    ARTNIA - Contest - Sneak Preview for 504 MEMBERS

    Hello,


    I'll be visiting Tokyo on 24th December and was looking forward to visiting the Square Enix Character Goods store. I was sad to discover that it had closed down. However, Artnia seems nice, but I'm quite confused. When will it open? Will admission be free?





    Could someone please post some details here?

    "I was sad to discover that it had closed down."


    Indeed, visitors were even offering flowers to Sephiroth as a parting gift:

    Let's see...ARTNIA will open today (local time) for a select few (504) JP SEM members. So far, the only way to attend the café is to participate and win the lottery contest I linked to above.

    Hmm... I hope it opens to the general public by the 24th.


    Are there any other places in Tokyo that a Final Fantasy fan should visit? Either for purchasing merchandise or something similar to the Character Goods store? It would be a shame to go halfway across the world to FF's country of origin and not see anything FF-related.

    I'll keep an eye out for any updates.


    That's a good question...I usually import my SQUARE ENIX merchandise directly from the SQUARE ENIX JP e-STORE via White Rabbit Express (whiterabbitexpress.com/). Besides, I am more of a Museum of Natural History-kind of guy, so I guess I wouldn't know...but perhaps you could drop by the SQUARE ENIX Headquarters? www.jp.square-enix.com/company/en/locati...


    Also, I am sure that you would be able to come across plenty of merchandise in the Akihabara shopping district.

    Ah, yes, Akihabara. I'm looking forward to going there.


    Are regular people allowed to enter the headquarters? I doubt there's anything worthwhile inside though...

    I believe regular people/fans are usually welcome to have a quick look inside and take a photo or two.

    That sounds great. I'll be sure to drop by then. I doubt it'll be as equally great as seeing Sephiroth, but I guess one can't have everything.


    Thanks for the information, Grimoire

    There is no need to thank me, I am simply glad to be of help.


    Best of luck now and have a fun trip. ^_- And who knows? Maybe you will get another chance to see Sephiroth, along with Buster Sword and the Midgar scale model, on an event or similar in the future?
