【9/14~9/26 Pre-sale at Isetan Shinjuku store】‘Godzilla’ and a craftsmanship in Kyoto finally get together!


  ‘KOTO-HAJIME’ project, a brand name of product development with the among the traditional craft industry in Kyoto.


  Second production is a collaboration with ‘Godzilla’, which you also know that a new movie is in the news recently. Under the supervision of Toho Co., Ltd., we are finally able to launch original products using traditional crafts in Kyoto.


  A new movie called ’Shin・Godzilla’ has been a big hit since the release in July. In order to express the world of the monster ‘Godzilla’ representing Japan, also we featured these items in BEACON KYOTO as well, we requested a cooperation to Mr.Masahisa Asada (Asada Seikawara Tile Factory), Kyogawara Onishi, and Hiyoshiya, the only Wagasa maker in Kyoto to make collaboration products. Mr.Asada is well-known for making tiles for historical buildings in japan such as  Nanzen-ji Temple, Toji Temple, and Obakuzan Manpuku-ji Temple. On the other hand, Hiyoshiya reproduced a big wagasa umbrella that Salvador Dali favored to use regularly and now it is exhibited in The Dali Museum (Spain).


 Thanks to these two great companies, we are now officially announce to do a pre-sale event at Isetan Shinjuku Store from Sep 14th (wed) ~ Sep 26th (mon) in 2016 through an event of traditional crafts and Japanese culture.


  After this event, we are going to sell these items through our website BEACON EC and other stores. Moreover, some of them will be sold in Isetan online store as well.
