Hello Kitty gets around a lot. From Hokkaido to Shikoku, you’ll see Gotochi  charms of her dressed in the region’s traditional clothes, eating the local specialties and performing the area’s long-established customs. There is a Gotochi charm for every prefecture or area in Japan (there are thousands in total, making it a dangerous addiction). So far I have a kimono-clad Kitty from Kyoto, ramen-slurping Kitty from Takayama, Onsen-visiting Kitty from Nagano and Cosplay-wearing Kitty from Nakano Broadway. See a whole lot more Gotochi Kitty here.
