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.

Six recommended autumn color spots in the Tohoku area.

It is said that autumn leaves look more beautiful when the nighttime/daytime difference in temperature is greater.

The Tohoku area has lots of mountains and valleys so there are many places where you can view beautiful autumn leaves! In this article, I will introduce to you some popular spots.

Hirosaki Park (Aomori)

This park has about 1,000 maple trees and 2,600 cherry trees. You can see gorgeous kikuningyo (Japanese traditional dolls) and chrysanthemums at “Hirosakijo Kiku to Kohyo Matsuri” which is held inside the botanical garden of the park.
