News: Eggnam closed!

Shibuya’s gal hangout is now closed!

I blogged about visiting Eggnam before on a Tokyo visit. The last time I went to Tokyo I was planning to go again but when I checked the official website for events it had closed!

I was really surprised as it seemed to be a pretty popular place and it was the venue for the monthly Egg Magazine VIP events as well as other gyaru-related events.

Still I suppose people could hang-out all day and only spend 400yen, and with rent so high in Tokyo maybe that’s why it closed. There are still three other Eggnam locations- in Kyoto, Hyogo, and Saitama-ken. These seem to just be corners of game centres though.

Let’s see what made Eggnam special…

The Interior

Pink, animal print, and pink animal print everywhere!

VIP Events

Models like Yumachi, Aina, Nemoyayo, Manya and Kanako were regulars at the events.

Egg used to have it’s VIP events here each month, the models would be there and they would do party games and purikura challenges for prizes and a chance to take purikura with the models.

I don’t know if they still have events or where they would be as I haven’t bought Egg in a while. Anyone know?

Cosplay

Eggnam had free cosplay outfits you could use to take purikura:

Tapioca

There was a Tapiking booth at the front of the store so often people would take purikura with their drinks.

All in all, it was a great place and it’s a shame it had to close… maybe they’ll open a better one!

  2. There's one in Osaka too!

    I bet it'll reopen inside a Namco somewhere. Not that I don't love Kansai and wish we would lead in something, but I doubt they would still operate a bunch but not re-open in the capital.

    1. Yeah, I wish it hadn't closed as most purikura places are in game centres and are sooooo noisy!
