Konnichiwa everyone! Ogenki desuka? This is Yoko from Ichiroya.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
OK everyone!!, this is the newsletter you have been waiting for!!
Here I go, today's topic is about (drums.......) Cosplay!!!!! I know many of you who shops at Ichiroya enjoy Cosplay or have interests in Manga/Anime/Game. Just past week, there was a Cosplay event in Tokyo, and our staff Natsumi attended the event cosplaying in a character from her favorite Manga.
Can you tell what character she is? from which Manga? If you know, you are an expert!!!
In case you are not familiar with Anime/Mange/Game, the top photo is Souza Samonji from Token-Ranbu, and the above photo is Ryu from Breath of Fire. The photos look as if they just came out of Manga!!! Amazing!
About 30 cosplayers attended this event, but they can put together double the amount on the weekend, Natsumi said.
Apparently, there are many Cosplay events held in Osaka throughout the year too, and Natsumi said the biggest one in Osaka is called 'Nippombashi Street Festa'. Have you heard of it?
Millions of people from all over the world attend this special event, cosplaying in their favorite characters.
Natsumi thinks popular character among Gaikokujn maybe from One Piece and Dragon Ball Manga.
As you can see Natsumi's cosplay is so perfect! that she draws much attention by other cosplayers, and she is often asked for a handshake or a photo shoot!! Sugoi!
At Ichiroya, Natsumi is a very reserved, charming, and hard working employee who handles our Amazon Japan shop.
She can handle listing hundreds of items on Amazon without a single drop of sweat!
She normally dresses in casual clothing like jeans and hoodie at work, but when it comes to Cosplay, she can be very dramatic and bold!!!
Can you tell these are the same person???
Why not dress in unique Kimono for Halloween to start!!??
Kimono and Happi

You do not need to look perfect!
Enjoy cosplay! and mix matching.
It is a beautiful Autumn in Japan now, and rice is being harvested this month in our area.
Rice patties near my house have golden rice stalks and they are probably being harvested this weekend, so I quickly took some photos of them.
Aren't they beautiful?
Thanks you so much for your attention and have a lovely weekend!
