  • Brightburn Horror Film Japan Release Promoted With Supervillain March in Shibuya

    08.November.2019 | MOVIE / SPOT

    In May this year, US-based film production and distribution company The H Collective partnered with Japanese e-commerce company Rakuten to establish Rakuten H Collective Studio and the distribution company Rakuten Distribution. It has been announced that the first film they will release, together with Toho-Towa Distribution, will be Brightburn on November 15, 2019.

     

    Brightburn is an American supervillain horror film directed by David Yarovesky and produced by James Gunn and Kenneth Huang. The movie is an amalgamation of genres including horror, sci-fi, suspense and drama. The global hit song bad guy by Billie Eilish serves as the movie’s credit roll theme.

     

    The film tells the story of Tori Breyer (Elizabeth Banks) whose struggles with fertility are lifted and her dreams for motherhood come true when a mysterious baby boy appears to her. Things take a turn for the worse however as darkness begins to manifest itself in the child, Brandon Breyer (Jackson A. Dunn), and he begins to act out his deviant urges.

    In promotion of the film, an army of 48 people dressed as Brightburn marched through the streets on Shibuya on Wednesday. They called themselves BBK48, a pun on the Japanese idol group AKB48, with “BBK” standing for Brightburn Kyoufu no Kakusancha (“Fear Spreading Collective”). They began on Koen Dori Street and made their way to Shibuya’s famous Scramble Crossing, weaving in and out of the crowd who reacted in fear and surprise at the red-cloaked band of baddies. Many photos were taken by passersby and posted onto social media.

    They continued along Basketball Street (Center-gai Shopping Street), catching everyone off guard as they marched in unison.

  • New South Korean Cafe ‘Cafe de paris’ Opens in Laforet Harajuku

    30.October.2019 | FOOD

    In South Korea, which has been dubbed “a cafe battleground,” one particular cafe called Cafe de paris has stood out from the rest for their visually impacting fruity desserts. This immensely popular chain is now heading to Laforet Harajuku with a new branch opening on November 1.

    Cafe de paris first appeared in Japan back in February this year, with its eye-popping “Bon Bon” parfait series attraction a great deal of attention for its Instagram-worthy appearance. In just six months, it exceeded 100,000 customer visits. The cafe, however, was only open for a limited time. But that’s about to change, as Laforet Harajuku welcomes the country’s first permanent branch.

     

    The cafe interior takes on a light blue and white colour scheme, with table and counter seats lining the room and gorgeous chandeliers adorned overhead.

    Kumo Smoothie – ¥594 (Tax Included)

    To commemorate its opening, the new shop has developed a new item exclusive to the Laforet Harajuku branch: the “Kumo Smoothie.” Inspired by fluffy clouds, this fruit-packed smoothie comes in a pink strawberry milk flavour and blue sky-coloured soda flavour.

    And of course, Cafe de paris’s famous fruit-topped Bon Bon parfaits will be sold too, with the upper part of the parfait towering 20m high. There are 5 seasonal fruits to choose from, such as strawberry, mango and grape.

     

    Cafe de paris has plenty of cute must-buy goodies for customers to enjoy, so if you’re in Japan, why not take the opportunity to try out something popular in South Korea  too while strolling around Harajuku?

  • The Pompompurin Cafe’s New Autumn Dessert Will Warm & Fill You Up

    26.October.2019 | Uncategorized

    If you’ve not yet been to the Pompompurin Cafe, or this is your first time hearing about itーthemed entirely on Sanrio’s popular character Pompompurinーthen their two new menu items, available this autumn for the entire month of November, is sure to pull you in.

     

    As the leaves turn red and gold and people order pumpkin spiced lattes for takeout, the Harajuku, Yokohama and Umeda branches of the Pompompurin Cafe want to get in on the autumnal action too. So they have created a special chicken stew and fruit gratin, served as colourful as the season itself is and perfect during any time of the day when your belly is calling for nutrition.

    Chicken Brown Stew: Strolling Along While Looking at the Autumn Colours – ¥1,290 (Before Tax)

    This chicken stew features Pompompurin and his best friend and hamster Muffin. The dish depicts a scene of both of them strolling and getting along while looking at the autumn leaves. Purin is made from rice and sits inside the rich stew while a mashed potato Muffin perches on top of him wearing his hat.  They are surrounded by carrots and other veggies made to look like the vibrant leaves of Japan’s maple and ginkgo trees.

    Fruit Gratin: Hot Spring Warm-Up – ¥1,090 (Before Tax)

    If you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth but also want to warm up then look no further than at Pompompurin and Muffin relaxing together in the hot spring that is this fruit gratin dessert. Purin is made from pumpkin flavoured ice cream while Muffin is of the vanilla kind. They are warming themselves up in a fruit-packed custard cream sauce. The fruit is drizzled in sauce and cooked to make the fruit even sweeter and intensify its flavour. Did you see the cute towels on their heads too? Many people do this in Japan when getting into the hot spring (or “onsen”), and you might have seen it if you watch anime too.

     

    The fall fun doesn’t stop there however, as all people who dine at the cafe will receive the lunch mat pictured below, and everyone who orders a drink will get a coaster. Available while supplies last.

    Lunch Mat (3 Designs)


    Coaster (1 Design)

  • Eat & Drink in Harajuku at MOSHI MOSHI ROOMS’ Rooftop BBQ

    25.October.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD / SPOT

    Since opening in Harajuku last year, MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON’s ultra-kawaii hotel MOSHI MOSHI ROOMS has been the talk of the town. We are here to announce a new BBQ plan for guests which is held on the hotel rooftop and which you can attend empty-handed.

    MOSHI MOSHI ROOMS is only an 8-minute walk from Harajuku Station. You’ll know you’ve arrived when you spot our neon sign pictured above. It’s on the roof of this building you can look forward to getting your teeth into a delicious BBQ and chugging down drinks.

    The rooftop design takes on a pop appearance, mixing blue with yellow. This cute design alone is enough to get you excited for what’s to come. And since there are no tall buildings around us, you get a great view of Harajuku from below.

    The BBQ plan comes equipped with everything you need: a fire, plates, cups, ingredients, and alcohol. We have a great option of drinks, including beer, wine, whisky, and soft drinks. There’s also a beer server so you can enjoy your beer nice and frosty. If we don’t have a drink you’d like, you can bring your own too. There’s a FamilyMart and other shops nearby, so head there to stock up.

    BBQ Set – ¥6,000 Per Person (Before Tax) *Photo is a select portion example for 5 people

    For grub, our lineup includes meat, fish, egetables, fried onigiri, and sweets. There’s Japanese beef too, as well as Japanese chicken, pork, lamb, sausage, and more. We prepare the most delicious ingredients for the current season. There’s a lot of different meats to choose from, so rest assured you won’t go hungry.

    All the food is seasoned for you, so you can drop it all on straight away and get straight to eating.

    Make a toast with your drinks and tuck in! The wagyu beef is nice and plump once it comes off the fire. One bite of the soft meat will treat your taste buds to a luxurious sweetness and the meat’s delightful juices.

    The chicken is seasoned sweet and spicy. It has a crunchy exterior and soft inside. The lamb is seasoned well too and has that distinct deep flavour lamb has.

    Our fish and vegetables are all in season too. The fish pictured above is salmon cooked in foil and seared skipback tuna. The salmon is seasoned with butter and soy sauce. All of the delicious flavour of the skipback tuna is intensified while prepared on the fire, and the inside is sumptuously tender. It’s seasoned with citrus soy sauce.

    This here is giant okra which I tried for the first time. Giant okra is in season right now too. It’s a lot more elastic than your regular size okra and has a juiciness when you bite into it.

    I was so full already… until dessert arrived! These is a dessert sweet potato roasted on the fire.

    I topped it with vanilla ice cream and tea flavoured ice cream before sprinkling on cornflakes to finish.

     

    The mix of the hot potato and cold ice cream is a match made in heaven inside your mouth. The roasted sweet potato has a subtle sweetness which mixes perfectly with the creamy ice cream. I originally thought I was full but there’s always room for dessert.

    There are parasols too in case it rains. You can even rent out tents from the hotel if you like.

    If you’re looking to stay in Harajuku, come and see us at MOSHI MOSHI ROOMS and enjoy a BBQ with a rooftop view of Harajuku.

There are a limited number of beds in the rooms but there is no limit to how many people stay in a single room, so invite all your friends over for a huge party! And if you tell us in advance that you’re bringing a cake in, you can borrow a cake stand from us so you can make the cake even cuter. The stand is 18cm in diameter so it should hold a whole cake, but be sure to check the size of yours in advance.

    There’s no doubt you’ll enjoy your birthday party even more if you spend it in our pink haven. There is a kitchen with plates, cutlery and everything you need to cook up more snacks and food for your party too.

    The new fully refurbished Shibuya PARCO shopping complex is set to reopen on November 22, 2019. When Shibuya PARCO closed for renovations in 2016, GALLERYX BYPARCO was moved to Spain-zaka in the centre of Shibuya. This November, GALLERY X will return to its home on the basement floor 1 of the shopping complex. 

    The first opening exhibition of GALLERY X is titled “AKIRA ART OF WALL Katsuhiro Otomo × Kosuke Kawamura AKIRA ART EXHIBITION” which will see an entire wall decorated in a collage of art by manga author and film director Katsuhiro Otomo and his legendary series AKIRA until May 2020. 

     

    The art wall is in fact a relocation of the AKIRA art wall that has existed at the infrastructure building site in Shibuya for almost two years. Parts of it was damaged over time, and so it will resurface at PARCO MUSEUM TOKYO on the 4th floor of the new Shibuya PARCO. That’s not all: there will also be valuable original works displayed as well as posters, 3D model recreations of things seen in AKIRA, the series soundtrack by Geinoh Yamashirogumi playing, 3D attractions where you can interact with a futuristic “Neo Tokyo” and much more. 

    AUTO MOAI (December 2019)

    Kazuki Iio (Zun) (December 2019)

    Misaki Tanaka (February ー March 2020)

    JUN INAGAWA (April 2020)

    The first exhibition will be followed by a strong lineup of exhibitions. The exhibition areas will be filled with a wide range of attractions, making it appealing for a wide range of people with different tastes.
