Hallohallo Inc. brings you the coolest festival that features the Japanese culture and the Japanese pop scene, Cool Japan Festival.
November 7 & 8, Trinoma Activity Center --- Japanese culture at its finest on the biggest event yet at Trinoma, brought to you by Hallohallo Inc. This event highlights the biggest idols from Japan and the Philippines -- AKB48’S Team 8, Alodia Gosiengfiao, Akishibu Project and Kawaii5 featuring Amachan. Also performing for the said event is the Japanese drum group, Tokoro Taiko.
Opening ceremony of the event will start at 10:30AM, performance by Tokoro Taiko will surely be a great highlight for a lively opening. This will then be followed by the introduction of the VIP guests. Also, important announcements and launches will be held at the ceremony, such as the launching of a travel guide magazine, Lani Lani Magazine, as well as the announcement of Jounetsu Tairiku Broadcast.
The company’s future projects will be highlighted as well, such as the Street Children Back to School Program Launch as part of the company’s corporate responsibility activity and the announcement of the World’s No. 1 Disco Project, bringing the Tokyo’s nightlife closer to everyone.
The opening ceremony is already promising, what more with the event proper, right? For two days, we will experience the otakuness the Japanese pop culture fans really want to see. First up is the highly rated Japanese drama, Amachan to be featured with the Filipino girl quintet Kawaii5, this is to be followed by a cosplay show by none other than the cosplay queen herself, Alodia Gosiengfiao, side by side with the Japanese idol Akishibu Project. Then, a photo session will be held after and Japanese-themed fashion items will also be exhibited. Finally, the popular Japanese girl group AKB48’s Team 8 will be joining the festival to give an energetic performance straight from Japan.
Go get the group and have your girlfriends go gaga over kawaii style makeups by BCL cosmetics, or even yet, sport the latest Tokyo street fashion style and have cool authentic Japanese items up for grabs at Cool Japan Shop’s booth. I guarantee that the whole family and the squad will have a good time this weekend.
Grab those chopsticks and eat like a pro! From takoyaki to yakitori, imagawayaki (aka Japanese cakes) to cotton candy, name your fave Japanese food and we’ll definitely satisfy your cravings. Not only that, we also have a chef straight from Japan who will show us how to make a sushi -- a special treat for all sushi lovers out there!
To make it more fun and exciting, Cool Japan Festival gives children a chance to use their imagination by drawing sea creatures on paper. These drawings then come to life as projections that swim freely on Team Lab virtual aquarium. Not only that, these kids can actually feed the fishes! Cool, right?
It doesn’t end there. Cool Japan Festival brings Team Lab Camera, a digital signage that automatically takes a photo of visitors then instantly alters the image with backgrounds such as manga and comic effects, change of clothing and scenery, and 360 degree photography among others. Visitors will have fun strutting different poses and these will be directly uploaded to Facebook.
Keep calm and kitty on as Sanrio participates in the festival giving you nothing but kitty goodies from the kitty icon who’s not a cat, but a British girl (according to her recent interview *gasps*). All these and more!
Cool Japan Festival is brought to you by Hallohallo Inc. The fun doesn’t start until you’re not there! Free admission for everyone! For more inquiries, just go to facebook.com/cooljapanfestival2015.
