Going Down the Rabbit Hole

Most everyone knows the story of Alice who followed the White Rabbit down into wonderland. Today you can follow along with Alice and do some shopping as well. In Tokyo, Japan you can go shopping in a store called Alice On Wednesday.

You’ll start feeling like Alice the moment you step into the building. First of all, before you can enter the store you have to try a whole group of doors and only one will lead you into the shop. Upon entering you’ll find yourself on the first of the store’s themed floor known as The White Room.

In the White Room, you will find food and drinks among which are unusual “Drink Me” bottles. On the second floor is the Mad Hatter room selling Alice-themed clothing and merchandise. The third floor is the Queen of Hearts room offering accessories and here you can purchase a White Rabbit style pocket watch.

The store is decorated with things from both the book and the animated film. There are key-holes you can peep into to discover things like a picture of the Cheshire Cat. Many of the accessories in the shop also feature the illustrations of John Tenniel from the original 1865 book.

The choice of the name of the store came from the fact that they considered Wednesday to be the most boring day of the week. A day just to get over that hump heading for the weekend again so they thought people might appreciate having some magic mid-week even if they don’t visit the store on a Wednesday. If you are wondering then the store is open every day even on the weekends.
