  • Akita the Dog is Taking Over Shibuya to Promote Akita Prefecture

    01.September.2018 | SPOT

    Akita is the name of a dog (who is also of the dog breed Akita) who has been used to promote tourist information about Akita Prefecture in northern Honshu since 2016. The 4th promotional campaign will be run from September 3 to October 31.

    The campaign is being taken to Shibuya in Tokyo. This is an ideal location because not only are there many tourists in Shibuya, but it’s also affiliated with the famous dog Hachiko, who was also an Akita dog born in Akita Prefecture

     

    The campaign’s catchphrase “GO! AKITA” has been changed to “Yeah! AKITA” to express Akita the dog’s joyful voice for his hometown as well as to capture traveller’s reactions to visiting the prefecture.

    Look out for the big advertising posters of Akita the dog featuring photos posted on his social media that show the beauty of Akita Prefecture such as at Nekobari Iwa and next to a Kashima (above).

     

    10,000 free rubbish bags will also be handed out featuring an Akita the dog “Happy HalloWan!” design – with wan being the Japanese equivalent of ‘woof.’ The streets of Shibuya become very messy during Halloween, so Akita will be there to lend a paw!

    Akita will be dotted all around Shibuya promoting Akita Prefecture, so be sure to find him everywhere!

  • Japan’s First Fidget Spinner Pop-up Shop to Open in Shibuya Loft!

    27.July.2017 | SPOT

    Who hasn’t heard of fidget spinners by now? The first ever fidget spinner pop-up shop will be opening in Japan this month. They are called “hand spinners” in Japan, and for two days, the “Nippon Hand Spinner Club” will be open in Shibuya Loft.

    This is the first pop-up shop in Japan to specialise in fidget spinners. There will be 30 varieties to choose from, and you can even have a go at testing them out. The fidget spinner is a compact palm-sized toy with a bearing in the middle which allows you to spin it. With just one spin, it will continue to go around and around for several minutes. The fidget spinner boom began in America at the end of 2016 and has now found its way over to Japan.

    There are numerous ways to play with a fidget spinner besides watching it. You can compete with other people to see how long you can make it spin, and you can even learn how to do tricks with them.

    Whether you own a fidget spinner or have never even held one, Shibuya Loft has a big line-up for you to choose from and try. If you’re in Tokyo, head on over and find one you like!
