Sonic the Hedgehog Japan Accessories Card
Sonic the Hedgehog Accessories of Japan Page 3
If it's from Japan, and you can wear it, but it isn't clothing, chances are, it's right here. Japan had plenty of accessories with which to decorate yourself. However, many of these items had co-releases in other countries, they just changed the packageing. Don't be surprised if you see some of these things else where, or even own some yourself! Thanks to wider releases for some of these items, they are fortunatly not all that rare.

Big Embroidered Sonic Tails Cap Hats These hats have big embroidery! The bright red Sonic cap & bright yellow Tails cap both feature a nicely done embroidered design for the front that's larger than usual. It takes up the whole front of the hat.
Because embroidery is labor-intensive, hardy, and has to be done carefully to have good quality, it's usually not done very big. These quality caps are a great exception, with the very cute yet seldom used sitting Tails art & profile running Sonic. Both have the "Segasonic" branding in green letters with "The Hedgehog" in black. The caps are still in their clear plastic wrap packaging. Where could these have been obtained?

Xciting Sega World Japan Watch Here is a blue strap watch from Sega World in Japan. It has spinning Sonic on the face, no numbers, and normal black watch-hands. The buckle is metal, & the strap keeper loop is clear (As is the face-edge) The strap has the Sega logo, says 'segaworld' & near the holes it has the large "X" that you see there. The words in the boxes are
"X-Citing" and "You'll WANT!!". Why bother to spell those things out? It seems kind of a strange slogan to put on a watch. Photo discovered by: @JapanAnimePosters on Instagram
Segasonic Black Embroider S&T Cap Here is another embroidered baseball cap style hat--it's likely from some type of set, where each had has the Segasonic label, and a large embroidered design over the whole front. In this case, it's a green/yellow circle with Sonic & Tails posing in front of it. The Segasonic banner is white, with the red stripe only at the edges/tips. Because the embroidery is large enough, you can see that Sonic is doing a theumbs up & Tails looks cheerful. The hat is otherwise plain black. With a nice, big & sturdy all-sewn on design, this is a nice classic cap to have.
This hat seems to be in the original packaging/bag. Photo discovered by: @JapanAnimePosters on Instagram
1990s Sonic Face Blue Coin Purse This is likely the 1st coin purse made in the shape of Sonic's head. (You can see another, later one also here on Accessories) It's made of faux leather, is tan inside & has the zipper at the bottom, under his chin. The back has the Segasonic stamp & copyright. Notice how it only includes the top 2 spikes. Most items with 'just his face', have 3, it's another hallmark of how early this was made. Photo discovered by: @JapanAnimePosters on Instagram
White Plastic Sega World Japan Umbrella
This is an umbrella that was exclusivly available at Sega World Japan. It's white plastic (instead of waterproof fabric) & has a more curved shape. There are blue Sega World logos & a panel (likely 2, other unseen) with sihlouette standing Sonic, the logo, and what is believed to be the "life of power" quote below it, written pretty small.
Notice the oddly colored areas of the umbrella. These are spots where the plastic is getting old. There's also a hole in it near the top. Sometimes old plastic items don't hold up too well, as they dry out. Photo discovered by: @JapanAnimePosters on Instagram
