Taiko-en is an enormous site spanning 250,000 square feet and is home to a breathtaking garden, restaurant, and more. This year, the site is giving host to a special illumination event for autumn this year which began on Saturday.
Since July 2019, Taiko-en has been lighting up its garden with illuminations for people to enjoy the beautiful garden in the evening, bringing together nature with the history of the site.
The illuminations begin with projection mapping at the entrance of the garden which rolls out an autumn colour carpet. As visitors walk along the projected path, the lights and colours dance beneath their feet.
Further in they will come to the “Night Museum” area where they will find stone statues collected by Denzaburō Fujita lit up, as well as paper lanterns, and more, offering a magical atmosphere different from that during the daytime. There’s also a path home to moso bamboo as well as acrylic bamboo with LED lights in it which lead visitors into a mystical world of dazzling radiance. In the main area, there’s a lake with a sea of clouds above it, and the trees of the garden coloured bright red.
The restaurant and banquet area are open for business, so after enjoying a gourmet meal, visitors are encouraged to go and see the light show.

Running: From September 26, 2020 everyday from 19:00

Pokémon Shirts Releases Short Documentary On YouTube
Pokémon Shirts was launched back in February 2019 by American custom shirt brand Original Stitch—which offers over one billion design customisations—and the Pokémon franchise. Pokémon Shirts ships worldwide including Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
A special video was released on the official Pokémon YouTube channel which showcases the laborious efforts takes to make Pokémon Shirts, from the manufacturing, design, and print process until they are in the hands of the customers.
Pokémon Shirts launched a campaign on September 25 where the first 2,000 customers to buy a shirt from their website will receive a free acrylic key ring. The key rings feature designs taken from the shirt series.
Since the shirts are made-to-order, the company does their best to not waste any materials, but some extra is going to be inevitably leftover. Rather than disposing of this excess fabric, upcycling brand NEWSED took it to create the key rings.
More of these key rings are in the works, and designs featuring the original 151 Pokémon will be released at sometime in the future. Stay up to date via their official website.
Shipping: Japan, US, UK, Spain, Germany, Italy, France, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Phillippines, India, Indonesia

Solo Sauna Tune: Tokyo’s New Privacy Guaranteed Finnish-Style Sauna
30.September.2020 | SPOT
Solo Sauna Tune is a new sauna that offers “total privacy” which is set to open its first branch inside UNPLAN Kagurazaka in Tokyo this November.
Most sauna facilities in Japan cater to groups, but at Solo Sauna Tune, all guests are given their own space where they can undress, bathe, and relax in their own private room. This is especially desirable during the current pandemic where social distancing is paramount, and is a great opportunity for people not wanting to travel in groups.
The solo saunas are heated using sauna stoves imported from Finland. Adding water to the sauna stones lets guests control the amount of steam in the room so they can adjust as they like. There is also a Japanese white birch aroma provided to the löyly (Finnish for ‘steam’).
Guests can also cool off in cold water. The Chiller provides water at 15℃. There are also overhead showers for cooling down, and the showerheads can be adjusted to make the water come out like mist.
The relaxation area is coloured in a stylish black where guests can kick back for a while.
After using the sauna, guests can visit the powder room where there are a varieties of free amenities. There’s also a café which serves craft beers, food, and other treats.
Solo Sauna Tune

Special Pokémon Music Video ‘GOTCHA!’ Uses BUMP OF CHICKEN’s Song ‘Acacia’
BUMP OF CHICKEN’s new song Acacia was used for a special new Pokémon music video entitled GOTCHA! which was posted onto the official Pokémon YouTube page along with captioned lyrics in 9 languages.
The music video’s high quality animation was carried out by Bones (My Hero Academia; Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood). It was directed by Rie Matsumoto (Blood Blockade Battlefront) with character designs by Yuki Hayashi (My Hero Academia: Two Heroes).
“I can’t speak English,” explains director Rie Matsumoto. “For me to have a full conversation in English, my native friend always goes to a lot of trouble for me. It’s a situation I’m sorry for. I first met them on a flight, and began speaking to them, but because of the issue I just mentioned, it makes me feel awkward thinking back to it. But they smiled when they saw the Pikachu I had drawn on my phone. Both Pokémon and that trip came together to give me fond memories.”
She continues: “I surmise that the Pokémon series has a long journey to go yet, so I hope this music video serves as a trip down memory lane for people—a stopover of past seasons in the series. I have overwhelming gratitude for the four members of BUMP OF CHICKEN who always put out wonderful music. I hope seeing the acacia flower is now something people will enjoy that they may not have thought to before. Thank you all.”
Check out the full video below.
Pokémon Special Music Video “GOTCHA!”
BUMP OF CHICKEN will release their new physical single Acacia/Gravity on November 4, 2020. In the meantime, fans can now download Acacia from today (September 30).
The single will be released in two versions, both containing both songs. The “Acacia” edition’s CD cover features a snippet taken from the end of the Pokémon music video and comes with a rubber key ring and sticker.
The “Gravity” edition has a beautiful floral design and comes with a DVD featuring 5 tracks taken from BUMP OF CHICKEN’s performance at Zepp Osaka Bayside on their 2019 “aurora ark” tour. The cover art was once again created by designer VERDY and cameraman Yoshiharu Ōta.

YUEN BETTEI DAITA: Tokyo’s New Onsen Ryokan Opening in Shimokitazawa
26.September.2020 | SPOT
UDS HOTELS is set to open YUEN BETTEI DAITA, a new onsen ryokan (hot spring Japanese inn), in Shimokitazawa, Tokyo, on September 28, 2020. The hotel is just a 1-minute walk from Setagaya-Daita Station and an 8-minute walk from Shimokitazawa Station.
YUEN BETTEI DAITA sits in a quiet location surrounded by old, historical Japanese houses and is basked in nature. It houses 300 guest rooms and has open-air baths, a spa, and offers traditional Japanese food the tea ceremony.
The inn is equipped with considerate facilities and has a relaxed atmosphere. It caters to modern day needs while still promising a traditional Japanese inn experience. And it doesn’t have to be just used as a hotel either – guests can just spend the day there in the hot springs if they like, allowing locals to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city and their busy Tokyo lives.
YUEN BETTEI DAITA bases itself on the appearance of residences seen back in Tokyo back in the day. The hotel has taken in furniture and materials that were inherited in a thatched-roof residence in Setagaya which has over a 100 year history, which gives a nod to the history and culture of traditional Japanese architecture, while still incorporating more modern techniques in the wooden roofing and other areas. All of this combines to create a sophisticated Japanese culture-imbued space.
There are 35 guest rooms in total, each coming in one of seven types ranging from 19㎡-32㎡. The rooms open up into a tatami and seating area. Guests are provided with yukata and leather-soled geta shoes, and are treated to Japanese tea and confections from local shops.。
Open-air onsen baths (1st Floor)
The large open-air baths receive water from Odakyu Hotel de Yama’s own water source in Hakone. Guests can enjoy looking at a traditional Japanese garden while they bathe and listen to the sound of the water from Mount Fuji. The female baths also have scented mist saunas while the male baths have dry saunas.
Cooking & Tea Ceremony (1st Floor)
Enjoy seasonal vegetables harvested from the local farms in Setagaya as well as Japanese sake and wine chosen to pair perfectly with the dishes.
Guests can also experience the Japanese ceremony with local tea. Daita was once rich with tea farms, and so guests can look forward to enjoying delicious and authentic tea.
If guests want to relax the hotel’s SOJYU spa offers full body massage, original essential oil treatments, and much more. The spa will also be open to non-guests from spring next year.
YUEN BETTEI DAITA
Grand Opening: September 28, 2020
*Baths and eating facilities are open to non-guests from October 12, 2020
Address: 2-31-26 Daita, Setagaya-ku, Tokyo
Access: 1-minute on foot from Setagaya-Daita Station / 8-minute on foot from Shimokitazawa Station

Review: Miffy Café at Tokyo Solamachi®
In commemoration of Miffy’s 65th anniversary, the new Miffy Café opened on the first floor of Tokyo Solamachi on September 11, 2020 and will remain open for a limited time. The café is also collaborating with Japanese illustrator Shogo Sekine.
We visited the café to check out the themed menu, merchandise, and other fun things on show to see.
Stepping into the café is like stepping into a picture book world. It’s really colourful in there. My mother read Miffy to me when I was a child, so I was hit with a real sense of nostalgia when I entered the café. No matter your age, you’re sure to enjoy your time there – that’s the kind of fun atmosphere they have created.
Terrine-Style Open Miffy Sandwich | ¥1,499
I ordered the terrine-style open Miffy sandwich and Miffy orange float from the themed menu.
The open sandwich arrives in the shape of Miffy, so it almost seems a waste to eat, but it was really cute and delicious. Simply the best. It’s filled with potato salad, an avocado sauce, and salmon.
Miffy Orange Float | ¥899
The ice cream that tops the orange float is made to look like Miffy too!
Snapping a photo while drinking the float is pretty Instagrammable, so it’s a must when visiting.
All of the items on the menu have Miffy somewhere on them, meaning anything you order is guaranteed to be kawaii. They have takeout too, which is great if you don’t have much time to hang around or just don’t want to dine inside.
Speaking of which, each table in the café is separated with an acrylic board to protect customers during the pandemic, and all of them have super cute designs. Another photo opportunity for sure!
The café sells original merchandise too. The fashion items and illustrations with English on them were designed by popular Japanese illustrator Shogo Sekine. There’s a whole range of different goodies, from plush toys to fashion and more.
Don’t you feel happy just looking at all these colours? You’ll find yourself spoilt for choice on what to buy.
The Miffy Café is open until October 18. You can book a table too, so if you’re in Japan during this time, be sure to visit the café website below.
