Universal Studios Japan to Release Snoopy, Elmo and Other Cute Character Face Masks
In an effort to ensure the safety and protect the health of guests and staff, Universal Studios Japan (USJ) introduced strict measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 on June 8, 2020, such as limiting the number of people who could enter the park each day and enforcing thorough cleaning routines. This enabled the park to reopen after its temporary closure. It has since been able to deliver its scope of fun and excitement to guests, albeit in a more structured way.
USJ wants to make wearing masks more fun too, and so it is releasing a range of character-inspired face masks, such as Snoopy, Elmo and the Cookie Monster, on August 7. Part of the money made from sales of these masks will be donated to the USJ Wonder Kids Program which helps support children in need.
Universal Studios Japan original design masks

Support Japan’s Cherry Farmers During Lockdown by Eating Q-pot CAFE.’s Cherry Parfait
02.July.2020 | FOOD
Q-pot. and Q-pot CAFE. introduced a special cherry parfait to its menu on June 27 to help support cherry farmers whose work has been affected by COVID-19.
Due to less people travelling and sightseeing around Japan as a result of the lockdown and self-isolation practices, orders for cherries are being cancelled, and many festivals across Japan too are being cancelled, all of which is having a huge affect on the country’s cherry industry.
The current season is the best time to enjoy Japan’s juicy cherries, and so Q-pot CAFE. has teamed up with a cherry farm in Yamagata, a prefecture famous for its cherries.
Cherry Cherry Parfait (w/Drink): ¥1,850 (Tax Included)
The “Cherry Cherry Parfait” is topped with snow-white whipped cream, crunchy meringue, and cherries for a gorgeous contrast of red and white.
The cherries used are considered a high-grade type called “satonishiki” which has been dubbed the “King of Cherries.” They sit gracefully atop their kingdom of sweet ingredients including salt milk ice cream, chocolate, cherry jam, sponge cake, and panna cotta.
The cherry farmers are taking all the necessary safety precautions against COVID-19 while they continue to delivery delicious cherries to the people of Japan.

Pokémon Cosmetic Series: New Face Masks Keep Pokémon Trainer’s Skin Moisturised
Monosense is set to release the third collection of face masks in the popular Pokémon Cosmetic Series on June 19, 2020.
The Pokemon cosmetic series has been a huge success in Japan since it launched, spanning face masks, hand cream, lip cream, lip gloss, point packs, mirrors, and body gel. The face masks however have proven the most popular, having sold over 600,000 of them. Now, Pokémon Trainers can look forward to the third collection in an all new 2020 version.
Until now, the face masks themselves have had an entire print of a single Pokémon face on them. This time, however, they have a new design with many of that Pokémon on them, along with colours that remind one of that Pokémon.
Skin can get pretty dry when summer rolls around, so these made-in-Japan face masks will keep Trainers’ skin moisturised thanks to the collagen, hyaluronic acid, and shea butter in them.
There are four Pokémon to choose from: Pikachu, Eevee, Psyduck, and Mew. Who will you choose?
