    Booking.com is one of the world’s largest accommodation booking websites that connects people from all over the world with many unique places to stay. For the first time ever, Booking.com has announced a very special stay at ‘KAWAII Japanese Room – Addicted to Tokyo.’ Designed in collaboration with no other than art director and icon of Japan’s kawaii pop culture Sebastian Masuda. The stay is available exclusively through Booking.com with only a handful of  booking dates available which are: November 13-14, 14-15 and 15-16. 

     

    One significant pattern which can be seen in the room is that of a traditional jūnihitoe, which is a set of formal kimono garments worn by court-ladies in Japan. The designs and patterns have been fused with a vivid pop colour scheme and created in a modern graphics style for a new form of experimental art. The main concept of the room is “Addicted to TOKYO”. Once you step into the room, you will be immersed in a world of vivid colours and patterns where abstract wonder is fused with traditional features. A stay here is bound to be stay you will never forget. The room is located at the MIMARU TOKYO AKASAKA apartment hotel and was remodeled specifically for this purpose. Reservations will open worldwide at 7pm JST (11am in Amsterdam). Only three reservations – one for each night – will be accepted and it is first-come, first-served.  

    The room is filled with Japanese-style room features such as tatami flooring, sliding doors, zabuton floor cushions, and a raised tatami-floored seating area. There are two beds and a large open space in the room. Once you enter, you will be immersed in a world of patterns.  Using Japanese celebratory culture as a starting point, Masuda has created a space which reflects the atmosphere of an exciting Japanese celebration. Although there are many traditional features to the room, there are also animal patterns and patterns that make the word “TOKYO”, creating a room full of impact. One of the most iconic decorations in the room is the bear which rests on the pink tatami flooring. The bear’s unique design resembles origami, reflecting the cute yet edgy culture of Tokyo fashion. 

    In the room you’ll find KAWAII Japanese Room-limited design yukata. These unisex yukata are designed with a range of patterns and colours that can be seen around the room. You can use them as pyjamas and can even take them back home with you.

     

    You cannot leave the accommodation without checking out the giant mushroom display located on the MIMARU TOKYO AKASAKA roof. Those staying in any room at MIMARU TOKYO AKASAKA during the limited period as well as those staying in the KAWAII Japanese room both have access to see this glorious masterpiece

     

    If you are not one of the lucky few who get a chance to stay at the KAWAII Japanese Room- Addicted to TOKYO, you could book another room in the hotel during the same period to witness Masuda’s iconic mushroom masterpiece. This is the perfect place to experience a full-on kawaii experience right in the centre of Tokyo. The first 100 people to visit the rooftop between 3pm and 9pm on each day between November 13 and 15 will receive an original hand towel.

    12.August.2019 | FASHION / FEATURES

    Welcome to Episode 4 of Kawaii Fashion Snap where we get to know all about the kawaii girls of the world and their fashion. Each girl in this series has incorporated Japanese-like fashion into their wardrobe and turned it into something of their own.

     

    Today, we’ll be taking a look at outfits that make use of the colour pink♡

     

    molly

    Currently residing in Tokyo, Molly leaves a huge impression with her T-shirt that reads “ANTI WAR” in both English and Japanese. Her stylish use of cute pastel colours throughout accentuates this fashionable look, and her pink and purple hair combined with the thick sole trainers is a match made in heaven.

     

    Molly is a big fan of the Japanese idol group CY8ER and has even gotten a photo with the group―as well as several chekki photos with Rinahamu, one of the members. Be sure to check out her Instagram @pink_morii

     

    pinkmilkteahime

    The Pinkmilkteahime has us wanting to dye our own hair blue because hers looks so cute. This co-ord may look simple at first with the single big pink t-shirt, but in fact the rest of her outfit and all of her accessories are uniformly blue, which makes her hair look even more beautiful. Even the blue and pink artwork in the background is in tune with her look.

     

    On her Instagram, she posts not only more beautiful looks, but pictures of her latest purchases too―from snacks to stationery. Follow her on Instagram @pinkmilkteahime

     

    brodie

    Brodie’s baby pink jumper skirt co-ord is kawaii supreme. She is serving us regalia princess with her frilly blouse and jumper skirt which has sweet patterns on it. And if you look closely, her white phone case has a cute flower pattern design♡

     

    If you’re look for some girly styles then we highly recommend following Brodie @vanillabwunny

     

    Mimi Usagi

    Everything about the composition of this shot of Mimi Usagi can be described as cute. She has a cute character t-shirt on, and everything from her innerwear to her skirt is perfectly pink.

    Her pink cheek makeup adds a glimmering allure and helps flaunt her clearly innate kawaii. We want to try shooting a look like she has in this photo too! Be sure to follow her @usagimimichu

     

    Alexandra Bozheskova

    Alexandra has gone for a sexy style here: her simple pink one piece is stunning and laces together flatteringly with those glittery shoes. And all of the items and accessories she has with her are pink, from the chekki camera in her hand to her shoulder bag♡

     

    Alexandra’s Instagram feed is a treasure trove of exquisite and artistic looks. If fantasy takes your fancy, then make sure you follow her @sasha786x

  • Sebastian Masuda And Other Phenomenal Artists Create Outstanding Doraemon Exhibition

    17.July.2019 | SPOT

    28 artist groups and individuals have created artistic pieces to represent Japan’s favourite animated character Doraemon. From July 12 to September 23, 2019, you can see these magnificent creations at the Doraemon Exhibition Osaka 2019 which will take place at Osaka Culturarium at Tempozan.

    The Doraemon Exhibition Osaka 2019 features a range of artists who exhibit their works in Japan and even in foreign countries. This is a fantastic chance to meet a range of new Doraemon that the world has never seen. This event covers a range of genres through modern art that is overflowing with creativity and dedication for the anime character that has grasped the nation. 

    On July 11, the day before the opening of the exhibition, there was a special opening ceremony and private viewing event held exclusively for staff and the press, which was a massive success. 

     

    Press releases of the event reveal that artists Yasumasa Morimura and Sebastian Masuda were present at the ceremony for photos and greetings. 

    Yasumasa Morimura commented with deep emotion: “I am so happy to have finally taken part in the Doraemon Exhibition. For this creation, I used lots of paper to make the costumes. I collaborated with Junko Koike, collecting lots of Doraemon manga as raw materials for the dress. As Doraemon has the power to manipulate time and space, and has the ability to create a door that leads to anywhere he desires, I thought a grey dress would be appropriate. In fact, the entire exhibition venue is just like the inside of Doraemon’s pocket ー it is packed with the work of 28 solo artists and groups. What a fun experience it is. I hope that many people in the Kansai region come see this,” he explained.

    Sebastian Masuda commented: “I’m actually the same age as Doraemon and I share the same birthday as Noby; the main character from the series. I was born with a love for Doraemon.”

     

    He then commented on his art piece: “I actually wanted to make it as big as the Budha statue at Todaiji Temple in Nara, but we wouldn’t be able to fit it in the venue so I made it two metres tall instead”, he laughed. “I collected materials from markets from all around the world, so the final piece is literally made up of the colours of the world,” he continued. 

     

    His message to the people of Osaka is: “I would love it if lots of children came to see this. It would really make my day to hear reactions from them like “whoa, it’s huge” or “that’s so cool!””

     

    Please come stop by to visit your favourite Doraemon!

  • New Future Piece Nursery Produced by Sebastian Masuda Opens in Sendagaya

    18.June.2019 | BUSINESS / SPOT

    Wedged in a quiet residential area of Sendagaya, which is close to Ura-Harajuku, is a kawaii, pastel-coloured building that opened just this month. This eye catching place is a new nursery called “Mirai no Piece Hoikusho” (Future Piece Nursery).

    A conference and paint event titled “HAPPY WALL PROJECT” were held on June 16 to celebrate the nursery’s opening. Those associated with the nursery as well as local residents came together to help paint the outside wall at the entrance which served to help strengthen communal ties in the area.

    The nursery was established by Edulead―who manage 7 nurseries throughout Tokyo, Saitama and Kanagawa conceived around the idea of “building the stories of the future”―and ASOBISYSTEM, a company that promotes Harajuku culture to the world including fashion, music and lifestyle. It was created as a way to aid in the Cabinet Office’s efforts to eliminate nursery school waiting lists. In addition to ASOBISYSTEM employees, it hopes to begin recruiting a wide range of people, including local residents and businesses, as a means to contribute to work activity in the area.

    The representatives of each company spoke about their aspirations for the facility. Shobu Kikuchi (Edulead) said: “The name of the nursery, Mirai no Piece Hoikuchi, signifies a desire to grow healthily  in a colourful world, and the wish for it to be a place that respects the individuality and diversity of the children.”

     

    Yusuke Nakagawa (ASOBISYSTEM) commented: “We normally manage artists and models, but we want to express our strength in entertainment in a new light. We’re a company that promotes the growth of Harajuku culture, so I want to contribute to the growth of children in a way that is rooted in the streets of Harajuku.”

    The designs and visuals for the facility are produced by Sebastian Masuda, a Japanese artist signed to ASOBISYSTEM who is active internationally and helps spread Harajuku’s kawaii culture around the world.

     

    The building’s exterior design takes advantage of Masuda’s former architecture and features a unicorn called Unikyun who watches over the nursery. It also features original puzzle piece characters called Puzzoo who all live together. There are seven unique Puzzoos like the colours of the rainbow each of which is used as a symbol for each class in the nursery. The building’s interior is also decorated in pastel colours to catch the eyes and stir the curiosities of the children.

     

    Speaking about his thoughts on the design, Masuda comments: “As the name [of the nursery] suggests, the children are the pieces of the future. Puzzle pieces are the motif. I want them to be raised in a colourful environment so they never forget how exciting it feels to wear colourful clothes or dye your hair a different colour. I too am personally putting a great effort into international exchange and education, and so I am very happy to get to be part of this facility.”

    The colourful interior decor is painted with ROOMBLOOM AirBreeze by Nippon Paint Holdings which was developed to protect the health of children when painting.

     

    The HAPPY WALL PROJECT saw the children and nursery associates coming together with paints and brushes to draw and colour Pazzoos. The atmosphere was mirthful under a sky so blue one forgot it was the rainy season. The childrens’ paint work with the odourless paint didn’t stop at the wall however―they extended their efforts to wooden boards, paper cups and more. Everybody had smiles on their faces as they got involved.

    Many discussions and issues have arisen through the ages surrounding child rearing, whether it’s the coexistence of work life and raising a child, school nursery waiting lists, both parents being involved in the raising of their child, and so on. Mirai no Piece Hoikusho takes advantage of the strengths of both companies involved and delivers both hard and soft child rearing. Edulead, who develop nurseries in that are the only one of their kind and fit with their local communities, and ASOBISYSTEM, who will continue to promote the local culture, are set to contribute to the area with this new establishment and give the children a bright and colourful future.
