02.June.2020 | FOOD

There, they are serving cat-shaped pastries and desserts including Kyoto-exclusive products from their Neko Neko Bread brand and Neko Neko Cheesecake shop.
Kyoto Neko Neko Danish Bread: ¥1,200 (Before Tax)
This butter-loaded Danish pastry is folded into a braid shape and baked which keeps the pastry moist. It’s topped with a sprinkling of sugar, leaving it glistening. It’s recommended that you first try the pastry as it is—soft and moist. You can then try lighting toasting it which gives it a crispy texture and brings out the delicious aroma of the butter.
Products are packaged in a cute box making them a great gift idea.
Kyoto Neko Neko Cheesecake (On sale from mid-June 2020)
This cheesecake is made with Brie de Meaux cheese and is laced with black cocoa. The luxurious cheese combined with black soy beans and brown sugar syrup jelly makes for a marriage between Japanese and Western flavours. You get an extra layer of deliciousness too with a dusting of soy flour.
Kyoto Neko Neko Bread (Plain): ¥550 (Before Tax)
This Kyoto version of the Neko Neko Bread is still made without water, but rather than using only milk, Kyoto Neko Neko has added soy milk made using soy beans from a tofu shop in Kyoto, lending a smooth and rich flavour to the bread. And instead of mascarpone cheese, Kyoto Neko Neko uses soybean cream, and instead of dairy butter a soy cream butter.
Kyoto Neko Neko Bread (Houjicha): ¥680 (Before Tax)

Buy These Face Masks and Help Save Japan’s Cats in the Process
08.May.2020 | FASHION
Neco Republic launched online pre-orders of its new face masks, called “SAVE THE CAT MASK,” via its website on May 6, 2020. Neco Republic is a company who pours efforts into helping save cats in Japan; they manage various businesses including the cat cafe Neco Republic which takes in rescue cats, NECOREPA/ which sells a variety of products and items with all proceeds going towards their efforts to taking in stray cats, Neco Ichi Neco Za which is a rescue cat event held in Japan, and more.
The “SAVE THE CAT MASK” series was launched for cat lovers and as a way to help cats in the process. The previous batch of these masks sold out in just two days.
High quality materials and skilful sewing, all made in Japan
SAVE THE CAT MASK – ¥1,980 for one / ¥9,900 for five
The masks are made from high quality natural cotton with all manufacturing carried out in Japan. They are sewed using a Japanese sewing method known as ayaori which ensures elasticity and makes it harder for the masks to wrinkle. The masks can also be washed repeatedly. Maintaining hygiene is of utmost important when it comes to face masks, and so these face masks are made so you can hand wash them lightly with detergent as well as put them in a net before putting them in the washing machine.
The masks are all sewn in Gifu Prefecture which is where Neco Republic is based.
Cute designs inspired by cats
There are five design variations of the masks each inspired by a different cat breed including calico, Russian Blue, tuxedo, white, and black. They are also shaped subtly like a cat which most likely won’t be noticed by other people meaning you can express you love of cats secretly.
Save cats during the process
The masks aren’t only for us humansーthey benefit our cats too. All proceeds from the masks will go towards Neco Republic’s rescue cat cafe as well as be used for the company’s efforts for helping rescue cats.

Who are Subikiawa?
Subikiawa is a tableware store known to all in Kyoto that’s open around three days a month. “Tabletop Circus” is the theme of their hand drawn tableware series which is mainly centred around glassware. Subikiawa first began their collaboration series with Felissimo back in 2016. Since then, they have teamed up to make yukata, jinbei, pyjamas, clothes, and moreーall with Subikiawa’s cute illustrative designs.
The new yukata and jinbei they have developed for this summer features a colourful underwater theme with various fishes, pebbles, and water plants.

Beautiful Jellyfish Umbrellas Designed by Kamo Aquarium Will Keep You Dry
26.April.2020 | FASHION
YOU+MORE!, a brand of humorous merchandise and accessories developed by Felissimo, has teamed up with the famous Kamo Aquarium to release a series of jellyfish umbrellas.
The intricate umbrella designs were developed in cooperation with the staff at Kamo Aquarium’s Jellyfish Dream House. Three different kinds of jellyfish were used as inspiration for the umbrellas.
Moon Jelly Umbrella
YOU+MORE! Moon Jelly Umbrella – ¥1,600
Moon jellyfish are perhaps one of the most popular kinds of jellyfish out there. What may be the most striking part of this umbrella is the colour gradation which gives it a transparent effect. The edges of the umbrella are also curved, giving it a delicate silhouette and making it look even more like the real things.
The umbrella’s frames are built strong, and the material of the umbrella itself is a white glass fibre which serves not only to mimic the colour of a moon jelly, but so that you can still see through it too. (As a side note, all three of the umbrella designs are made from glass fibre.)
Northern Sea Nettle Umbrella
YOU+MORE! Northern Sea Nettle Umbrella – ¥1,600
Like the northern sea nettle itself, this umbrella features a dome shape and incorporates a stripe design. A northern sea nettle has 16 stripes, and so that many were added to the umbrella. The jellyfish staff at the aquarium praised this one as the most realistic.
YOU+MORE! Spotted Jelly Umbrella – ¥1,600
Like the northern sea nettle, the spotted jelly too as a cute dome-shaped body. If someone who has never seen one of these jellyfish umbrellas before sees this design, they’ll think of it as just having cute spotted design. However, a jellyfish enthusiast is sure to get excited as the sight of this one with its details like its orange colour and the dots around the edges.
Kamo Aquarium will begin selling limited edition versions from the end of June this year which come with an ephyra charmーthat’s the name for a baby jellyfish. The aquarium is currently closed until May 6 due to the coronavirus. The latest updates can be found on their official website.

Tadanori Yokoo Releases Art Book Collection of His Late Beloved Cat Tama
04.April.2020 | FASHION
Since his cat Tama passed away in 2014, Japanese graphic designer and illustrator Tadanori Yokoo has drawn 91 pieces of his beloved feline companion. Those pieces have been compiled into a new art book entitled Tama, Kaetteoide (“Come Home, Tama”).
Tama was a famous cat amongst fans of Tadanori Yokoo, who would feature him on his Twitter page and blog from time to time. Yokoo’s love for Tama was also well-known amongst his followers. Tama was a stray cat and appeared in Yokoo’s garden. In the 15 years Yokoo took care of him, Tama’s affection warmed the hearts of both the artist and his family of fans.
The 91 pieces that Yokoo created of Tama since his passing were originally never going to be seen by anyone. But this year, on the seventh anniversary of Tama’s death, Yokoo has decided to publish them.
Tama, Kaetteoide – ¥2,200 (Before Tax)
The collection features not only art pieces, but diary and written entries too that Yokoo occasionally wrote about Tama. Yokoo’s Twitter page become a diary for the artist, where he expressed his sadness and loneliness after losing his cat, which has received much attention with his followers. The book includes the diary entries from when Tama was alive to his death and up to 2018.
When Yokoo met with Yoko Ono, he said of his work, “I didn’t draw this as artーI drew it as a love letter to my cat,” to which she responded, “And that’s exactly why it’s art.” I too believe that if a piece of art moves a person’s heart, then that in itself makes it art. Featured in this book are many of Yokoo’s diary and written entries about his beloved Tama. But it also begs the question to people what is love, what is life, and what is death? It’s a treasured illustrated collection for people, and above all one you can’t help adoring. I believe this book will add something to the lives of every art fan, of every cat lover, and every person who kindly buys themselves a copy.”
An exhibition showcasing all of the illustrations in the book is set to take place at Nishimura Gallery in the near future. The exhibition has been postponed as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, but you can check the gallery’s official website for when the event will next be rescheduled.

Capy Neko Cafe: Japan’s First Cat and Capybara Cafe Opens in Tokyo
24.January.2020 | FOOD
Capy Neko Cafe is the newest animal cafe to hit Tokyo. Located in the neighbourhood of Kichijoji, right by the station, customers are able to interact with both cats and capybara at the same time.
Japan is famous for its host of animal cafes, from the ubiquitous cat cafes to more unique ones like the owl cafe. But Capy Neko Cafe stands out from the rest as being the first cafe in Japan to combine cats and capybara.
You might wonder whether it’s actually safe to pet a capybara. They may be the largest rodent in the world, but they in fact loved to be pet by people. They are gentle creatures that get on with and can live alongside cats. At the cafe, you can take photos of the capybara who are sure to be chilling on the sofas as well as feed them. The comfy environment also means that they’ll feel like your very own pet capybara at home.
Tawashi is a sensitive, affectionate, and gentle guy. He loves snacks, and he’s sure to flop down if you start petting him on the butt. Part of his daily routine is having an afternoon nap on the sofa together with the cats.
The vice store manager of Capy Neko Cafe. He adores humans. He’s the kind of guy who’ll probably jump up onto you if you cover your lap with a blanket and sit on the sofa.
Another member with a soft spot for humans, Emma is reserved kitty who lets everybody eat their food first. She’s a needy and spoiled girlーif she’s on your lap, you’re not getting up. She’s siblings with Dan.
Cream is everybody’s idol. He’s unapologetically spoiled and a handsome guy with perfectly round black pupils.
This list is just a small taste of the many cute residents to meet at Capy Neko Cafe. The cafe is also active in finding families for their rescued cats. The number of people who want to own a cat in Japan are looking to rescues now instead of pet shops. At Capy Neko Cafe, you get the best of both worlds: you can meet and interact with a cat and see if they’re a good match for you.
If you’re interested in visiting Capy Neko Cafe, keep in mind that priority goes to those who have booked in advance. This can be done via their official website, so book first and look forward to kicking back and enjoying a cup of tea, coffee or soft drink before interacting with the cats and capybara!
