  • Enjoy Pirate-Themed Food, Cocktails, Desserts And More at DisneySea This Summer

    18.July.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD / SPOT

    Tokyo DisneySea launched their special event called Disney Pirates Summer which will run until September 1. The event includes the launch of 16 colourful pirate-themed menus. 

     

    We headed straight to Mediterranean restaurant Cafe Portofino to fill ourselves up on the delicious menu. Cafe Portofino is the nearest restaurant to the entrance of DisneySea. Once you find the Mediterranean Harbor, you will find it on the right. 

     Special set: ¥ 1,880 ① Potatoes and Roast Beef Salad ②Linguine topped with Olive and Caper Tomato Sauce and served with Battered Yellowfin Sole Fish ③ Lychee Pudding with Lemon Jelly topped with Mixed Fruit ④ A choice of Soft Drink ⑤ Pay an extra ¥310 for an alcoholic drink. 

     

    I ordered the special set which is surprisingly big but definitely enough to satisfy the hungry pirates, who are always boasting about their enormous appetite. 

    I started with the potato and roast beef salad, which was dressed in balsamic vinegar. The taste was so refreshing which is just what you want during the summer. The rosemary-flavoured potatoes were soft and a perfect match with the beetroot.   

    The linguine was chewy and springy and the capers produced a mildly tangy flavour. I am not usually a big fan of olives, but these were very delicious. The battered fish was crispy and not oily, which is suitable for children and adults. 

    Just looking at the lychee pudding with lemon jelly is enough to make you feel refreshed. It is packed with fruit and takes on the image of a pirate’s treasure chest that is full of colourful rubies. This is the perfect way to clean your palate. 

     

    Ordering the special set allows you to choose a soft drink. If you pay an extra ¥310, you can change this drink into an alcoholic drink. 

    Sparkling Cocktail ( Rum and Mango Sherbet) On its own: ¥680

    This cocktail takes on the image of a pile of pirate treasure. Mango sherbet sits on top of the cocktail like nuggets of precious gold. The base of the cocktail is rum and peach and the refreshing alcoholic flavour of the rum is moderately sweet, spreading instantaneously through your mouth on your first sip. The solid texture of the mango makes the cocktail even more enjoyable, so please mix it thoroughly before devouring. 

    The bakery next to Cafe Portofino called Mamma Biscotti’s Bakery is selling desserts which come with souvenirs that you can take home with you.

    Mango Jelly and Orange Mousse with Souvenir Mug: ¥800

    Jelly, mousse and meringue whip is layered in the mug. This refreshing dessert not only looks pretty, but is also made up of a range of fun textures for you to enjoy. 

    You can take the souvenir mug back home with you. Its design features Mickey Mouse and friends dressed as pirates. 

    Coffee Roll Cake with Souvenir Plate: ¥800

    This is the perfect dessert for adults because it is slightly bitter. The layers of sponge, cream and bitter coffee makes for a range of delicious flavours. This plate’s design also features Mickey Mouse, who has dressed up as a pirate for the event. This would be perfect to take home with you to remember your trip!

     

    DisneySea is the perfect place to cool down this summer and create many wonderful memories, so please do pay a visit.

  • Tokyo Disneyland’s Hot Jungle Summer Event Offers Up Flames, Drenching Water & Delicious Food

    16.July.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD

    Hi, everyone! It’s Midori from MMN’s editorial team.

     

    Donald Duck is the star of Tokyo Disneyland right now with his Hot Jungle Summer festival that is running right now until September 1. It is packed full of events, limited time food and exclusive goodies all themed around summer.

     

    The limited time food is taking on water and fire motifs with restaurants serving up both cool and refreshing looking items and hot summery items. I paid a visit to the festival together with Kanako so we could try out these seasonal meals and drinks.

    Sparkling Drink (Blue Syrup) – ¥380

    We headed over to Boiler Room Bites located inside Adventureland and tired out their blue coloured “sparkling drink.” Blue syrup is added to the cup inside which chewy pieces of jelly bob up and down in the soda. Its appearance alone is enough to cool you down, it’s really pretty!

     

    They sell other sparkling drinks too, including a red coloured one with raspberry syrup and a yellow one with lemon syrup. It’s cute and fun for you and your friends to get different coloured ones♡

    For an extra ¥350 you can also get this huge yellow souvenir straw with Donald on the front. Simply kawaii♡

     

    Cream Shaved Ice (Tropical Fruits) – ¥550 (Tax Included)

    The tropical fruits flavour of Tokyo Disneyland’s popular cream shaved ice is available for the festival only. It’s a mix of shaved ice and soft serve ice cream.

    It’s sold at Troubadour Tavern in Fantasyland and comes with huge pieces of pineapple. It’s not too sweet and is the perfect refreshment for the hot summer weather.

    Special Set: ¥960 (Tax Included)

    You can get this special set at the refreshment corner of World Bazaar. It comes with a bright red hot dog topped with cheese and a vegetable sauce packed full of veggies. The sauce is spicy and will whet your appetite!

     

    It also comes with a drink and fries so you’re sure to get your lunchtime fill.

    Special Set: ¥1,080 (Tax Included)

    Camp Woodchuck Kitchen in Westernland is popular for its turkey legs. This mouthwatering set comes with a tasty hamburger seasoned with curry sauce and topped with cheese. Even in the hot summer this one is a must-try. It also comes with fries and a drink.

     

    The restaurant sells a whole load of other bites too like the onigiri burger, waffle sandwiches and more, all ideal for lunch. Sift through the menu and make your choice♡

    Mango Milk Soft Serve Ice Cream w/ Raspberry Sauce – ¥400 (Tax Included)

    If you want ice cream then you’ll want to head to Squeezer’s Tropical Juice Bar in Adventureland where they’re selling mango and milk flavoured soft serve ice cream drizzled in raspberry sauce. The sweetness of the ice cream and sourness of the raspberry sauce go together really well. It’s available for a limited time only so don’t miss out!

     

    That goes for everything else listed here, it’s all limited-time-only, so if you’re in Tokyo this summer then be sure to head on over ASAP!

  • Get Soaked at Tokyo DisneySea’s Pirates Summer Battle Event

    14.July.2019 | FEATURES / SPOT

    True summer is on the horizon as Japan’s rainy season slowly begins to let up. Tokyo DisneySea’s special summertime event Disney Pirates Summer began on July 7, and if you’re looking to cool down from the hot weather, you won’t want to miss the Pirates Summer Battle Get Wet show that is running until September 1.

     

    The show is inspired by the world of Pirates of the Caribbean and features Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbossa and his band of pirate comrades. It felt like being thrown into the sea life ourselves when we visited.

     

    It begins with Barbossa, who occupies Port Paradiso, and some of his fellow pirates setting forth to plunder Captain Jack Sparrow’s legendary ship. The remaining pirate ruffians left at the port begin loitering around.

    The sound of a horn then burst across the water as the legendary ship appeared. On board is Jack Sparrow who has been defeated by Barbossa to which his fellow pirates cheer. Barbossa then set his eyes on us to become pirates too and shouted that he was going to find out if we had what it takes.

    The test began and water was fired at the crowd, the pirates yelling at us things, “So ye wanna be pirates?” and “You want treasure too, don’t ya?”

    It was at that moment that Jack Sparrow appeared once again on a rickety ship. The crowd were tested on what they had learned and were encouraged to intimidate Jack Sparrow, but…

    …all of a sudden a merry banquet began! Everybody soaked each other in water, sang and drink. It was during this time that the sly Jack Sparrow took action, causing Barbossa to enrage with fury.

    With water shooting and flames blazing during the final battle, who came out victorious? You’ll have to visit Tokyo DisneySea to find your! Enter the wild world of the pirates and get wet this summer for Disney Pirates Summer.

  • Get Drenched With Zootopia Characters This Summer At Tokyo Disneyland

    14.July.2019 | FEATURES / SPOT

    Every year, Disneyland puts on a show where everyone gets soaked. This year’s show features Nick and Judy from Zootopia. With Cinderella’s Castle as the main stage, large quantities of water is sprayed everywhere. I headed over to check out the commotion as soon as possible with Instagrammer Kanako.

     

    This summer, the event Judy and Nick’s Jumpin’ Splash is taking place four times every day. It is possible to apply to experience the fun at the centre stage area close to the castle, however, winners are chosen at random. You can apply for all of the showings except the first one of the day. You can apply by smartphone app or by heading to Tomorrowland Hall. 

    If I still haven’t made myself clear, the central viewing area will be splashed with lots of water, so if you are going to take part, make sure you wear a raincoat. You can buy one from the shops when you get to Disneyland. 

    While the movie’s theme song “Try Everything” plays, Judy and Nick take to the stage and dance. 

     

    Just when everyone gets into the dancing…

    Everyone gets soaked by water that surges out from Cinderella’s Castle! We were carelessly standing right in the middle of the danger zone so we were mercilessly drenched. I recommend you keep clear of the centre of the area and wear your raincoat as tight as you can!

    For the latter half of the show, the dancers grabbed hoses and continued to drench us. Everything was happening in the moment. It was all an exciting blur that was over in what felt like seconds. 

    This show showered away the summer heat within seconds. You can enjoy getting soaked in the centre of the action or watch other people getting soaked from a safe distance. There are only three chances to take part each day. This is a limited chance to make extra special memories, so please apply!

     

    It’s not as bad as it seems. If you wear your raincoat properly, your clothes will not get wet, so there is no need to worry about ruining your glamorous look if that is the reason you don’t want to take part. 

     

    Plunge straight into the summer fun at Tokyo Disneyland!

  • Using the camera app, “SNOW” you can create unique photos which look just like instant camera photos

    18.November.2017 | FASHION

    The camera app, SNOW is known for its cute and fun processing features. For fashion conscience girls, the creating of instant camera-like photos using SNOW is gaining popularity. Here, we will explain what kind of processes are possible with SNOW.

    1

    First, start up SNOW and choose your selfie filter. Choose one of the camera icons from the icons enclosed in the red box. Next, choose the filter of your choice. For this example, we have chosen the Andriod version of SNOW.Try using the 3 filters enclosed in the blue box, starting from the one on the left.

    2

    For an iPhone use the camera filter.

    3

    Here is the first filter. It creates a faint-looking photo. The photo has a transient-feel to it.

    4

    The second filter creates a more austere-feeling image. This filter is recommended for taking cool landscape photos.

    5

    The last filter creates a photo where the center of the photo is clear and focused but the surroundings are a bit blurred. This makes for a retro-looking photo. Orange colors are highlighted so it is just right for taking café food items. For all filters the date appears automatically in the right corner of the photo so when you use a smartphone it is recommended that you take a photo with your smartphone on its side.

     

    Another filter that is highly recommended is this one.

    6

    Choose the “collage” icon from the icons enclosed in the red box. Next, choose the filter of your choice from the filters enclosed in the blue box.

    7

    When you take a photo using this filter it looks similar to the frame of a film camera. It makes for a very unique photo, one you will want to upload on your SNS.

     

    Better than having to carry a bulky film camera, why not just use SNOW to get a similar quality photo. If you get bored with the same style photos, why not try using SNOW and create film camera style photos.
