Hop Aboard The Exeggutor-Themed Plane in Japan
Japanese regional airline company Solaseed Air Inc. has partnered up with Pokémon, creating an Exeggutor-themed plane.
In October 2020, Exeggutor was labelled as Miyazaki prefecture’s favourite Pokémon. This selection is due to Miyazaki being commonly associated with its warm and sunny climate. Exeggutor also resembles Miyazaki’s famous Phoenix palm trees, making it the perfect Pokémon ambassador.

SHIRO’s Omotesando Cosmetic and Beauty Store Gets Museum-Like Makeover
The flagship store of cosmetic brand SHIRO, SHIRO Omotesando, received a makeover on Friday last week (December 18). The shop, which has moved to the building’s second floor, has increased in size by 30%, allowing for SHIRO to display its 70 or so skincare and cosmetic products like a museum.
The many ingredients used in SHIRO’s products are now on display—something which customers don’t normally get to see―such as extract of gagome kombu, tamanu, pot marigold, and more. The line-up is packed solely with high quality ingredients by trusted producers and is a chance for people to get to know about the products they are buying even more.
The Edible Display
A special display of edibles, which will change depending on the harvesting seasons, can be enjoyed including ginger, yuzu, aloe, and more.
Underneath the displayed ingredients are eight drawers which reveal the actual size of the ingredients before they are turned into products. It also reveals when they are produced, information about the producers, and so on.
The store has of course undergone a full revamp, with the walls layered with gravel and soil, further adding to the display of the raw materials and ingredients. The wall design incorporates a traditional Japanese architecture method which results in it looking like something straight out of nature.
Limited Edition Products
To celebrate the renovations at SHIRO Omotesando, the store will be selling a limited-edition SHIRO PERFUME as well as a selection of products available at only select stores like SHIRO LIFE and SHIRO HOME items.
SHIRO BEAUTY (B1F)
SHIRO BEAUTY is a salon on floor B1F that manages SHIRO Omotesando. It’s set to close on December 31 and will reopen in mid-February next year to bring in haircut, hair colouring, head spa, and other services as well as facials, body treatments, and more.
SHIRO PERFUME will be sold in limited quantities and is exclusive to SHIRO Omotesando.
SHIRO PERFUME – WISHING WELL | ¥10,500 (Before Tax)
SHIRO PERFUME – WISHING WELL Fragrance
A warm and cosy fragrance with fresh berry notes on top and bitter orange for accent.
