On November 11, 2022 (Friday), Nintendo OSAKA , the second Nintendo-operated official store in Japan, will open on the 13th floor of the Daimaru Umeda store in Umeda, Osaka. I got the opportunity to cover the inside of the Nintendo OSAKA store ahead of time, so I took a lot of pictures of the inside of the unknown Nintendo OSAKA store.

At the entrance of Nintendo OSAKA, the Nintendo logo shines white against a bright red background.

Placed in the middle are decorated with links, Shizue & Mamekichi & Tsubakichi, Inkling (Girl), and Mario figures from the left.

Link is a version dressed in familiar green clothes in the Legend of Zelda series.

From the Animal Crossing series, Shizue & Mamekichi & Tsubukichi are three-dimensional.

And Mario, the heavyweight of the Nintendo character.

The figurines are placed not only at the entrance, but also at multiple locations throughout the store, so you can actually pick up a case and observe the figurines carefully.

Near the entrance there is a bright red check-in terminal like the one below.

Various goods are lined up with Mario.

However, there are a lot of Mario-related goods in other places in the store. In particular, there are many Mario-related characters, so there were so many Yoshi-related goods that one shelf wasn't enough.

blankets and hand towels

This amount is just for the stuffed animals of enemy characters.

Some things are hard to imagine the contents if they are stored in the box.

Such products were exhibited in a state where they were taken out of the box nearby.

In addition, various goods such as various stuffed animals and towels were exhibited.
