    The world of Beauty and the Beast brought to life

    The area connects Belle’s village to Beast’s castle by way of the forest. At the entrance to the village, guests will immediately spot the cottage of Maurine, Belle’s father and the vilage inventor. Beyond that is Gaston’s water fountain as well as a restaurant inspired by Gaston’s bar. There are also other shops that Belle visits in the film, such as the bookshop. It’s like stepping into the magical world itself.

    When you leave the village and head through the forest, you are met by the spectacle that is Beast’s castle, coloured in a cute pink. There’s a large-scale attraction inside called “Enchanted Tale of Beauty and the Beast.”

     

    The Tokyo Disneyland-original attraction “Enchanted Tale of Beauty and the Beast”

    The attraction, located inside the towering 30m-tall castle, features magical cups that guests board. The cups dance in rhythm to music from the film as they take guests through iconic moments seen in the Disney classic.

  • Slam Dunk Manga’s Second Art Book Collection to be Published in 6 Countries Worldwide

    26.September.2020 | ANIME&GAME

    Japanese magazine and newspaper company Kosaido has been confirmed as being in charge of the printing, binding, and publishing of the second Slam Dunk manga art book PLUS/SLAM DUNK ILLUSTRATIONS 2 which will launch in France, Italty, Thailand, South Korea, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.

     

    The art book was originally released by Kosaido in Japan in April of this year and will launch in six countries overseas.

     

    Kashimi (Kosaido Salesperson) | Comment

    “Following the Japanese release, I am in charge of helping to publish the overseas edition of PLUS/SLAM DUNK ILLUSTRATIONS in six countries and regions around the world, something which has been made possible by Shueisha and [Slam Dunk creator] Takehiko Inoue. It has been a lot of work to ensure that the content of the book lives up to the same standards as the Japanese edition, including the quality of Shueisha’s work, the quality of the Slam Dunk content, and the zeal that Takehiki Inoue has towards the quality and the book. It has been a fantastic experience and a lot of fun working on it.”

     

    Ando (Kosaido Printer) | Comment

    “Being in charge of printing has shown me just how much Shueisha puts into their art books, and when I think about Kosaido’s print work being seen overseas, I get even more excited. We’re using a printing technique for this book that no other company is using called concentric screening which allows for detailed expression in the print. To make the dots in the print even tidier this time around, we’ve also been carrying out maintanence on the rollers, cleaning the machines, and other things which will allow for a greater level of quality. The finish of the book will also be taken to the next level by choosing a powder that has much less rough deposits. The printing team has put all of their efforts into creating this book.”

     

    The first Slam Dunk art collection, INOUE TAKEHIKO ILLUSTRATIONS, was first published in 1997. This new book will feature 130 illustrations specially selected by the manga’s author and illustrator Takehiko Inoue as well as sketches, never before seen drafts, and more. Inoue has also drawn 14 new illustrations for the book including the cover.

    26.September.2020 | SPOT

    UDS HOTELS is set to open YUEN BETTEI DAITA, a new onsen ryokan (hot spring Japanese inn), in Shimokitazawa, Tokyo, on September 28, 2020. The hotel is just a 1-minute walk from Setagaya-Daita Station and an 8-minute walk from Shimokitazawa Station.

    The Design

    YUEN BETTEI DAITA bases itself on the appearance of residences seen back in Tokyo back in the day. The hotel has taken in furniture and materials that were inherited in a thatched-roof residence in Setagaya which has over a 100 year history, which gives a nod to the history and culture of traditional Japanese architecture, while still incorporating more modern techniques in the wooden roofing and other areas. All of this combines to create a sophisticated Japanese culture-imbued space.

     

    Guest Rooms

    There are 35 guest rooms in total, each coming in one of seven types ranging from 19㎡-32㎡. The rooms open up into a tatami and seating area. Guests are provided with yukata and leather-soled geta shoes, and are treated to Japanese tea and confections from local shops.。

    Open-air onsen baths (1st Floor)

    The large open-air baths receive water from Odakyu Hotel de Yama’s own water source in Hakone. Guests can enjoy looking at a traditional Japanese garden while they bathe and listen to the sound of the water from Mount Fuji. The female baths also have scented mist saunas while the male baths have dry saunas.

     

    Cooking & Tea Ceremony (1st Floor)

    Kappou Tsukikage

    Enjoy seasonal vegetables harvested from the local farms in Setagaya as well as Japanese sake and wine chosen to pair perfectly with the dishes.

     

    Saryou Tsukikage

    Guests can also experience the Japanese ceremony with local tea. Daita was once rich with tea farms, and so guests can look forward to enjoying delicious and authentic tea.

     

    SOJYU spa

    If guests want to relax the hotel’s SOJYU spa offers full body massage, original essential oil treatments, and much more. The spa will also be open to non-guests from spring next year.
