One of our readers, Yui, visited the store shortly after the opening of the exhibition and shared these photos and details with J-Network.
Near the entrance of the shop is this promotional stand with concert merchandise and video footage (top) of the concert.
The area near the cashier was also adorned with concert visuals. To the left of this picture’s background is a guestbook for fans to sign their well wishes for the duo.
In addition, Akihabara GAMERS also carried stock of last year’s concert. Here is a poster promoting the concert recording.
However, we are unable to display visuals of the main attraction of the costume party: the costume replicas Yui Ogura and Kaori Ishihara wore during the concert. Close-up photography of the costumes as well as nearby areas were unfortunately forbidden.
