Our mission at MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON is to spread Japanese pop culture to the world - that includes fashion, music, anime, food and a whole lot more. We want to reach out to present and future J-fans in the hopes that you will make the trip over to Japan.

With a welcome increase in the number of visitors coming to Japan in recent years, we at MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON have been working with local businesses to offer products and services that are unique to Japan and also assist these companies with their localisation strategies. By employing a mix of marketing strategies, we aim to boost the local economy from inside and out.

In order to realise our hopes, we have created the 4 elements of MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON. They are 1. Our events that take place all over the world (FES), 2. Our MOSHI MOSHI BOX Harajuku Information Center (BOX), 3. Our website (WEB) and our original TV show on NHK World (TV.)

Say Hello to The Latest Japanese Culture.

The 4 Elements of MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON.




Kaori’s easy recipe – Learn how to make “Hello Kitty Halloween Cookies”

With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s recipe series! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.


Today, we’ll be making “Pumpkin & Ghost Hello Kitty Cookies.”




80g unsalted butter

50g sugar

150g weak flour

Chocolate pens – red, yellow, black (bought at Daiso)

Cookie cutter (bought at Seria)

Pumpkin seeds (as many as you will need)

1-2 tablespoons pumpkin powder


2:Put the weak flour, sugar and room temperature unsalted butter into a bowl and mix.


3:Mix the pumpkin powder in the same quantity of hot water as there is powder.


4:Half the mix from step 2 and set aside half in a separate bowl. Slowly add the pumpkin mixture from step 3 into one of the bowls bit by bit whilst stirring until it turns into your preferred colour.

(Please be careful not to pour in too much at once as this will make the mixture too soft and difficult to work with.)


Cut the dough that you mixed with pumpkin powder in step 4 with a pumpkin cookie cutter and then hole out the middle to make room for the face with a round cookie cutter. (The round cookie cutter was purchased at Seria.)


Next, roll out your white dough and cut out the same round shape as before with a round cookie cutter and put it inside the pumpkin hole.


Finally, place a pumpkin seed on the stem of your dough pumpkin.


Open your 150°C preheated oven, lower to 140°C and place in the oven for 20 minutes. (Be sure not to brown the dough too much.)



6:After the cookies have cooled you can begin to draw the face. Start from the nose to ensure the face proportion lines up.Next, use the blunt end of a toothpick to draw on the eyes with your chocolate pens and the sharp end for the whiskers.


Finally, draw the ribbon. Begin by drawing the left and right part of the ribbon roundly first. Once that has dried a little, draw in the middle round part. You can draw the same face on the ghost Hello Kitties too.
