Experiencing Kiki & Lala’s Art Exhibition in Omotesando | Event Report

29.June.2019 | FEATURES / SPOT

Hi, everyone. I’m Midori from MMN’s editorial team.

 

Tanabata, also known at the Star Festival, is a traditional festival in Japan held annually on July 7 which celebrates the meeting of the deities Orihime and and Hikoboshi who are only able to see each other once a year due to being separated by the Milky Way. During the festival, Japanese people write their wishes on strips of paper and hang them on bamboo and go stargazing.

 

An eleven-day Tanabata event just began at Cat Street in Harajuku in collaboration with the Sanrio characters Kiki and Lala, also known as the Little Twin Stars. The sparkly and heart-throbbing event, titled LittleTwinStars MILKYWAY MUSEUM -T A N A B A T A- PRODUCED BY LIDDELL, invites people to celebrate Tanabata together with the characters amongst its gorgeous decorations and photo spots.

Upon entering the exhibition, visitors are met by a large crescent moon which they can sit on and hold star balloons to take a photo. The fluffy floating clouds are extremely cute too. The background also reminds one of Tanabata with its Milky Way-like starry sky.

This pure white wreath is inspired by Lala. Normally, you would hang your wishes from bamboo during Tanabata, but at this event you can put them on this wonderful wreath♡ The more strips of paper people hang on it the more busy and beautiful it becomes!

This cosy little booth is based on Kiki. Inside it is a bed of clouds which the Little Twin Stars are always sleeping on. The whole booth is packed full of fluffy clouds and cushions with draping stars so you can take some really nice photos. If you lay down on the bed you can see an enchanting light illuminate the ceiling. You won’t want to come away!

Right next to this is the “Moviegenic Booth.” A video plays while inside here featuring Kiki and Lala celebrating a cute Tanabata. This is a perfect spot to put on your Instagram story! And since it’s a video it means you’ll get a different photo from everyone else.

Floating overhead on the first floor are pink and light blue clouds which you can hang your wishes from too. If you search through them you’ll find wishes written by Kiki and Lala and their friends too, so be sure to take a look.

Up on the second floor you can get your hands on some exclusive Kiki and Lala merchandise and dine at the themed cafe.

 

The cafe is a collaboration with Achi Base, a cafe located in Nagano Prefecture’s village of Achi which is often called the most beautiful place in Japan for stargazing. Why not order one of their refreshing, limited-time herb teas? They are served in a cup with frozen berries. Grab a cup and serve yourself.

The liquid in the tank is a light blue colour, but…

When it runs into the cup it turns pink!

Even the tables in the cafe are super cute. If you pop your cup of tea on them they make for an extra kawaii photo.

No place in the entire exhibition has been neglected by Kiki and Lala as even behind the merchandise shelves are some sparkly pink decorations♡

 

Items at the shop include pink badges, folders and more―plenty of stationery and other things you can use in your day-to-day life. For more info on what’s on offer check out the official website (Japanese).

 

The exhibition runs on 8 slots per day so there is no need to worry about overcrowding and being unable to snap photos. Tickets can be found right here, so don’t miss out!

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Pompompurin Cheese Tarts

    17.May.2020 | FEATURES / FOOD

    With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s Easy Recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.

     

    In today’s recipe, I’ll be showing you how I made a batch of Pompompurin cheese tarts made using store-bought tart cups.

     

    Ingredients (Makes 9-10)

    9-10 store bought tart cups
    200g cream cheese (brought to room temperature)
    20-30g sugar
    1 egg yolk
    50ml fresh cream
    8g potato starch (katakuriko)
    Vanilla beans to taste (can be substituted for vanilla extract)
    1 tbsp lemon juice

     

    Step 1


    Pour the following ingredients into a bowl in this order: cream cheese→sugar→egg yolk→vanilla beans→fresh cream→potato starch. Mix well. Make sure when you put the potato starch in last that you sprinkle it thinly.

     

    Step 2
    Bake the tart cups in an oven at 180℃ for 15-20 minutes. If you don’t have store-bought cups, you can use small cocotte dishes.

     

    Step 3

    Leave to cool. Now you can start drawing the face.

    For the hat I used sliced chocolate, for the ears sliced cheese, and for the facial features a chocolate pen.

    Once you’ve drawn the face, it’s time to tuck in!

  • 2020 Sanrio Character Ranking: Top 10 Characters Of Second Round-Up Revealed

    13.May.2020 | FASHION

    The 2020 Sanrio Character Ranking awards began on April 10. Voting is now open and is set to run until May 25. The second round up of votes was revealed today for the current Top 10 characters.

    The first place contender has not changed from the first round-up of votes: Cinnamoroll still sits atop the throne for now. The fluffy white rabbit hasn’t seen No. 1 for two years but has won overall in 1st place twice in the past. In 2nd place is Pompompurin, while Pocchaco is in 3rd. It seems the Top 3 hasn’t changed since the first round-up. One surprising name to see however is YOSHIKITTY who wasn’t in the Top 10 of the first round-up and has already climbed to 5th place. Hello Kitty, who was last year’s reigning champion, has dropped down to 7th place. It’s looking to be a fierce fight, and there’s still just under two weeks to vote, so there’s no telling how this will all pan out.

     

    Votes are set to close on May 25, with final announcements being declared on June 9 at 11:00am (JST).

     

    1st Place: Cinnamoroll

    “Thank you everyone for all of your support! All of your love is really encouraging. I’m practicing singing and dancing at home and growing vegetables in my garden. I can’t wait to see you all. Stay healthy☆” (Translated by MMN from Japanese)

     

    2nd Place: Pompompurin

    “Thanks for your support. It’s lonely not being able to see you, but your support gives me life! I’m eating snacks,and  taking afternoon naps (which is my favourite thing to do). I’ll be super big when I see all of you! I can’t wait to see you. Please keep supporting me.” (Translated by MMN from Japanese)

     

    3rd Place: Pochacco

    “Thanks for all of your support, everyone! It’s super sad not getting to see you all, but I’m looking forward to see you again with smiling faces. I’m eating way too much banana ice cream and being careful not to get chubby. Keep supporting me in the second half of the fight too.” (Translated by MMN from Japanese)

     

    There are messages in Japanese from the other Top 10 characters together with pictures over on the official Sanrio Character Ranking Twitter page.

     

    Have you cast your vote yet? Who are you fighting for this year?

  • Cast Your Votes Overseas For the 2020 Sanrio Character Awards

    12.April.2020 | FASHION

    The 2020 Sanrio Character Ranking awards began on April 10. Voting is now open and is set to run until May 25.

    This year marks the 35th run of the annual Sanrio Character Ranking. Eighty of Sanrio’s 450+ characters have been chosen as entrants for 2020. Fans will cast their votes for their favourite character who will be ranked by how many votes they receive.

     

    The theme of this year’s ranking centres on fans cheering for characters who they have always loved and who have always been by their sides through the years. It’s a chance to let the character you love know that you are cheering them on. So that even more people can enjoy the Sanrio Character Ranking in 2020, Sanrio plans to feature lots of fun online content for people to get involved with online at home. Voting is also open to people around the world. The official Twitter page of the Sanrio Character Ranking will also be holding quizzes in Japanese as well as releasing bite-sized pieces of information about participating characters.

     

    Who are the big contenders to look out for this year?

    Hello Kitty won the 2019 Sanrio Character Awards, which we previously covered. She has won six times in the past. Will she blossom once more in 2020? Or will Cinnamoroll, who took the crown in 2017 and 2018, reign as champion this year? Or perhaps Pochacco will take everyone by surprise having climbed up the ranking in recent years, making it to 5th place last year. It’s sure to be another heated battle this year.

    Hello Kitty’s twin sister Hello Mimmy is a first-time entrant this year. Speaking about her sister’s win last year, Mimmy said: “Thank you so much for so many votes for Kitty last year! She was celebrating her 45th anniversary that year, so I was super-duper happy! Me, her twin sister Mimmy, will be joining too this year for the first time. I said already how nervous I am, so please cheer me and my sister on!” It will be interesting to see where Kitty and Mimmy fall on the list in relation to each other.

    The MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON editorial team took a trip to Q-pot CAFE. to try out their new afternoon tea experience, the “SAKURA Romantic Tea Party,” where we were treated to a pink kawaii tea party experience. This afternoon tea is available now until April 26, 2020.

    The cherry blossom designed decor and decorations welcomed us to an early spring. We ate in the cafe’s “SAKURA Room” for this review, which takes the Q-pot’s springtime cherry blossom experience to the next level.

    Romantic SAKURA Afternoon Tea Set w/ Drink – ¥2,400 (Serves 1) (Tax Included) *Photo shows tea set for two

    The top plate is beautifully adorned with cherry blossom St. Honoré cakes which are filled with a sumptuous gorgeous cherry blossom cream. There is also peach bavarois, strawberry cookies, and Q-pot CAFE.-original rich, cream ganache-filled macarons. The fallen cherry blossom petals on the plate are also in fact chocolate.

     

    Everything on the plate screams kawaii with the considerate attention that is given to all the little details.

    The bottom plate is the savoury stuff. We have hearty croissants filled with duck pastrami and cucumber that has been dressed with white wine vinegar. They are served with a white asparagus cream potage soup and skewered olives, mini tomatoes and pickles.

     

    The balance of flavours between the top and bottom plates is exquisite; the savoury food refreshes your palate after the sweet treats on top.

    The set comes with a cup of pink cherry blossom tea. Floral and fruity fragrances fill your nose as you go to take a sip, after which your taste buds are treated to the notes of cherry blossom and raspberry. This subtly sweet and refreshing drink is the perfect accompaniment to your dessert and meal line-up. It even comes with a little chocolate petal.

    The pink mont blanc gives cherry tree vibes. It’s made with cherry blossom bean paste cream, rich matcha chocolate, Japanese waguri chestnut, and chestnut cream. When  you fork the fluffy bean paste, you get plenty of chestnut cream and matcha chocolate with it. The sweetness of the cherry blossom bean paste and the subtle bitterness of the matcha go really well together. Q-pot. CAFE offers a selection of original macarons too which you can pick from including strawberry, chocolate, lemon, and melon. We wanted to go as pink as possible, so we went for the strawberry one!

    Romantic SAKURA Parfait w/ Drink – ¥1,850 (Tax Included)

    This strikingly gorgeous parfait is topped with cherry blossom cookies, cherry blossom meringue, and more. Its tall beautiful form is built up by a selection of ingredients, including Japanese flavours like cherry blossom cream and houjicha sauce. 

    But what we want to draw attention to is the transparent jelly in the middle of the glass. If you look really closely, it looks like dancing cherry blossom leaves.

    Q-pot CAFE. also has a range of other limited-time menu items, as well as food that looks just like real accessoriesーsomething the cafe is famous for. They also have accessories that look like real desserts, like a sugar cookie or crunchy meringue. Perfect for coordinating a spring look this year.
