Do you know the Suica penguin? If you have traveled in Tokyo at all, you may have found this adorable little penguin mascot on your subway pass card. I fell in love with him the moment I saw him. There’s something so endearing about his big wide eyes! You can imagine how excited I was to find a Suica penguin store on a recent trip to Tokyo.
As far as I am aware, there is only one Suica penguin store in all of Japan. Please correct me if I’m wrong. Pop up cafés and collaborations appear occasionally but the “Pensta” store in Tokyo Station is the only permanent shop. And boy is it hard to find! I’ve been to Tokyo five times now and only managed to find the Suica Penguin store on purpose ONCE.
