Okinawa Kitty

Monday 13th must be my lucky day. So many exciting things have happened.

When I arrived home, I found this surprise in my mail:

A gift from Japan!!


どうも ありがとう ございます Toyooka-san!!! ^^

It’s soooo cute, I love it. ♥ ♥ ♥

Okinawa Kitty

Okinawa Kitty

It is called an Okinawa Kitty and it’s a local limited one. They have local limited Hello Kitty’s in different prefectures in Japan (there’s 47 of them) and something special about that prefecture is shown with the Kitty.

When I met Toyooka-san here in Stockholm, he gave me a Shizuoka-Kitty who drank green tea on the Fuji mountain for example. ^^ Shizuoka is known for its green tea and the Fuji mountain.

Toyooka-san explained to me that this Kitty looks a bit like a Shiisa, a Okinawan mythological creature that is a cross between a lion and a dog. Shiisas are wards, believed to protect from evils.

Can’t explain how grateful and happy I am that someone thinks of me and gives me something special like this. Thank you!

Welcome! This is not an actual news site but a personal blog, run by an ordinary person who loves visual kei. This is my space where I ventilate thoughts and values and shares happenings within the scene. My goal is to make information easy to access and to support artists and movements that I admire. Especially smaller bands that need an extra push in the djungle of major bands. English is not my native tounge so please condone my linguistic mistakes.
