Tottori Spring Festival

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Whenever Spring comes around I always feel like eating Japanese sweets! I wish I had some delicious Anko right now!!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at the festival taking place in Tottori, Kurayoshi from this week! 

The city of Kurayoshi is located almost in the centre of Tottori Prefecture. When Spring comes the city celebrates with an annual Festival that brings visitors from around the world.The cherry blossoms and rhododendron flowers are famous in Utsufuki Park around the Tottori Museum, which becomes the centre of the festival which runs from the 27th March until the 20th May 2015. Various different events take place during this period. Come by and visit the classic buildings of the ‘The Distant City of Kurayoshi’ while also enjoying the relaxing, gentle Spring air and the fun of the festival.

==================================

This event is a part of the Tottori Spring Festival which GSC has decided to take part in! We’ll be sending staff through all the way from today until the end of the event! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

 

Time for a quick summary!

Kurayoshi City is located in…

Tottori Prefecture! (`・ω・´)ゞ

△ Tottori Airport is also known as ‘Tottori Sand Dunes Conan Airport

It takes about 45 minutes to get from the airport to Kurayoshi City! From Kurayoshi station you can take a bus to the figure exhibition in about 20 minutes!

△ The top right is the station. The green mark is Tottori museum.

The Tottori Museum is very close to Utsufuki Park!

The GSC Staff went ahead to take a look at the museum before the event…

It’s a picture perfect museum!

But just how, and what figures will be on display here?!

Sugar Lily-senpai has been constantly racking her brain on how to work the exhibition, but things will all be revealed soon!

Of course the Nendoroid #1~500 display that was also seen at AnimeJapan and Comiket Special will also be at the event! The display will be different to the other figures though! (。・ω・)ノ゙

△Above shows the display at AnimeJapan!

Plus once you’ve come and had a look at the figures, I also highly recommend taking a walk around the nearby Utsufuki Park! ☆

△ A park that is perfect to visit in Spring weather! ♪

While you’re having a break in the park…

You can grab some special Nendoroid Sakura Miku: Bloomed in Japan collaboration dango: Utsufuki Park Dango: Nendoroid Sakura Miku Version!

Don’t they look delicious!

△ They’re a nice small, easy-to-eat size!

Plus as a bonus to those who buy the collaboration product, you’ll get this adorable Sakura Miku sticker!

△ The dango on her tray match the real things!

Note that you can also order the Utsufuki Park Dango: Nendoroid Sakura Miku Version from the Kouen Dango website, as well as their stores in other locations! (●´ω`●)ゞ

* Please note that sales periods differ between stores.

By the way! Kurayoshi City is filled with many storehouses, and is known as…

The White-walled Storehouse City!

Just taking a walk around the city is like walking though a page in history! φ(.. )

If you do come by and visit, be sure to take a stroll around and enjoy the older buildings! Anyway, enough about the location and exhibition, let’s move onto what items will be on sale at the event! (σ・∀・)σ

Nendoroid Plus: Sakura Miku Goods

All sorts of goods featuring the Nendoroid illustration of Sakura Miku have been made for the event! (*Please note that Nendoroid Sakura Miku: Bloomed in Japan itself will NOT be sold at the event. )

A white shirt with a simple pink line drawing! so cute!! ♥︎
The T-shirt will be available in three different sizes! A great way to remember the event!
