6 Sailor Moon Cafes Opening Across Japan Including Tokyo and Osaka

01.October.2019 | ANIME&GAME / FOOD / SPOT

LEGS COMPANY, LTD. has announced that it will open six Sailor Moon cafes for its Sailor Moon Cafe 2019 event across Japan this year. The opening dates differ from branch to branch, but the first two will open in Tokyo and Osaka on October 3. See all the opening dates in the Information section below.

 

LEGS held the Sailor Moon Cafe 2017 event back in September 2017 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Sailor Moon. The event’s theme focused around adulthood imbued with a hint of cuteness. The cafes were so popular that they had a second “encore” run in December of the same year.

 

This year, LEGS has created an entirely new concept.

The theme this year is “Girls Night Out,” and the menu line-up stays true to it, featuring food and drinks all ladies are sure to enjoy on a night out.

5 Sailor Tortilla Wrap Sandwiches – ¥1,590 (Not available at the Saitama cafe)

Pretty Girl’s Brunch Pancakes – ¥1,590 (Available at lunchtime only)

This is just a select look at what’s on the menu―there are many other themed foods and desserts too!

Acrylic Key Ring (12 Designs Chosen Randomly) – ¥650

Clear Bag (1 Design) – ¥1,800

Plate (1 Design) – ¥2,200

The artwork for select cafe-exclusive merchandise was done by popular creator Etoile et Griotte who makes items for girls who love cute things, and Japanese illustrator Jenny Kaori, who creates cute, fashionable and alternative works.

Every person who books a seat in advance (¥650 before tax) at the cafe will receive one of the 5 above-pictured ticket holders chosen randomly.

If you dine at the cafe, you’ll get one of the 4 above-pictured lunch mats chosen randomly.

And if you order a drink, you’ll get one of the 10 above-pictured coasters chosen randomly.

  • Chiba City Museum of Art Brings Ukiyo-e Exhibition to Osaka’s Takashimaya Department Store

    21.September.2021 | SPOT

    New Prints: The Evolutionary Beauty of UKIYO-E, featuring pieces from the Chiba City Museum of Art, will be held at Takashimaya Osaka from September 15-27, 2021. 

     

    Ukiyo-e, or woodblock prints, were exceptionally popular as a Japanese art style from the 17th to the 19th centuries. Now, a new exhibition coming to Osaka is highlighting the ‘Shin-hanga’ movement, which took place during the early 20th century and focused largely on the creation of pieces to sell to foreign markets. The man behind this movement was Shozaburo Watanabe, who commissioned artists to design prints blending traditional Japanese techniques with unique elements of Western paintings at the time, such as shadowing and different perspectives. 

     

    The exhibition will contain 120 works selected from the Chiba City Museum of Art’s Shin-hanga collection, ranging from early masterpieces such as Goyo Hashiguchi’s ‘Woman at her Bath,’ Ito Shinsui’s ‘Before the Mirror,’ as well as rich depictions of Japanese landscapes by Hasui Kawase and international landscapes by Hiroshi Yoshida. 

     

    Selection of Featured Works

     

    Twelve Months of Tokyo: Evening Glow at Yanaka – Hasui Kawase. 1921. 

     

    The Twelve Months in Tokyo series consists of twelve paintings based on sketches made by Kawase between December 1920 and October 1921. While twelve pieces were planned, only four circular pieces and one square piece were completed. Evening Glow at Yanaka depicts a five-story pagoda glowing faintly in the light of the setting sun. Kawase has stated that as he finished sketching the piece, he heard the sound of a bell, and for some reason, he had the uncanny feeling that he needed to straighten his collar. 

     

     

    Sailing Boats in the Morning: Inland Sea – Hiroshi Yoshida. 1926.

     

    Yoshida began work on the Sailing Ship trilogy in 1921 under Shozaburo Watanabe, but all of his woodblocks and most of his works were lost in the Great Kanto Earthquake. Five years later, Yoshida decided to tackle the project again, this time deciding on six pieces. In contrast to the originals under Watanabe, these pieces tackled more nuanced periods of time and give a stronger sense of tranquility. Pay attention to the slight variations in color and light. 

     

    Before the Mirror. Ito Shinsui. 1916. 

    This is the first Shin-hanga work by Ito Shinsui. The piece only uses three colors: red, black, and white, and utilizes serrated carving to give the impression of shadows. Using layers of rare high-quality red paint, this work has been deemed a masterpiece by fans of the movement, conveying Shinsui’s subtlety when depicting the feminine figure. 

     

    Fashions of the Modern World: Tipsy – Kiyoshi Kobayakawa. 1930.

    This portrait of a modern lady is one of six in the Fashions of the Modern World series by Kobayakawa, and is regarded by many as the best in the bunch. Produced between 1930 and 1931, the artist portrayed the unique personalities of women, rather than sticking to tradition. The woman in this portrait isn’t demure or quiet, but instead shows off her short hair, a cigarette, rings, and a cocktail in her hand, showing a different side to the Japanese women of the period. 

     

    Combing the Hair. Goyo Hashiguchi. 1920. 

    With her overflowing black hair and elegant appearance, the subject of Combing the Hair makes it clear why this is Hashiguchi’s most representative work. The woman’s name is Tomi Kodaira, and she modeled for many of the artist’s works, being discovered by him as she was modeling at a nearby art school. The pose is said to be inspired by Rossetti’s Lady Lilith, but her expression is unique to Hashiguchi and the typical style of ukiyo-e. 

  • Noseden Artline Festival 2021 Bringing Light, Sound, and Food to the Kawanishi Area

    21.September.2021 | FASHION / SPOT

    A celebration of light, sound, and food, the biennial Noseden Artline 2021 Festival will take place from October 30 until November 23, 2021. Set in one city and three towns along the Nose Electric Railway, the regional art event began in 2013 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the rail line, and brings local artists and residents together. 

     

    The festival will be in Kawanishi and Inagawa in Hyogo Prefecture, as well as in Toyono and Nose in Osaka Prefecture, with Mt. Myoken marking the center point. Each part of the event will connect the history, industry, and tradition of the area with new and engaging creations. 

     

    The theme of the 2021 Noseden Artline Festival is ‘Enlarged Mentality.’ By taking things that are subjective, like an artist’s thoughts and senses, and applying them to the objective world that can be shared, it creates a one-of-a-kind way to connect fully with others. The event will feature local cuisine and music, as well as art focused on light, inspired by the North Star. After a year of solitude due to the pandemic, the festival hopes to remind people to cultivate, nourish, and preserve local relationships. 

     

    Art can make life more enjoyable, so why not come and see what the area has to offer?
