Just because you can’t travel to Japan right now doesn’t mean you can’t witness the blooming of elusive cherry blossoms right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
In conjunction with Tokyo Street’s 9th anniversary, Pavilion KL’s award-winning precinct has been transformed into a dynamic cultural ambience. Taking inspiration from Asakusa, Ginza and Shibuya, you’ll find plenty of Japanese cultural activities to explore.
1. Soak in the Yukata Experience.
- With a minimum expenditure of RM9 at any specialty stores mall-wide, shoppers can rent a traditional Yukata and snap Insta-worthy photos.
2. Pavilion KL has its own Instagram face filter.
3. Well wishes for 2020.
- Tanabata (たなばた) or the Star Festival, is an event originated from the Chinese Qixi Festival. Similar to how Japanese folks do it, you can pick a wish from colourful “tanzaku” papers and tie them on the sakura trees for blessings throughout the year.
4. Art WeMe Contemporary Gallery.
- Take the opportunity to admire the iconic art of Japanese contemporary artist Shiro Utafasa at Level 6. His artwork is inspired by the fascinating sunflower, a popular plant of cultural significance in Japan.
