Let’s meet Crayon Shinchan in Kasukabe!

 

October 2018

 

Kasukabe City in Saitama Prefecture, the place where Crayon Shinchan lives! I’ll introduce 3 spots where you can meet Crayon Shinchan and experience his world in Kasukabe!

 

1 – Crayon Shinchan’s Theme song can be heard at Kasukabe Station platform!

Kasukabe Station on the Tobu Railway line uses the theme song from Crayon Shinchan as the melody announcing the departure of the next train. Also, the noticeboards on the platform and the signs around the station are decorated with the characters. When you arrive at Kasukabe Station you’ll be able to feel a warm welcome from Crayon Shinchan and all his friends.

There are three main points of interest which incorporate the theme of Shinchan’s movie studio.

 

The first point is a special area which displays movie posters and props that appeared onscreen. There is even a monument imitating one scene from the movie! This is a must see!

The second point is that you can put on a uniform from Shinchan’s kindergarten and have your picture taken. They have also specially prepared a machine that turns your pictures into stickers. Since this shop is the only one which offers Shinchan picture frames we highly recommend putting on the uniform and having your picture taken here!
