Speaking of which, there are also numerous Kazumo-chan-themed products sold in Okatteya Moe like toys and keychains to name a few. If you want to see Kazumo-chanyou will see her in a vault inside Okatteya Moe. You can enter it for free and take photos with her. Sometimes, Kazumo-chan is dressed up depending on the event. However, since it was the pandemic when we visited, she was wearing a mask (for safety purposes).
