Summer is coming and everybody is starting thinking about his vacation.
If you have not yet made your decision, let me introduce a fun and original destination to enjoy your vacation!
Finland and Moomin World!
Finland is beautiful country with his natural landscape, but it is also the home country of the Moomin family and Tove Jansson. Naturally it is possible to enjoy both, as my colleague will do actually next month! We all envy him, don’t we?
The special tour schedule includes a visit to Moomin world (theme park), museum, shop, factory (Arabia and Finlayson) and also unique places, such as seaside which inspired Tove Jansson for one her comics and a tea saloon she enjoyed.
Yes, it is a great trip for everybody who loves or wants to discover Moomin and Scandinavia!
Like me, if you stay in Japan, we still have plenty of opportunities to enjoy Moomin world. Around Japan, there are Moomin cafés and stores.
But check at first our webshop, where many Moomin goods are on sale, including Finlayson. A Finish 190 year long history textile manufacturer offering unique and cute Moomins Items and on sales on Hosiikamo web shop!
Today, I would like invite you to our new sales space. Since Friday, a large selection of our best items is on sales in the Department Store Odakyu (8th floor), located in Shinjuku. It is for everybody in Tokyo a real chance to find unique design products, but also to feel the real Scandinavian lifestyle.
During the golden week, Ms. Hama, our friendly partner and elegant table coordinator, made me really happy by sending me a beautiful picture of a lily of the valley. It is actually my favorite flower and I love its perfume.
Talking about Ms. Hama, last month she organized a lesson to introduce her work and of course also her creativity and coordinate talents. One more time, she makes us really happy by using one of our items: a beautiful Georg Jensen Damask tablecloth. Danish fabric brand and Purveyor to her Majesty the Queen of Denmark, the company has a long history, quality and know-hows. Of course, we are always honored when our quality items are used by talented designer or coordinator.

Located in Kichijoji, a really nice area with select shop and also Scandinavian shops, the gallery was ideal: convivial and calm. The exhibition gives you the possibility to see her work: paintings, children books and notebooks.
The atmosphere was really friendly and I had the chance to talk with Anna Vasco. I had a nice time talking with her. As all the Scandinavian designers I have met, she is a really nice person: kind, friendly, smart… When talking with her, you can feel design is at first a passion for her. You can notice it also in her cute work: rich creativity and full of emotion!
In Japan, Thursday will be the day of the children, so what about a beautiful experience in the Scandinavian children world with Anne Vasco?
