Tokyo Dome Lupin Store Closed
« on: January 20, 2011, 02:09:36 pm »
On his recent trip into Tokyo my brother snapped some photos including of the Lupin store near Tokyo Dome; apparently the Lupin store is closing. The photos show that the store's stock was on sale prior to the closing; I guess you could call it a going out of business sale except the store never was intended to be open indefinitely. See it here as the latest post: http://bit.ly/hep7j6.

Also while cleaning up his site I  spotted this old photo he took from 2008 of Nabeshin with his assistant: http://bit.ly/hIBLvx

Dammit, I was in Japan (including Tokyo) in June! Why didn't I hear of this store before? Well, at least I got the Lupin TV Special Blu-ray boxset for $400 off the retail price in Akihabara.

Since we are on the subject; nearby there was also a Lupin themed mirror maze.  I've seen pictures and read an article on it and I'm wondering if anyone can come up with anything. I trust it was also closed.

That's a shame. I would have loved to visit that place.

Don't worry, looks like the Japanese were the last to know; with the Lupin-3rd.net site only reporting it on the 28th.
