Take a trip down memory lane at The Exhibition of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon in Roppongi Hills, Tokyo. Fans of the series, both old and new, can look forward to many surprises at this temporary exhibition. Start your transformation and jump into the magical world of Sailor Moon!
The entrance is a spacious observation deck on the 52nd floor, from which you can enjoy a gorgeous view of Tokyo. You can see Tokyo Tower and other landmarks where the actual story took place. This is also the spot where you can have your picture taken with the sailor scouts, with the beautiful, sweeping view of Tokyo in the backdrop.
Case displays showing a number of collectible Sailor Moon goods, from magazines to figurines are found here, and give a taste of what it to come as you delve deeper into the gallery. This area is also one of the few in the exhibition where photography is permitted.
As visitors move on down a long corridor with a timeline of the manga storyline, they can recap on the major battles and events before entering the main exhibition halls.
For some, this will be a major nostalgia trip! The exhibition is made of various rooms and cases filled with original ‘90s goods such as notebooks, stickers, backpacks, dolls, and more. You can also find some original costumes worn for the Sailor Moon musical. Particularly beautiful is the official artwork created and personally selected by the author of the series, Naoko Takeuchi. A few pieces created exclusively for the exhibition are on display.
Special treats await visitors beyond the exhibition.
The attached gift shop is a worthwhile experience for fans in its own right, featuring exclusive merchandise that you cannot find anywhere else- from sweets to stationary and beyond. The limited edition Sailor Moon Kewpie dolls are too cute to pass up!
Fighting evil by moonlight is tough work! Fortunately, the Chibiusa Café offers a colorful menu with mouthwatering dishes that are sure to energize. Menu items include the “Sailor Moon Special Burger”, served with bacon and egg on pink buns and with star-shaped tots on the side. More adventurous gourmands may want to try the “Three-Variety Talisman Curry”, featuring the outer Sailor senshi, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto symbols over rice and served with yellow, spinach-flavored, and squid ink curries.
Particularly popular are the desserts, which are packed with unique flavor combinations to reflect the characters of the series. The Heavenly Miracle Romance Parfait is decked out in sorbet, strawberries, and a variety of juice flavors.
The menu also features a range of multi-hued cocktails available in alcoholic and nonalcoholic options. Be sure to try the Evil Black Crystal Cocktail or the Five Sailor Senshi Beauty Juice!
