I Grew Up With Hello Kitty In Japan! :)I am a Japanese female, 40's, who lives in Japan.
When I was a girl, the cute Hello Kitty was born. I have been grown up with Hello Kitty and another Sanrio calacter. Most of girls have had at least one Hello Kitty product at that time.
I was not a big fan of her though, because in any occasion, she didn't smile. She always looked very serious. No doubt. I didn't know why she didn't smile at all. Finally, though, she seems to express her feeling on her face. It is great! Also she sometimes turn up with her boyfriend? Daniel. I love them.
Here, we have 'local Hello Kitty goods' in many traveling spots in Japan.
I travel to Mt. Fuji with my boyfriend this summer, so I hope to get a cute Hello Kitty goods over there!
