Jojo's Bizarre Adventure's Owson Store Recreated in Real Life

posted on by Egan Loo
Store near manga exhibition revamped with Owson signs, character goods, diorama, shopping bags

The LAWSON convenience store chain is transforming one of its Sendai City branches into a real-life recreation of the fictional "Owson" store seen in Part 4 of Hirohiko Araki's JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga. The Owson store will be open for business from this Saturday (July 28) to September 30. Not coincidentally, the "Hirohiko Araki Jojo Exhibition" will also open in Sendai on Saturday to celebrate the manga's 25th anniversary.

The front of the store will be changed to read "Owson," and fan can buy exclusive Owson items — such as notebooks, permanent markers, and ballpoint pens — only at that Sendai branch. The store will also display a miniature diorama recreation of Owson, as seen in the manga. Finally, the first 10,000 people who buy JoJo's Bizarre Adventure goods there will receive an original Owson plastic bag.

Not to be left out, the other stores in the chain will be part of a JoJo's Bizarre Adventure campaign, minus the Owson makeover, starting on September 4.
