My Photos from Epcot Japan!

Hey guys!  It’s me, Naru, and I’m doing something a little different this week.  Instead of posting my written work, I’m going to be offering you a second-hand view of the legendary Anime store at Walt Disney world!  Okay, so it’s not a literal anime store, there’s no DVDs on sale there…  It’s a huge store in the Japan portion of the Epcot park, and there’s a lot of anime merchandise to be found there, as well as countless other pieces of culture.  I’ll apologize right off the bat for the quality of some of these pictures…  I’m not a professional photographer, and a lot of these items were behind glass, meaning there’s some glare to deal with.  Sorry about that, but even so, this should give you a good idea of what to expect should YOU decide to plan a trip to the most popular theme park on Earth.

Starting off with a pretty Sword Art Online Wall Scroll.

Which is followed up with some cute random frogs and…  Who’s that familiar kitty in the corner?

They had a HUGE Pokemon section.

Only the strongest glass in the world can keep this many Goku contained.

Some Studio Ghibli statues.

Of course they also have Mario merchandise.  I mean, come on.

Godzi…  Er, I mean Gojira and his many foes!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

But if we’re being honest, the Sailor Scouts could kick his scaly ass.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

With Link’s help, why not?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Little blurry here, but this would be the One Piece section.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Are you feeling jealous?  It’s because I bought that Tifa.  $139.00.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

More Sailor Moons.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The full case of wall scrolls.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There’s that darn cat again…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So familiar…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I did say Pokemon had a huge section, right?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Because I meant it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In fact, I was kind of underselling it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Including a ton of trading cards.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This shop was pretty pricey, but that shirt was the only item that cost OVER 9000 dollars.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Just chilling here in Disney world, hunting Titans…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is Doraemon.  He looks distressingly phallic.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Bunch of Ghibli puzzles.  There was also a huge rack of Ghibli plushies, but none of my pictures came out clear.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I don’t know, but they’re pretty.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As do I, Goku.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The weirdest sock mascot I’ve ever seen.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

“Daddy?  Are there hipsters in Japan?”  “Yes, Virginia, there are.”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I don’t remember why I took this shirt’s picture, but the animal is pretty cute.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Sparkly kimonos reflect light.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

While darker ones are more photogenic.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

More kimonos.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And yet more.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For the record, you should always ask permission before photographing people.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Bunch of accessories.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The glare marks which warrior will be your mortal enemy.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I wanted these two to break out of the glass and fight each other so badly.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Man alive, I love Japanese candy.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Love it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Looooove it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The drinks I’m a  little more picky about.Ramune is cool, but tea is better.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Ah, Japan and their noodles.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

What time is it?  Sake time.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I liked how these employees were always willing to pose for pictures.  They were very nice.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If I could wish away the glass case on just ONE of these pictures, this Kawaii display would be it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And a nice looking banzai tree outside.

 

Well, that’s my photos, I hope you enjoyed looking at them.  Next week, we’re getting back into the swing of things with an anime review!  See you then!
