Visit Miffy in Japan

Japan is home to many shops dedicated to Miffy – if you’re visiting the country this year, here are the best spots to find your favourite bunny.

If you love shopping, visit one of nine ‘Miffy Style’ stores, which have all the Miffy merchandise you can imagine! They are located all over Japan, with a couple in Tokyo, as well as Fukuoka, Aichi and Osaka. Unlike many others, the shops are aimed at an older, fashion conscious audience who love Miffy’s simple and chic style.

Seeing somebody special? There’s a Miffy Flower shop based in Tokyo! The shop sells a beautiful array of flowers as well as some unique Miffy products which aren’t available anywhere else, including necklaces and other jewellery.

Have a lunch break at the Miffy Café in Kamaishi, Iwate. Everything from the interior to the menu is Miffy themed, including Miffy waffles and Miffy parfaits! The café is a popular hit with locals as well as tourists, most likely because of the tasty food. The project was originally developed from 2013 as a testimony to the friendship between the Netherlands and Kamaishi, and the cafe opened in 2015.

If you’re keen to find out more about Dick Bruna – Miffy’s creator – and his original artworks, head over to the exhibition ‘The Secret of Simplicity: Dick Bruna’s Design’ in Hyogo or Kanagawa. Here, 500 items including paperbacks, sketches and posters, have been compiled under themes which explore the main themes of Bruna’s work: line, color and shape.
