The fair at Odakyu Department Store will be called Odakyu no Tanabata.

    Hi everyone, this is Midori from MMN’s Editorial Department.

    Are you familiar with Japan’s Star Festival called Tanabata? According to a legend that originated in China, two deities that were in love called Orihime and Hikoboshi could only meet once every year. Their meeting is represented by the stars Vega and Altair.  To celebrate the Star Festival, Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea are holding a special event to celebrate called Tanabata Days . This event will run from June 6 to July 7, 2019. There will be so much going on, but one thing I’m super excited about is the Tanabata Greeting Parade!

     

    From Mickey and Minnie who will make an entrance by rickshaw, there are so many characters you just have to see.

    Mickey and Minnie will be dressed as the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi. Mickey and Minnie are always riding the giant floats at parades. As the rickshaw is so small in comparison to the floats, this is an opportunity to feel closer to them both.

    Mickey and Minnie’s friends will be joining in the celebration in a completely brand new way. They will be dressed in Japanese-style clothes holding bamboo leaves. Donald and Daisy will be on the floats, but all the others will be taking part in the parade on foot! This is a fantastic way to get up close to your favourite characters.

    Disney Princes and Princesses will also be making an appearance at the Tanabata Greeting Parade. On a normal day, you can sometimes see the princes and princesses around the park greeting the guests, however seeing a princess walking romantically with her prince is a completely rare and precious sight! The princesses will also not be riding on the floats so you can feel close to them.

    Happily Ever After ♡

     

    The music includes Disney arrangements of children’s Star Festival songs such as Bamboo Leaves are Rustling (Sasanoha Sarasara) and the nostalgic Tanabata Sama. These are songs that Japanese people grew up with and have heard many times. The park will definately deliver a very special arrangment of these songs!

     

    Come enjoy the fun of the star festival this year with your favourite Disney characters!

    Hi, everyone. I’m Midori, part of the editorial team here at MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON.

     

    Tanabata, also known at the Star Festival, is a traditional annual festival in Japan which celebrates the meeting of the deities Orihime and and Hikoboshi who are only able to see each other once a year. Right now at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea a special Tanabata event is being held called “Tanabata Days.” It began on June 6 and will run until July 7.

     

    During the Tanabata season in Japan, people write their wishes on tanzaku, small pieces of paper, and hang them up before praying to the stars. If you head on over to Tokyo Disneyland right now you can do just that!

    At the entrance to Tokyo Disneyland in the World Bazaar is the “Wishing Place” where guests are invited to jot down their wishes. You’ll find it by spotting the two Tanabata decorations of Mickey and Minnie. If you look really close you’ll see that the characters are holding their own washing cards too. Be sure to sneak a peek♡

    You’ll also find Donald and Daisy to the side of Cinderella’s castle.

    Guests can get their own wishing cards from one of the cast members dressed in yukata. The cards are yellow. The cast also have pens and desks prepared for guests too.

    Once you’ve written your wish the next step is to hang it at the Wishing Place. The colours of the cards are different at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. Perhaps your wish will be granted?

    When the evening settles in the Wishing Place is lit up and renamed the Starlight Wishing Place. The illuminations represent the stars and constellations that float in the Milky Way, all references to Tanabata.

    You’re sure to enjoy a magical and romantic Tanabata at this event, so be sure to check it out. The visuals and lights are of course gorgeous, but the music is wonderful!

    Sanrio launched its #HelloGlobalGoals (#HelloSDGs) co-project with the United Nations at the UN headquarters on September 24 which sees their popular character Hello Kitty helping to spread the words about Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

    The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 global goals established by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 to be reached by the year 2030. This includes “No Poverty,” “Zero Hunger,” “Climate Action” and so on.

     

    Since September last year, Hello Kitty has been helping to promote SDGs on her YouTube channel as part of Japan’s involvement in the global efforts. The UN recognised this, and had Hello Kitty join them at the headquarters in New York at the SDG Media Zone presentation, which was attended by people around the world, where they announced #HelloGlobalGoals.

    Hello Kitty dressed up in the SDG promotional colours and appeared alongside Amina Mohammed, the Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, who expressed her wish for more people around the world to come to learn about SDGs, as well as to create a world where everybody can get along harmoniously and with kindness.

    At the event, all 17 goals were showcased on a huge art piece featuring Hello Kitty to break the project down and make it easier for people to understand.

    Up to now, Hello Kitty has posted videos about what Japan has been doing for the SDGs on her channel, but now she will begin posting about countries around the world at the behest of Amina Mohammed in a new video series as shown above.

    Hello Kitty’s dress for the #HelloGlobalGoals is rainbow-coloured, representing each of the goals. This is the dress she will wear for her forthcoming SDG promotional activities.

     

    Join Hello Kitty in her mission to spread word about SDGs and the #HelloGlobalGoals project.

    The building itself is situated within farmlands and is crowned with the adorable hidden face of Hello Kitty which can’t be seen from the ground.

    The Hello Kitty Dream Gallery will use 3D holograms to bring Hello Kitty to life before your very eyes. The story will follow our feline heroine in which her dream to become a pianist comes true. The Hello Kitty Dream Entertainment Show will make use of giant LED screens and Hello Kitty will put on a cute performance of song, dance and music.

     

    The menu was conceived by Japanese chef Hal Yamashita and uses healthy, organic ingredients to make incredible dishes that both taste amazing and are fun to look at. As well as vegan dishes, there will be a dessert buffet which also uses healthier alternatives.

     

    And if you’re hoping to stock up on Hello Kitty merchandise then you’re in luck―the site’s Hello Kitty shop will stock exclusive items you can’t get anywhere else.

     

    Immerse yourself in all things Hello Kitty at HELLO KITTY SHOW BOX, opening on August 12, 2019.
