■ What is the KAWAii!! NiPPON EXPO 2014?
KAWAii!! NiPPON EXPO 2014 is a large-scale expo that is the culmination of a variety of different content from the Harajuku, Akihabara, J-POP, anime music and other genres popular internationally (especially in Asia and Europe), together with other Japanese subcultures aiming to expand into the international scene. It goes without saying that visitors from within Japan can enjoy different types of fashion and music, but a variety of exhibit booths will also be set up to allow visitors to express and experience Japanese subculture as well. We are also in the process of actively creating a big expo aimed at attracting visitors from countries in Europe, Asia, and around the world. It is going to be a genuine, full-scale J-POP culture festival.
KAWAii!! NiPPON EXPO 2014 is a joint collaboration between Idol Yokocho, which delivers a wide variety of content on idols, from Akihabara and local idols to major idols on the main stage, and HARAJUKU KAWAii!!, which provides Harajuku-style KAWAII (cute) culture, creating a fusion of two great content types for the ultimate attraction.

■ What is HARAJUKU KAWAii!!?
HARAJUKU KAWAii, under its theme of “making ‘KAWAII’ a well-known, fashionable word throughout the world,” is a girls event that delivers the Harajuku kawaii culture to the world, and after bringing together a cast of hot talent from a variety of music and fashion scenes to hold their first event in July of 2011, they have mobilized a total of 27,000 people at venues at the Shin-Kiba Studio Coast, ZEPP OSAKA, Tokyo Big Site, and in France. In addition, they achieved the mobilization of around 10,000 people during the HARAJUKU KAWAii!! FES 2012 held in Harajuku over two days in September of last year! The festival of “Harajuku Culture” is a fusion between a fashion show and live music show that brings together performances from popular models, artists, and idols.

Past Event Venues: Tokyo O-EAST / Zepp Osaka / Tokyo STUDIO COAST / Tokyo Big Site / France JAPAN EXPO 2012.

■ What is Idol Yokocho?
The first general girls unit and idol official goods store, Idol Yokocho began in Akihabara but has now expanded to 5 shops throughout Japan, and is currently developing an online shop as well. In addition, they also manage their “idolyokocho” brand on the ZOZOTOWN online retail shopping site, publish the “Idol Yokocho Newspaper”, their unique media source, and more. They also host a variety of live events bringing in around 2000 people 2 to 3 times a year, and have been attracting attention for their active role in promoting all things girls unit and idol, as people know that they can find out about the hottest new idols by going to Idol Yokocho.
