Häagen-Dazs Matcha Salon to Open in Roppongi in April

22.March.2019 | FOOD

Häagen-Dazs Japan will opened a matcha-packed Matcha Salon for a limited-time at Roppongi Hills Cafe from April 24 to May 5.

Häagen-Dazs first arrived in Japan in 1984 and has since been enjoyed for 35 years. To celebrate this landmark, this Matcha Salon will serve up a 6-item green tea course to commemorate the Häagen-Dazs Green Tea ice cream, the first flavour that hit the Japanese market.

 

After the green tea flavoured ice cream was released Häagen-Dazs went on to serve up flavours developed in America. In coming to Japan the company wanted to create a flavour that more met the demands of Japanese palates, and so they settled on matcha, an ingredient that has been enjoyed in Japan for hundreds of years. Much trial and error was carried out to bring out the creamy flavour of Häagen-Dazs ice cream and matcha bitterness which is what led to the Häagen-Dazs green tea ice cream.

 

Tea leaf management is no easy task. The flavour of leaves can change completely from various factors such as the weather. To ensure Häagen-Dazs Green Tea could be preserved and made consistently, staff carry out organoleptic tests to create a tea leaf blend that Häagen-Dazs can use.

 

Since matcha is weak to heat and light, the powdering of the tea leaves is done in a dark room. This is done inside a millstone which does not heat up as easily as metal, ensuring residual heat does not get into the tea leaves. Because of this delicate process, only a dozen or so grams of matcha can be made in one millstone every hour.

 

Special cups were even developed to package the green tea ice cream which makes it hard for light to get in.

 

If you’ve yet to try this special ice cream made for Japanese people then make sure you get the chance.

  • Tokyo’s Mickey Mouse Exhibition ‘THE TRUE ORIGINAL & BEYOND’ Previews 5 Japanese Artworks

    14.October.2020 | FASHION / SPOT

    The Asahi Shimbun and Nippon TV are set to host an exhibition centred on Mickey Mouse at the MORI ARTS CENTER GALLERY in Roppongi, Tokyo, from October 30, 2020 to January 11, 2021, in celebration of 90 years since Mickey Mouse’s screen debut. The exhibition will showcase works shown at the Mickey: The True Original Exhibition held in New York in 2018-2019.

     

    Before the exhibition opens, five participating Japanese artists have each revealed their never-before-seen artworks which will be on display.

     

    The Tokyo exhibition will be a travel back through time, looking at Mickey Mouse from the past to the present. It will be split into three zones: “The Origin,” “The True Original,” and “Beyond.” The five artists showcasing their work early will be featured in the “Beyond” zone and include Tomoko Oshima, Kosuke Kawamura, Nana Soeda, Calligrapher MAMI, and WAKU. Below are their featured pieces along with their comments.

     

    Tomoko Oshima | Comment

    “What’s fascinating about Mickey Mouse is, for reasons I can’t begin to work out, how he became a part of each person’s life. I was raised in a household that banned cartoon characters, so it always felt like something unobtainable. Mickey Mouse is like a hero to all of us. He’s dazzling and radiant, a kind of being I can’t look directly in the face of. When working on my Mickey Mouse art [for the exhibition], my concept was to create a Mickey that’s special only to me, so I challenged myself to turning that Mickey Mouse that everyone feels happy looking at and loves into my usual art style.”

    Oheya (Bedroom), Tomoko Oshima

     

    Kosuke Kawamura | Comment

    “What I find fascinating about Mickey Mouse is that no matter how old I get, he always transports me away from the real world to a world of dreams. He’s an idol of mine. I even have my own collection of merchandise I’ve been collecting over the years. For the exhibition, I needed to creating something for the Beyond [zone], so I tried shaping Mickey Mouse from how I see him in my head. I’ve always made sure to balance my artwork in such a way that it can be seen in two ways. When you stand close, you can see the detailed composition, but when you step away, it looks different. This time around I gave myself a little challenge and made the silhouette of his face and hands using flowers. If you get close to it you’ll see that it’s made up of lots of flowers, but stand from afar and you’ll be able to see the facial expressions and his pointing figure. I’d like people to give both a go, so when you’ve looked at it up close then take a step back.”

    Untitled, Kosuke Kawamura

    Nana Soeda | Comment

    “I feel Mickey Mouse’s appeal from his long history and how he has changed overtime, so I tried to express these aspects in the piece I made. The theme for it is centred on Mickey Mouse in the future, so when I was thinking about what he might look like in the future, I looked to past [designs] and tried fixing them up. So in my piece there’s a trace of looking back at past Mickey Mouse while giving him an update. Creating those ‘futures’ made me feel like I was walking through my own past and processes. You can’t know exactly what’s to come in the future even for someone as internationally popular as Mickey Mouse. But by learning from past memories and mistakes, you can draw on those to create a future, don’t you think? That’s something I wanted to convey in this piece, and I did so by creating something that’s close to the Mickey Mouse of the past with both 2D and 3D surfaces. The Mickey Mouse I drew is the one of ages past that looks completely different to his appearance today. But those look at it might feel something newer about it than older. That, or they might feel uncomfortable seeing him in a way they’re not used to. I want people to take their time looking at both and feeling whatever they feel when they do.”

    LOVE, Nana Soeda

     

    Calligrapher MAMI | Comment

    “I’ve captured Mickey Mouse’s silhouette as its own kanji by using calligraphy. His appearance is iconic worldwide, and by making him recognisable through this common language, I’ve tried to create a new kanji, effectively breaking the language barrier of calligraphy, something which is difficult in itself to overcome for people. Another thing with calligraphy is that you can write the same piece hundreds of times which means it can be fine tuned over and over. I believe that overlaps with Mickey Mouse’s design as he has too has evolved for a hundred years. But by no means have his designs he just spring out of existence immediately. He has undergone trial and error through the times, and always shines bright. It’s because of everyone who will see my piece as this exhibition that I’ve been able to create something I can feel from the heart.”

    ZEN Mickey, Calligrapher MAMI

     

    WAKU | Comment

    “I think the appeal of Mickey Mouse lies in the fact that people around the world all remember him from their childhoods. We form memories during our childhoods, and ever I’ve been able to recognise those memories inside of me, Mickey Mouse was something that was always close to me. When I see three circles together, Mickey Mouse’s face comes into my mind. He might be the first internationally recognisable symbol. I felt that the affinity between symbolism and neon signs is very high. So for my piece, I incorporated the techniques used for traditional Japanese neon signboards, something which I see less of these days. I took that and created the three Mickey Mouse circles using light.”

    SEL OCTAGON TOKYO—Japan’s first ‘private booth lounge club’—has reopened after undergoing a revamp and is set to deliver the latest in cutting edge technology together with an incredible DJ line-up once again to the people of Roppongi in Tokyo.

     

    SEL OCTAGON TOKYO’s luxury space has been given a pop makeover to serve what they are calling ‘luxury pop.’ They mean to serve up night life in a new and fun way for clubbers.

     

    The night club and DJ bar has done a first in Japan by removing the dance floor and replaced them with socially-distanced seated areas with sofas and chairs. The club also opens at 8pm everyday (except Sundays) so that even those catching the last train or coming from work can make it in time to party.

    The ‘lounge club’ was designed under the South Korean creative director of OCTAGON who has also cemented popularity in some of the world’s biggest night life hubs such as Ibiza, Miami, Las Vegas, Seoul, and more.

     

    The space is split into individual private booths so that clubbers can enjoy a safe night. SEL OCTAGON TOKYO also benefits from a high quality sound system to blare out plenty of booty-shaking dance music.

    The club is taking all the necessary precautions and outlined by Japan’s Night Club Entertainment Association including providing face masks, alcohol gel, taking people’s temperature, keeping the venue sanitised, and so on. Before entering the actual club, guests must also pass through an anti-bacterial mist gate.

     

    There’s also a high-efficient ventilator system in place that stays on the entire time, renewing the air in the room every 4-6 minutes.

  • Häagen-Dazs Reveals Chestnut Filling and Soy Flour Brown Sugar Syrup Mochi Ice Creams

    09.September.2020 | FOOD

    Häagen-Dazs Japan is bringing back its Hana Mochi series of mini cup ice creams this year in two flavours: Chestnut Paste and Ginsen Soy Flour Brown Sugar Syrup, both of which will be released across Japan on September 29, 2020 for a limited time.

     

    The Hana Mochi series takes Häagen-Dazs’s smooth and rich ice creams and adds soft, chewy mochi to it. The Ginsen Soy Flour Brown Sugar Syrup was released last year and proved hugely popular, while the Chestnut Paste is a new mouth watering contender this time around.

    The Ginsen Soy Flour Brown Sugar Syrup ice cream is made using dark roasted soy flour and is mixed with brown sugar syrup before being topped with mochi and a blend of yellow and black soybeans.

    The new Chestnut Paste is a super sweet chestnut infusion and has an authentic Japanese wagashi confection taste to it. The ice cream is also laced with a chestnut sauce as well as salt to bring out the sweetness of the chestnut even more.

     

    Both are the perfect flavours for autumn-time this year.

  • Häagen-Dazs Releases Honey Sweet Potato Ice Cream in Japan

    02.September.2020 | FOOD

    Häagen-Dazs Japan released its new “Honey Sweet Potato” flavour of mini cup ice cream on September 1, 2020. The ice cream is a combination of two types of potatoes with high sugar content.

    Roasted sweet potato is a popular food eaten in Japan during the autumn season. By roasting them slowly, you allow the natural sweetness of the sweet potatoes to come through, giving them that distinct autumn-time flavour. And it’s these potatoes that are used to make Häagen-Dazs’s new ice cream.

     

    Sweet and rich honey-loaded ice cream

    Sweet potatoes are naturally very sweet and have a syrupy texture to them, something which has been recreated to make this ice cream. As you spoon the ice cream, the melty honey sauce laced throughout the ice cream trickles.

     

    Preserving the natural sweetness of the sweet potato

    Roasting the sweet potatoes actually draws out their natural sweetness. Combined with Häagen-Dazs’s full-bodied milk, they have created a rich and subtly sweet ice cream.

     

    Create your own Häagen-Dazs autumn recipe

    Häagen-Dazs has also created a video using their vanilla flavour to showcase how to make your own ice cream dessert using pumpkin and cinnamon.
