  • Tokyo Daijingu Shrine in Iidabashi Offering Rilakkuma Themed Ema Plaques

    30.November.2021 | FASHION / SPOT

    The popular character Rilakkuma was recently appointed as the tourism ambassador for Chiyoda City in Tokyo. To commemorate this lofty position, Tokyo Daijingu Shrine will begin offering Ema decorated with Rilakkuma starting December 1, 2021. Ema are small wooden plaques found at shrines, and visitors can write their wishes or prayers on them before hanging them up for the Gods to receive them. 

     

    Tokyo Daijingu was built in the early Meiji period so that residents of Tokyo could worship the many deities enshrined at the Grand Shrine of Ise from afar. Originally built in Hibiya, the shrine was moved to Iidabashi in 1928 after the Kanto Earthquake. 

     

    Rilakkuma became the tourism ambassador for Chiyoda in August and aims to convey the many charms of the area to as many people as possible. These Ema feature an original Rilakkuma design along with the crest of Tokyo Daijingu.

The artist Pii remains a curious addition to the recent Japanese music scene, having never revealed her face and communicating her music through a self-animated character.

     

    This new track will be used as the ending theme for the November edition of the morning show ‘Mezamashi 8.’ 

     

    Popular artists like yama, Nakimushi, Kujira, Moka Sato, Riu Domura, Wanuka, and haruno have participated in the project.  Released in May, ‘Yowanehaki feet. Wanuka, asmi’ won the TikTok Song Ranking four times in a row and has over 100 million views on the app. In August, vocalist asmi appeared on THE FIRST TAKE.
