10 of the World’s Greatest Toy Stores

KiddyLand, Tokyo

Because Japan is the source of all things adorable, it’s only natural that it is the home to one of the world’s best toy havens. Nestled in between the hustle and bustle of Harajuku, this six-floor paradise is where you’ll find one of the biggest displays of local Japanese toy characters including Hello Kitty, Doraemon, and Rilakkuma among many others. After several months of renovation, it finally reopened again in 2012 and to date, it’s still one of Tokyo’s main attractions for both the tourists and locals.
