I love Japan.. it is a gorgeous country with gorgeous culture and fascinating customs..and it is safe. One of the safest countries in the world that I do not have to worry about my safety wherever I am. The people are polite and I just love the rich history…and of course yummy and healthy food selection..
Anyway, for those who likes Japanese food or culture, or are curious about what it is all about, do check out the Japan Festival at Avenue K
This Japan Festival will be happening from now until 21st May 2017 and is bringing first-in-Malaysia experiences with some of the best and authentic products directly imported and brought from Japan as well as exclusive brands from beauty, fashion, food and beverage, lifestyle products and services…
All these specially curated retailers will be available at the Ground Floor Atrium and main entrance of the mall..
I was at the launch and it was certainly fascinating seeing the atrium converted or transformed into a Japanese street with wooden carts and cherry blossoms, the ubiquitous symbol of Japan..
You can also find a traditional Japanese tea room with tatami mats, a traditional Japanese home style flooring since the 12th century..
The ceremonial launch of Avenue K Japan Festival 2017 was officiated by Mr Yasuhiko Karigome, the First Secretary of Japan Embassy and Ms Phang Sze Sze, Deputy General Manager of Avenue K, joined by representatives fron Avenue K Senior Management, Japan National Tourism Board, Japan External Trade Organization, Director of Tourism KL as well as the CEO and General Manager of Fujifilm…
We got to witness the Japanese Taiko Drums Performance and also a beautiful Japanese Traditional Dance done by girls dressed in the more modern but gorgeous Japanese costume, the Hakama..
Be sure to join in the festival as you will get the chance to enjoy the traditions of the festival and also be mesmerized by exciting Japanese-themed activities such as the Japanese Taiko Drums, Japanese Dance where you can also join in the dance, or check out how to wear a Yukata or make sushi or bento, and the art of making Japanese tea…
Kids and those young at heart would have a fun and crazy time playing with MT Washi Tape….
Be sure to check out the new range of Instax compact instant cameras and find out how you can print your photos out for free in a small template poster…
I think the highlight that I really do not want to miss since I have just gotten a chance to witness it would be the Japanese Tea Making Ceremony Competition, where shoppers can taste the premium tea, experience and learn the art of Japanese Tea Making at the Maiko Tea booth.. and even stand a chance to win a pair of tickets worth RM3,488 to Osaka, Japan…How cool is that…
Shoppers can also get to experience Japanese Bouncy Balls scooping which you will be given a paper net to scoop up as many balls as you can before your net tears…with just a minimum RM50 minimum spending.
Spend RM200 and above in a maximum of 2 receipts to get a Franco meal voucher worth RM15….
