Cup no Fuchiko x Gotochi Kitty Mt. Fuji
On March 10th, the newest additions to the Gotochi Hello Kitty-themed Cup no Fuchiko toy series were added, expanding to include toys based on the Shinshu region and Mt. Fuji.
Cup no Fuchiko is a series of figures designed to sit on cup rims, highly detailed and posed in a number of amusing positions. Following the previous Hokkaido Lavender toy, the upcoming releases are the second and third in the series of Cup no Fuchiko figures featuring Gotochi Hello Kitty, a Hello Kitty variant based on various local Japanese landmarks and cultural themes.
The “Shinshu Kitty-chan” variant is only available in Nagano Prefecture, the modern name for the area formerly known as Shinshu, and features a green and yellow color scheme based on the prefecture’s nature and spring flower blossoms. The blue Mt. Fuji version is exclusive to Yamanashi and Shizuoka.
The two 7-figure series lineups include “Back-to-Back Kitty-chan and Fuchiko”, “Walking Kitty-chan”, “Kitty-chan Standing on Fuchiko”, “Kitty-chan Leading Fuchiko”, “Fuchiko Carrying Kitty-chan on Back”, and “Fuchiko Holding Kitty-chan”, plus a secret toy.
Each toy retails for 540 yen. The Shinshu variants are available at shops inside Nagano Prefecture JR train stations, service and parking areas along the Nagano Expressway, and Nagano Prefecture souvenir shops. The Mt. Fuji versions are available at service and parking areas on Yamanashi and Shizuoka freeways, as well as souvenir shops and theme parks in Yamanashi and Shizuoka Prefecture.
The Gotochi Kitty Mt. Fuji toys are based on the famous mountain.
