  • Japan’s Construction Industry is About to Become Fun With Kajikawa Construction x ASOBISYSTEM’s 3K Project

    06.August.2020 | FASHION

    Kajikawa Corportation and ASOBISYSTEM CO., LTD are looking to revamp the perceived image of the construction industry in Japan with the launch of the 3K Project. The three “K’s” of the project are the Japanese words Kawaii (cute), Kirei (clean), and Kirakira (shiny).

    Construction work is generally perceived by a different set of three K’s: Kitsui (severe), Kitanai (dirty), and Kiken (dangerous), but the number of young people, both men and women, working in the industry in Japan is on the rise, resulting in the work environment changing too. That’s where Kajikawa Corporation and ASOBISYSTEM’s 3K Project comes in, which aims to re-brand the industry.


    That begins with the unveiling of the 3K Project’s official mascots: Corny, Gungun & Nonnon, Scoppy, and Metty, a band of construction tools and equipment, each of which has their own unique traits and personalities and who will be used in promotional material about the 3K Project.

    A set of GIF stickers of these characters has been released on GIPHY aimed at encouraging people who are challenging themselves to new things during increased time at home as a result of the pandemic.

    The stickers can be found on Instagram stories by typing the following terms in Japanese: 3Kプロジェクト (3K Project), 3Kスタンプ (3K Stamp), カワイイ (Kawaii), キラキラ (Kirakira), キレイ (Kirei), or “Kawaii” in English.


    Everyone around the world has had to adapt to a new lifestyle of more time staying indoors, and so we haven’t been able to meet with friends and family in person as much. These GIFs are a cute way to show them that you’re working on yourself.


    Stay tuned for more updates about 3K Project as it works towards changing the face of Japan’s construction industry.

    If you order any drink from this café menu, you will be presented with an original badge that is chosen at random. During the commemoration period, the café space will be decorated with special illustrations and there will be special videos running for visitors to enjoy. 

  • The Leo Lionni cafe located at Sunday Brunch, MARRONNIER GATE GINZA 1 is remaining open for a longer period due to popular demand. The limited-time cafe will now be open until September 29. This cafe is themed around the world of Leo Lionni; a famous children’s picture book author whose illustrated stories include Swimmy and Frederick. Some of his works have even featured in school textbooks. After much anticipation, the cafe has released a brand new menu.

    The renewed menu includes three new items which are based on Frederick; the story which has been praised as Lionni’s best and most popular by both children and adults. A new Frederick-themed meal, cake and drink will be made available from July 20. When you order the Frederick-themed meal, the world of Frederick will unfold before you as if it has been cut straight out of the book and served up on a plate. There is no doubt that you will find these dishes so cute that you will not want to eat them.

    Frederick’s Sunny Soup and Rice: ¥1,480

    This is a corn, pumpkin and minced chicken dish served with a cold soup and brown rice. This depicts the image of Frederick collecting the sun as he does in the story. The rice is served hot.

    “I know it” Cheesecake: ¥1,250 (price with drink set)

    This is a baked cheesecake made using rhubarb and summer berries sourced from Hotaru Noen Tatsuno Farm, Nagano. This delicious cheesecake depicts the scene right at the end of the story where the mice praise Frederick saying: “but Frederick! You are a poet,” to which Frederick replies: “I know it”.

    Frederick Cheese Tea: ¥900 

    This is a pineapple iced tea with cream cheese and a Frederick biscuit perched on the top. The pineapple flavour is sweet yet slightly sour. This is bound to leave you feeling refreshed, making it the perfect summer drink. 


    From July 13 to September 29, 2019, there will be a special discount campaign running at the Minna no Leo Lionni Ten; an exhibition dedicated to Lio Lionni which is currently running at the Seiji Togo Memorial Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Museum of Art. Please consider stopping by.

One day, an 800-year-old fox girl by the name of Senko appears to him to take care of him. Senko’s food has a cosy homemade feel to it that serves to heal the heart and soul of her salary man. The food at Danmaya Suisan serves to bring this idea to life.

    Ordering the Senko-san Set will get you all the food Senko-san serves in the anime series including meat and potatoes, sashimi and inarisushi. You’ll also receive a free original lunch mat and rock glass designed by Senko-san. These items are available in limited supply.

    For drinks, there are two alcoholic and two nonalcoholic, both inspired by Senko-san and Shiro.

    If you decide to order a drink you’ll receive one of four possible coasters.

  • Pompompurin cafe Harajuku, Umeda and Yokohama will be collaborating with much-loved manga and anime character Bonobono. The collaboration will see a new menu make its way to the three Pompompurin cafes from July 11 to September 1, 2019. 


    The theme of the collaboration is Bonobono and Pompompurin on a fun trip to the beach. The collaboration menu includes four meals that are both cute and delicious enough to fully satisfy both Bonobono and Pompompurin fans. 

    Two friends swimming in white curry: ¥1,290 (before tax) 

    Order the white curry dish and you will see the two pals are wearing matching mushrooms as hats. Pompompurin has come prepared to swim in the curry with a lifering made from a crispy mochi wafer (monaka). The two friends seem to be having lots of fun on their beach trip. The dish is decorated with large and colourful vegetables, shellfish-shaped ham and starfish-shaped bell pepper. This healthy dish is both filling and beautiful.  

    Pompompurin English Muffin and Bonobono Doria (Doria: rice casserole dish with a creamy white sauce) ¥1,390 (before tax )

    In the English muffin and doria meal, a slice of English muffin is topped with vegetables and a burger. Pompompurin’s face is drawn on a slice of cheese that is placed on top. The meat doria is a casserole topped with a creamy white sauce, decorated with Bononono’s face. Both the pals are seen expressing their friendship by wearing matching berets. This comes as a set with a salad topped with shellfish-shaped ham and chips. What a filling meal. 

    Pompompurin Pancake Featuring Bonobono : ¥1,090 (before tax)

    The pancake dessert plate features a Pompompurin pancake alongside a Bonobono sherbet that is ramune flavoured. The sherbert might be your first time tasting the unique Japanese flavour of ramune. Ramune is a Japanese soft drink that is blue in flavour and perfect for the summer. Make sure to leave enough room for dessert!
