Hikari's Hero

6:57 PM |

Hikari, like thousand other 'ordinary' kids, love fictional heroes, such as Buzz Light Year, Ultraman, Power Rangers, Pokemon, Anpanman, Naruto, Mushiking, and a lot others. Not to mention T-rex, Brachiosaurus, Velociraptor and a bunch other dinosaurs. He remembers all the characters, their names, their weapons, their accessories, their habit, anything! I don't know whether it's good or bad, but living in Japan, kids are exposed to these kinds of fictional heroes through movies (which play everyday), books, magazines, and other accessories. It's also very easy to find their goodies. Well, that means bad for the parents, though:(
One particular hero that Hikari like best is the Ultraman.
He's been dying to go to what he said 'Ultraman's house' ever since we went to Tokyo Disneyland and visited Buzz' and Pooh's houses. After that time, he begged us to take him to Ultraman's house. If Buzz and Pooh have a house, why can't Ultraman? At that time, Papap always told him if he could be a good kid, Papap would take him to Ultraman's house. So, two months ago, in October, Hikari was collecting Papap's promise...

Papap took us to Bandai museum where Ultraman and other fictional heroes -like Gundam- produced by Bandai reside. Hikari wore his big smile and giggled all the time we were there. Only one, he cried histerically in that museum and that was when he saw a clown. The museum has several floors for its attractions. Next to every collection, the museum puts photos and some information about the collection: when it was first published, who was the creator, etc. They are written in Japanese, of course. The museum also puts the original accessories used in the movie, for example: the monster foot and head, the plane, the uniforms, etc. This is really museum for kids! For the folks, we can sit down comfortably on the couch while waiting for our kids. Not that I did that, though. Hikari, Papap, and Mama were on this adventurous journey together!
