  • Report: Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s Tasty Time in Gastropolis Kobe – Sweets Edition

    03.December.2022 | FEATURES / FOOD / SPOT

    Kobe is filled with famous sightseeing spots like the nostalgic Ijinkan neighborhood and port. The city is packed with fashionable shops and restaurants and is highly regarded for its selection of tasty sweets!

    The port city, with over 150 years of history, has fostered a unique and diverse culinary culture.

     

    Recently, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu began starring in a series of promotional videos for the Gastropolis Kobe project. The artist traveled to the city to partake in plenty of delicious treats, and MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON went along for the ride! Here are some of the singer’s favorite spots around town.

    Kobe, known as a city where East meets West, is lined with sweets shops that are unique to the area.

     

    The tea salon TOOTH TOOTH Dekoboko Sabo opened in 2019 in the Kobe City Museum and offers a menu that mixes Western food and sweets with tea and ingredients from traditional Japanese cuisine. Kyary ordered the Dekoboko Sabo Afternoon Tea Set, a collection of western sweets blended with the essence of traditional Japanese flavors. Guests are invited to enjoy their tea and sweets in a one-of-a-kind space filled with Meiji period flare and retro Western furniture. Those interested will need to make a reservation, so be sure to remember the next time you’re in Kobe.

     

    TOOTH TOOTH Decoboco Sabo

    Address: 24 Kyomachi, Chuo Ward, Kobe (Inside the Kobe City Museum)

    Hours: 9:30-17:30 (Last Order at 16:30) 

    Closed Mondays

    Official Site: https://toothtooth.com/restaurant/decoboco-sabo

    The next stop was Kobe Nankin-machi, one of the three major Chinatowns in Japan. Kobe MILK is known nationwide for its Apricot Pudding, which is made with local ingredients. The raw apricot pudding is mixed with milk brought from the foot of Mt. Rokko and other ingredients from Hyogo Prefecture. Of course, Kyary ordered some, and was amazed by its fluffy texture. You can only enjoy it in Kobe–also, the shop sells other puddings mixed with seasonal fruits, so don’t miss those either!

     

    Kobe MILK

    Address: Shin-Motomachi Building 1F (1 Motomachi-dori, Chuo-ku, Kobe)

    Hours: Weekdays 9:30-19:00 / Weekends 9:30-19:30

    Official Site: https://kobe-milk.com

    For Kyary’s final stop, the singer visited the Moore House, a cafe located in a building with over 100 years of history. Guests are surrounded by greenery, and the Western-style building is incredibly elegant. The Strawberry Mille-feuille Kyary ordered was created by an expert patissier and based on the strawberry mille-feuille recipe from the legendary French restaurant Maxim’s de Paris in Ginza. A generous amount of custard cream complements the crispy pie crust and enhances the sweetness of the fresh strawberries. We’d recommend it with a glass of champagne–if you’re of age.

    Kitano Ijin-kan Moore House

    Address: 2-9-3 Kitanocho, Chuo-ku, Kobe

    Hours: 11:00-17:00

    Closed Tuesdays

    The streets of Kobe are packed with sweets that you can only enjoy if you visit. Why not come experience these incredible spots like Kyary did?

  • Interview Series Vol.3: What Does ‘Kawaii’ Mean to You?

    14.November.2022 | FASHION / FEATURES

    “Japan is such an interesting country, where so many cultures blend and evolve.”

     

    Moshi Moshi Nippon is dedicated to sharing Japanese pop culture with audiences around the world. Recently, we launched a new interview series with foreign influencers active in Japan, and for the third edition, we’re chatting with Zhu Zhu! A popular influencer with over 2 million followers on Weibo, Zhu Zhu claims that since coming to Japan, her fashion has become ‘softer.’ We sat down to ask her what kind of Kawaii she’s found in Japan.

    Q. Why did you first come to Japan?

    “In 2013, I moved to Japan with my family because Beijing’s air pollution had become really bad. It’s already been nine years!”

     

    Zhu Zhu when she first came to Japan

     

    Q. When you first arrived in Japan, what surprised you?

    “When I first came to Japan, what really surprised me was the wide use of the word ‘kawaii.’ It’s so interesting that literally anything can be called kawaii. Sure, it makes sense to call girls, animals, or clothes cute, but in Japan, people call things cute that people in other countries would never refer to in that way. I mean, I think calling things ‘cute’ when you mean ‘good’ is something really commonplace here. (laugh)” 

     

    Q. Tell us what you find the most Kawaii in Japan!

    “There are so many cute things in Japan, but I think that the sweets take the cake. I was surprised by how small they are unlike in other countries. And there are so many kinds! Cakes, baked goods, wagashi, they’re all so incredibly kawaii!”

     

    Q. How did your encounter with Kawaii culture in Japan change you?

    “Since I first came into contact with the Japanese version of kawaii, I think my style has become softer. When I was overseas, I typically just worse really simple outfits and makeup, but now, I’m always conscious of looking girly and cute.”

     

    Q.In Japan, what are you interested in right now? Where do you want to visit in the future?

    “I recently read an article about Yufuin Floral Village, which is England-inspired. It looks so cute and I really want to go!”

     

    Q. Do you have anything to say to our readers who want to visit Japan in the future?

    “Japan is such an interesting country, where so many cultures blend and evolve. No matter how many times you visit, you can always find something new. Please visit!”

    Moshi Moshi Nippon is dedicated to sharing Japanese pop culture with audiences around the world.

    Q. Why did you first come to Japan?

    “When I was in middle school, my favorite English teacher taught me some Japanese. After that, I started to get into Japanese literature and manga, and I was really influenced by a Shuji Terayama play in high school. Japanese content started to become a part of my daily life, and I started to get curious about the country itself. I wanted to see the place where all of these amazing things were created with my own eyes. Now I’ve been in Japan for almost ten years!”

     

    -Photo2

    Q. When you first arrived in Japan, what surprised you?

    “I thought that people who dressed really eccentrically would be difficult to 

    approach. I had no idea what kinds of lives they led, and I was nervous about 

    talking to them. After coming to Japan, I realized how nice they were! 

    They work so hard, I was incredibly impressed!”

     

    Q. What do you think about Kawaii culture in Japan?

    Kawaiiといえば、日本の音楽はすごくカワイイと思います!パフォーマンスの現場、制作スタンスを問わず、音楽そのものに対する熱い思いが伝わってきます。音楽は人生にどう向き合うかを教えてくれると言っても良いと思います。そのくらい、日本の音楽には影響を受けました。

     

    -Photo3

     

    Q. How did your encounter with Kawaii culture in Japan change you?

    “My first real exposure to Kawaii culture was in middle school. I bought a ton of Japanese magazines like KERA and Gothic&Lolita Bible, and reading those made me realize that I could be who I wanted to be and dress how I wanted to dress. I could express myself as much as I wanted to. Kawaii is something you define yourself.” 

     

    -Photo 4

     

    Q.In Japan, what are you interested in right now? Where do you want to visit in the future?

    “A friend and coworker of mine in the art world recently told me that Toyama is the “Venice of Japan,” and that it’s totally different when compared to any other Japanese city. I’d like to visit, so I can see a totally unique side of Japan!”

    Q.Do you have anything to say to our readers who want to visit Japan in the future?

  • Interview: What Type of ‘Kawaii’ Did This Popular Foreign Influencer Find in Japan?

    03.October.2022 | FASHION / FEATURES

    Kawaii is marshmallow-flavored medicine for the soul.”

     

    Moshi Moshi Nippon is dedicated to sharing Japanese pop culture with audiences around the world, and today, we’re featuring a foreign influencer living and working in Japan! This time, we interviewed Etsuna, a popular influencer from China, discussing how Yume Kawaii fashion brings her comfort and the many types of ‘kawaii’ she’s found during her time in Japan. 

     

    Q. What brought you to Japan?

    “After graduating with a major in animation, I was working at a university in Shanghai as a teacher, but I decided to enroll in Tama Art University’s graduate program to study for my master’s degree. That’s when I came to Japan, and I’ve been here for 15 years!”

     

    Q. When you first came to Japan, what surprised you? Was anything different than what you had imagined? 

    “Everyone wore such bold makeup, and that really surprised me! When I first came to Japan 15 years ago, I think the gyaru trend was still big, and a lot of girls had that strong Harajuku style and big personalities. Heavy eye makeup and blush was the big thing. I thought everyone was getting ready to film for a TV show.” 

     

    Q. What do you think of when you heard the word ‘kawaii’ in Japan?

    “MOSHI MOSHI ROOMS, character cafes, and Yume Kawaii fashion…they are all so unique and so adorable! Those things are what I think of when I hear the word ‘kawaii.’”

     

    Q. Did finding Japanese kawaii culture change you in any way?

    “Before I experienced kawaii culture, I was a teacher, so I wore a lot of black, white, and gray every day. But after encountering kawaii style for the first time, I started experimenting with different kawaii subcultures, like the Mori Girl trend back in the mid-2000s. Eventually, I fell in love with Yume Kawaii (Dreamy Kawaii) fashion, which is filled with pastels and a fantasy-like aesthetic. I’ve been dressing in that particular style for about ten years now. To me, kawaii is like marshmallow-flavored medicine for the soul. It’s very healing.” 

     

    Q. When it comes to Japan, what interests you now? Where would you like to visit in the future?

    “Today, it feels like Japanese fashion is becoming more and more simple, and the Harajuku kawaii trend is starting to disappear. Is that because people don’t like standing out in that over-the-top way? Do they feel embarrassed if they dress differently than most people? I’ve met a lot of people who love Yume Kawaii fashion, but they might not have the courage to wear it themselves. That’s why I’m currently researching how to bring Yume Kawaii to AR. If I can bring it to the virtual world in a way that blends with the real world, I can create a brand-new experience for everyone. Using mobile AR technology, people will be able to transform their everyday clothes into something with more Yume Kawaii style!”

    Q. Please give a few words to those living abroad who are interested in visiting Japan!

    If you really want to experience Japanese kawaii culture, stay at MOSHI MOSHI ROOMS in Harajuku! There are so many fashionable people in Tokyo too, and if you hang out near Harajuku Laforet on the weekend, you’ll see people taking plenty of pictures. Come have a special trip to Japan and surround yourself with all things kawaii! Have fun!”
