Surprise!

A lot of the small envelopes around the store contain surprises. You can see some of the available contents in these boxes, but you don't know which one you'll be getting.

Not your ordinary towels

I was a little skeptical of these towels at first. But open them and you can see the incredible artistry in each piece.

Note that the stand is made from recycled cardboard. A big part of the message of "Totoro" is reconnecting with nature and protecting the environment.

A wall of soot sprites

I saw clever ones that others had made. I'm sure this wall will soon be completely covered with sprites.
