Masao Gunji, a former Police Officer, lives in a Hello Kitty themed house and owns 5,169 Hello Kitty pieces.
“Kitty has been the love of my life,” the 67-year-old man said.
Masao Gunji spent over $250,000 to build a baby pink Hello Kitty house where him and his wife lives.
His collection includes dolls, bicycle helmets, mirrors, kitchen ware, which he has been gathering for 35 years with the help of his wife.
He said he likes the Hello Kitty character because of its expression.
“For some reason when I’m sad, she looks a little bit sad as well. And when I am happy, she looks happy.”
