  • 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.

     

    Spotted Jelly

    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.

    The insoles are made with long and comfy boa fabric to create the fluffy underbelly of the dogs.

    The gauze handkerchiefs come in six designs: Pomeranian, White Shiba, French Bulldog, Red Shiba, Golden Retriever, and Corgi.

    The embroidered doggy designs are 3D textured, making you want to poke and stroke them all the time you’re holding them. The front part is made from gauze and the back from pile. One of each of the six designs will be released monthly over a period of six months.

    If you love shiba inu, or know someone that does, this is the perfect gift!

  • Heart-Meltingly Cute Olaf Confection to Arrive in 7-Eleven to Celebrate Frozen 2

    17.November.2019 | FOOD / MOVIE

    Tabemas is a Japanese confectionery series of small, traditional sweets designed to look like characters. To celebrate the release of Frozen 2 on November 22, the series is releasing an Olaf confection which will be sold at 7-Eleven convenience stores across Japan from the same day as the release of the film. 

    The series name “Tabemas” means “edible mascot” and as the name suggests, Olaf has completely transformed into a delicious traditional sweet from carrot nose to adorable feet. In sweet form, the 40mm-tall chubby Olaf is stood still, staring up at you with adorable round eyes overflowing with adoration.

     

     

    This is a traditional nerikiri confection made from bean paste and soft mochi to a surprising level of detail. Even the snowflake pattern has been recreated. As Frozen 2 is set in autumn, Olaf has been stuffed with the most appropriate autumn flavour: maple. This small and dainty confection is the perfect treat for people of all ages.

     

    These are in limited stock so hurry down to your nearest 7-Eleven from November 22 if you are interested.

  • Adorable Mini Penguin and Polar Bear Confections to Arrive in Family Mart

    08.November.2019 | FOOD

    Tabemas is a Japanese confectionery series of small, traditional sweets designed to look like characters. For the first time, Tabemas is collaborating with the popular fictional character series Sumikko Gurashi to release Shirokuma and Penguin? sweets. The new confections will be sold in the chilled desserts corner of Family Mart convenience stores across Japan from November 12, 2019.

     

    The lovable characters who have been transformed into delicious sweets are Shirokuma: the shy polar bear who tends to get cold easily; and Penguin?, who has no confidence in their identity as a penguin. 

    The series name “Tabemas” means “edible mascot” and as the name suggests, these are traditional nerikiri confections which are made from bean paste and soft mochi, creating an adorable plump appearance.  Shirokuma’s body is white with pink ears whereas Penguin? has a pea-green body with a white stomach and yellow feet and beak. Both confections are kneaded with the characters’ charm and stand joining their tiny hands, staring at you with their adorable round eyes. 

    Both confections are filled with the mild flavour of red bean paste. To match the colour schemes of the characters, the white Shirokuma is milk-flavoured and the pale green Penguin? is apple-flavoured. The flavours of these confections are just as irresisitble as their appearance. You’re bound to be taking lots of photos of them for your next social media post in no time!

     

    As these confections are in limited supply, make sure to buy them as soon as possible if you are interested.

  • Rilakkuma & Korilakkuma Confections by Tabemas Coming to Lawson Convenience Stores

    14.October.2019 | FOOD

    Character-inspired Japanese confectionery series Tabemas has revealed that its next products will be Halloween-themed Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma sweets. They will go on sale at Lawson convenience stores across Japan (excluding Lawson Store 100 branches) on October 15, 2019.

    These adorable confections are so cute it’s hard to choose where to even start eating them from! Both versions are wearing snug pumpkin hats.

    ‘Tabemas’ is an abbreviation of the Japanese words taberareru masukotto, meaning ‘mascots that you can eat.’ It is a Japanese confectionery series that combines well-known characters and Japanese sweets made from ingredients like red bean paste, sugar and rice flour. The sweets are also made with a dough called “nerikiri” which is used in making traditional Japanese wagashi sweets.

     

    To keep with the theme of autumn, Rilakkuma is pumpkin pudding flavoured (which is his favourite treat) and Korilakkuma is maple flavoured.

     

    Stop by the ubiquitous Lawson convenience store while in Japan and grab yourself one of these treats for Halloween.
