While visiting Japan this year my 5yr old daughter had one thing on her mind -- Hello Kitty Land. So, as much as it pained my son, a day would be spent revisiting (we had to go last year as well) the park - giving up a day of toy and kit hunting, which my little girl puts up with all the time . Yep, this would be her day -- or so she believed.
Once inside we rode the rides and ate custard cakes and candy, then we turned a corner and BOING! There was the display - don't ask me what this was doing in a place filled with talking cupcakes and magic shoes - but to both me and my son it was like an oasis.
These are the actual costumes and props used the new movie. Luckily my Japanese has gotten good enough that i learned from the man next to me (who was also taking pictures) that the props were on tour in Japan - and somewhere there was a 14ft long version of the Yamato out on display - if you found that, you could enter your name to WIN THE DARN THING!!! sigh. Anyway - here are the pics i managed to get while my daughter was pulling on my shirt - hope you like them.
