Center Mega Tokyo in Ikebukuro, but we can find any Tamagotchi items.
Some items are available only at this store. Lovelitchi in Harajuku fashion is great for souvenirs in Harajuku.

Tamagotchi Planet is on the ceiling. I saw the similar idea in the entrance of Ghibli Museum. The sky on the ceiling is wonderful. It makes us feel free and fine. Even more wonderful when it comes to Tamagotchi Planet that is 5 galaxies away above the sky!

For the grand opening, they gave customers a file of a limited design. Those characters in Harajuku Kawaii (=cute) fashion are all new for me.
They are not familiar to old fans like me, but I don’t accept it negatively. I’ve talked about my impresstions A LOT, so if interested, see the post of Tamagotchi Anniversary Event in Odaiba & Ariana Grande’s Theme Song.
So finally, this is a set of Tamagotchi Donuts.

They are frozen at first. They thaw out naturally in 15 – 20 minutes after you buy. Just stroll Takushita Street and they will be ready. It’s winter now, so more than 20 minutes might be better. I did so because my first bite was still hard and cold… so I waited for a while.
If only the technology was enough to share tastes!
Sweet but not too sweet. Crispy, not too oily at all. Mild but memorable with the pretty chocolate coating.
Amazing. Perfect. The tastes were beyond my expectations!
Tamagotchi Donuts are healthy as I wrote in the beginning of this post. How? Discover it from ingredients I translated.
wheat, chocolate, soy milk, brown sugar, egg, vegetable oil, butter, almond, salt, pumpkin powder, matcha (green tea powder,) baking powder
(Special Thanks – Google Translate)
No preservative, no coloring, no shortening. (So, have it on the day of your purchase!)
Fantastic, isn’t it?
People tend to think that they cannot take all of tastes, looks and healthiness at the same time, but it is wrong. Tamagotchi Donuts are the proof. They are delicious, cute and healthy!!

I enjoyed Tamagotchi Donuts on a bench in Yoyogi Park. Not only a crepe, I push them confidently. I’ll surely have them again.
Enter the new Tamagotchi Department Store and you POSSIBLY come across Ariana Grande the super star…
Have a good day with sweet smiles!
