Have you heard of Namco NamjaTown?
They have famous gyoza stores from all over japan on its first level and desserts/icecream on the 2nd level.
I wrote a blog entry about this place over a year ago HERE
[If you dont know much abt this place, you should read my old blog entry first]
Anyway Namjatown has many events and last year in December, they had the One Piece Event
One piece is a manga currently running in Shonen Jump and has also been made into an anime
It is also the number 1 selling manga in Japan [according to Oricon Charts]
There are many desserts created specially for this event. [Ie they are not being made anymore sadly]
The desserts made are VERY pretty and intricate. I’m sad they are only available for such a short time.
As usual there are specially designed food/desserts for this limited time
Each specific dessert comes with a particular bookmark of the character[s] the dish is inspired by.
I’m going to try going next weekend! If i manage to go, i will share photos with you!
This event ends next sunday! [7th November] So if you wish to go, dont hesitate!
Here is namjatown’s website http://www.namja.jp/
If you cant make it for this event, there is another manga/anime related event from November 15th till December 26th!
Yup its Kuroshitsuji!
I didnt post a pic of the specially designed desserts/dishes as there will be FORTY available! [omg!]
In other news, it was Halloween on the weekend! Did you go trick or treating?
Thats not something we generally do in Japan. The day is perhaps more for adults than children over here as many clubs hold halloween events etc.
