  • 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.

    Message from the Artists

    Hello. 

    For this event, we’ve created an everyday space, ‘home,’ in a very not-everyday space: ArtRink in Yokohama.

    Guests should come on an adventure that begins at the front door, then dance on ice through the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and more!

    You might discover something new among the familiar furnishings and snippets of daily life.

    We hope that once you leave ArtRink and return home, you’ll try to keep dancing from time to time.

    Just have fun. Dance with us!

    Whether you’re wearing skates, sneakers, or slippers…

    Just take a step and have the best possible time this winter.
