TAKARA TOMY A.R.T.S – Double-licenced T-shirt by Pocket Monster and the Japan Football Association
Recently, the popularity of football (soccer) among children is soaring because Japanese football players and the Japanese women’s national football team have become very successful around the world. Now, TAKARA Tomy Arts is releasing the “Pokemon and Japan national football team T-shirt” on March 23.
On the doubled-licenced T-shirt, the emblem and mascot of Japan’s national football team, the logo of each team’s nickname “SAMURAI BLUE” for the men’s team and “NADESHIKO JAPAN” for the women’s team, and Pokemon characters (including famous Pikachu) are printed.
I’m expecting to see a lot of these shirts on kids running around Tokyo this summer.
There are 4 versions/7 models of the shirts which can be seen in the attached pictures.
All are 2,000 yen.
