COKON LAB
“Soothing your skin and benefitting your lifestyle with silk”

Yamaga City in Kumamoto Prefecture was once a town that thrived on silkworm cultivation. It was 2014 when the challenge to create a brighter future for silk began in this city. Silk, which has been a part of our lives since ancient times, is now being researched all over the world as a material that can make people feel better.

The silk that silkworms spin is 100% protein and it has a superior moisture-retaining function. Cokon Lab contains Yamaga Silk which is spun by silkworms carefully reared in a clean room eating artificial feed made from organic mulberry leaves cultivated independently in Yamaga City, Kumamoto Prefecture. It contains more protein that other silk - this is a factor in moisture retention - and it exhibits good moisture-retaining effects.

The mulberry leaves that are used for feed are grown organically in “the orchard in the sky” created on reclaimed agricultural land that had been abandoned in the mountains at a height of 600m above sea level.

SHOWA KINEN KOEN

Over 20,000 square meters of fields and 6 million cosmos flowers make this festival one of the largest flower festivals in the country. The 30 different species of cosmos, each with their own blossoming period, mean that you can enjoy the festival from late September to early November.

Showa Kinen Kōen (昭和記念公園 – Showa Memorial Park) was built to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the former Emperor Showa's reign. Covering an area of 180 hectares (440 acres) or around 31 Tokyo Dome's, Showa Kinen Kōen is by far Tokyo's largest park.

Showa Kinen Kōen is divided into five zones: water, forest, open grass, culture and exhibition. The park's premier places for autumn colors are the ginkgo tree-lined canal in the southeast corner and the Japanese Garden with its many maple trees. The Emperor Showa Memorial Museum is located in the park's southwest corner (outside of the Tachikawa park entrance). The museum exhibits photos and personal belongings of the late Emperor, from his botanical collection to the car he used to travel in.

Other attractions inside the park include a bonsai museum and a large children's play area with slides and bouncing domes. There is also a boating lake where visitors can rent row or pedal boats by the hour, a barbecue and adjoining sports facility area, a waterpark (open from July to September) and a small folk village with a traditional farm house. Some of the attractions require additional fees. There are also a few cafes and food stalls scattered around the park.

Getting around the park is best done by rental bicycle. Rental outlets are located at the multiple park entrances and charge 420 yen for three hours or 530 yen for the entire day. Bicycles allow visitors to easily traverse the park via the extensive bike-only track network. Alternatively, there is a park train (on wheels) that connects the different areas of the park for 310 yen per ride.

MIYASHITA PARK RENOVATION

Miyashita Park in Shibuya has been renovated and now has many stores and galleries,

“In an open and airy space, you can go shopping, eat, play sports, and even play at night. This is like a "four-story park" opened in the middle of Shibuya. You are free to spend your time. Please enjoy the new cultural spot that was born in Shibuya, the city of diversity.” 

In addition to the skating rink and bouldering wall that have been popular as symbols of Shibuya Street, a multipurpose sports facility has been newly established. Furthermore, the approximately 1,000 m² lawn open space that crosses the sky of Shibuya wears green arches over the years and blends into the city as a place of relaxation where you can relax freely. A multifunctional public space that combines pleasant nature with exciting activities. That is the new Miyashita Park

About 90 unique shop owners gather in the park. Various stores such as high-end brands, record shops, shared offices, galleries, restaurants and bars are all here. The total length is about 330m. There is a cute Yoko-cho small street with food from prefectures all over Japan.
