LINE FRIENDS STORE in Harajuku, Tokyo
The first LINE official store in Harajuku Tokyo!
In case you are not familiar with LINE, LINE is a smartphone application for instant communications (texting, phone calls,video calls etc) hugely common in Japan and many other Asian countries. LINE has launched in Japan in 2011 and it did not take long to gain huge amount of users which is over 8 million in Japan and 700 million in whole world!
One of the strong reasons why LINE has spread around so quickly could be they produces online stickers with their own characters called “LINE FRIENDS”. Because they have became massively on demand, currently they even broadcast their own TV anime show and many related goods have been sold in Japan!
