The Shijō Kawaramachi and Ginkaku-ji branches of the sweet shop Sawawa in Kyoto are collaborating with the rare Sanrio character Shinagawa Monjiro. From December 9th to March 31st next year the shop will have 7 collaborative takeout items on its menu and 2 in-store items as well as a range of character merchandise.
The elusive Shinagawa Monjiro is a samurai who appears on the Twitter page of another Sanrio character, Cinnamon. Monjiro is the spitting image of Cinnamon but he wears a hakama (a divided skirt and traditional type of Japanese clothing) and he wears his hair in a “chonmage” or topknot style. Nobody knows his true identity. But in line with Cinnamoroll’s 15th anniversary, Monjiro is set to drop by two Kyoto-based branches of Sawawa.
The familiar signboard of Sawawa will read “Shinagawa Monjiro×Sawawa” in Japanese and there will be a big cut-out of Monjiro inside the shop.
Not only can you go and eat a tasty food menu themed around Shinagawa Monjiro, you can also get your hands on 8 different available key rings too. They are also selling manjuu with Shinagawa Monjiro branded onto it and matcha warabi mochi (matcha bracken-starch dumplings).
Don’t miss out on this rare collaboration with one of Sanrio’s most elusive characters.
