The two new menu items fans can hope to enjoy based on Weezing and Morpeko. Also, due to popular demand, the serving period for the first collaborative menu which featured Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble has been extended to March 19, 2020.

Weezing’s Chemical Change Gas Pancakes – ¥1,628

Try pouring the accompanying blueberry sauce over Weezing’s cotton candy gas clouds and you might just see an actual chemical change yourself!

 

Ingredients: Pancakes, Matcha Whipped Cream, White Chocolate Sauce, Blueberry Sauce

 

Morpeko’s Hungry W Sauce Omurice – ¥1,628

Just like Morpeko can change between two forms via its Hunger Switch ability, this omurice too is served with two different flavoured sauces.

 

Ingredients: Omurice, Demi Glace Sauce, Tomato Cream Sauce

 

If you’ve yet to visit the Pokémon Cafe in Japan be sure to put it on your list of things-to-do, and expect to enjoy a whole range of Pokémon-themed treats!

  • teamLab to Open Art-Filled Botanical Garden in Osaka This Summer

    21.May.2022 | FASHION / SPOT

    Art collective teamLab will open a permanent nighttime exhibition, ‘teamLab Botanical Garden Osaka,’ at Nagai Botanical Garden in Osaka in the summer of 2022.

     

    The Nagai Botanical Garden, which originally opened in 1974, reopened on April 1, 2022, after tree thinning, tree rearrangement and replanting to accommodate new root growth, and soil improvement to create an environment where plants can thrive and grow in the far future. The garden covers over 240,000 square meters and is home to 1,200 species of plants, flowers, and trees.

    This summer, teamLab will transform the garden into an art space where the past, present, and future intersect, blending with nature’s changing seasons and the presence of guests.

    TeamLab’s environmentally friendly art project, ‘Digitized Nature,’ aims to show “nature itself becoming art in its natural state” by using only digital technology. Nothing in the gardens needs to be destroyed to create art.

    At teamLab Botanical Garden Osaka, the daytime botanical garden will become an art space at night. The space will be transformed by actual wind and rain, as well as by the behavior of the birds and the actions of visitors to the site. 

    Come enjoy an illuminated garden filled with art on a warm night this summer!

  • Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Collaborates with 153-year-old Kimuraya Bakery for LOCAL POWER JAPAN Project

    09.May.2022 | FOOD / MUSIC / SPOT

    Last month, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu performed on the Gobi Stage at Coachella, one of the largest music festivals in the United States. Her Weekend 1 performance was streamed live worldwide and trended on Twitter in both the U.S. and Japan. After an accident during the second weekend left the singer alone on stage, many wondered if she could pull of a dazzling performance. Kyary’s joy and excitement completely transfixed the massive crowd, and the artist has drawn praise from around the world for her talent and passion.

     

    Kyary has returned to Japan to continue her ‘Kyary Pamyu Pamyu 10th ANNIVERSARY JAPAN TOUR 2022 CANDY WAVE,’ seeing the singer performing 30 shows across Japan. On May 7, she’ll perform at LINE CUBE SHIBUYA in Tokyo.

     

    In conjunction with the nationwide tour, the LOCAL POWER JAPAN Project was launched to energize Japan through the appeal of regional towns and cities and has been attracting major attention. To celebrate the Tokyo leg of the tour, a new Tokyo collab has been announced!

     

    Kyary is teaming up with Kimuraya Sohonten, a bakery that has been in business for over 150 years. The brand is known for inventing the anpan sweet bun in 1874. Given how much this simple food has influenced Japanese culture, it seems appropriate to team up with Kyary–the singer has brought Japanese influence around the world and continues to inspire fans with her creativity and sweetness. 

    For the collaboration, fans will be able to purchase the aptly-named ‘Ninjari Anpan,’ based on Kyary’s hit song Ninjari Bang Bang released in 2013. The limited-edition set includes five different flavors of anpan and shows Kyary in her ninja attire on the box. Concertgoers can purchase these sweets at the show on May 7, and they will also be available at select Kimuraya stores and online.

     

    A collaborative T-shirt is also on sale featuring the new logo and the singer’s 10th-anniversary logo. The shirt is available on the LOCAL POWER JAPAN Project website for two weeks only. Support Japanese businesses and pick one up while you can!
