Tomica Shops
« on: May 09, 2011, 03:05:50 AM »
I am currently still working on this section, so bear with me as changes may take place daily until the basic data and photos are all input.


The TOMICA SHOPS are the place to go for all your current TOMICA needs. So of course, a TOMICA SHOP is the number one place for a Tomica Fan to visit when they are traveling in Japan. You can get almost all your Tomica needs taken care of here. The shops carry a full range of current Tomica, Tomica Limited, Limited Vintage & Neo, as well as all the other Tomica accessories you might ever want (books, playsets, and everything else you need to enjoy the Tomica Life!). The only thing missing is older vintage Tomica. And don't forget the Tomica Construction Factory where they will assemble a car before your eyes!

I love going to the TOMICA SHOP. Where else can you find all the newest assortment of Tomica cars and accessories all in one place? And one of my favorite features is the Tomica Assembly Factory. What's more cool than watching your very own cars being assembled before your eyes? In case you're not familiar with the Tomica Assembly Factory, here's what it's all about - First you select your pieces - you grab a chassis, and plastic windshield assembly, then you have 3 interior colors and 3 body colors to choose from (occasionally there is even a special 4th body to choose from). You give the parts to the friendy Tomica employee and they assemble it for you. You can mix and match the interior and exterior colors to your own liking.

There aqre currently 5 Tomica Shops in Japan, with a sixth to open soon (May 2012):

Play area.





The closest station is the NISHITETSU Subway TENJIN STATION and it must be like a 2 minute walk from the station , so really really close

I would say once you come out of the station ( at Street level ) go in the direction of Mcdonalds and turn left go on block and you will see the building on the left.
