Japan’s rabbit island and cat island(s) are islands where hundreds of bunnies and cats (respectively) live freely~ with only very few people (residents/caretakers) who stay in the island to take care of them/feed them. (=ↀωↀ=)
Rabbit island is locally known as Okunoshima, while there are about a dozen cat islands in Japan, but the most popular islands are Aoshima Island and Tashirojima. They have become must-visit tourist spots in Japan for cat-lovers and bunny-lovers!
So, which would you prefer, Bunny Island or Cat Island?
The meaning of Kawaii has gone beyond its original sense. It is no longer just a word that means “cute,” “pretty” or “adorable” in Japanese. Kawaii is now considered a global phenomenon because of its great influence in art, fashion, beauty and even food. It is not just an appreciation for all things cute and fun but also a way of looking at the world in a happy and positive light. Kawaii is a culture enjoyed by many people from all over the world including the Philippines.
In 2013, the ultimate kawaii experience was brought to the Philippines through “Kawaii in Manila” – a kawaii lifestyle workshop filled with a variety of kawaii-related activities. Following the success of the workshop, the Kawaii PH team decided to take the ultimate kawaii experience to a whole new level by staging the first ever Kawaii convention in the country this September 6, 2014 –Kawaii in Manila 2.
Kawaii in Manila 2 is a day-long convention dedicated to promoting the interest and appreciation for the kawaii culture through various kawaii-related programs and activities. Kawaii in Manila 2 aims to unite people who share a common interest in Japanese culture, animation, fashion, and everything in between.
