The King of the Hamsters is back… and he’s taking his show on the road!
Godziham-kun was created in 2001 as a collaboration between Toho kaiju Godzilla and adorable anime hamster Hamtaro. The unusual collab celebrated the same-day release of each franchise’s latest film, and ended up being popular enough to resurface multiple times over the last two decades.
The latest outing for the adorable mini-kaiju will be a four-city pop-up shop tour, featuring new city pop inspired goods:
The pastel merch includes Godziham-kun being adorable on shirts, handkerchiefs, notebooks, and magnets:
EPOS card holders who purchase at least 3,000 yen worth of collab goods will get a bonus mini art print in the style of a Fujifilm Instax (“cheki”) photo:
Godziham-kun’s adorable rampage begins in Tokyo on November 1, and will make three more stops across the main island throughout November and December.
