Get ready for a dose of all things Japanese as Malaysia’s premier shopping destination, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, celebrates the 9th anniversary of award-winning precinct Tokyo Street this July!
Tokyo Street merges traditional and modern facets into one dynamic cultural ambience. Drawing inspiration from the iconic districts in Tokyo – Asakusa, Ginza and Shibuya – Tokyo Street blends the urban cosmopolite-feel with the rich heritage and traditions of Japan.
While many were not able to travel to Japan to witness the blooming of the elusive sakura (cherry blossoms), this should not stop you from witnessing their beauty as symbols of spring, hope and renewal.
Let’s immerse yourself in exciting cultural activities, promotions, delectable treats and rewards this July. Pavilion KL invites you to partake in the hanami or “blossom-watching” custom with family and friends. Towering sakura trees greet you at the Main Entrance, along Spanish Steps and can be found throughout the mall, culminating at Tokyo Street where displays of origami, yukata and other uniquely Japanese items collectively form an ambience found only at Pavilion KL.
Embrace the Japanese culture and bask in the festivities! Just spend RM9 at any specialty stores mall-wide to get a chance to put on a traditional Yukata and snap Insta-worthy photos.
In honour of the Tanabata festival, pick a wish from colourful “tanzaku” papers and tie them on the sakura trees for good luck and blessings throughout the year.
In collaboration with Art WeMe Contemporary Gallery, view the iconic art of Japanese contemporary artist Shiro Utafasa at Level 6, the only place in Malaysia to view this exhibition. He draws inspiration from the fascinating sunflower, a popular plant of cultural significance in Japan.
Try your chances at the claw machines and various arcade game offerings at the Games Galore Fiesta from now until 31st July. Shoppers will receive one games token for your gaming pleasure with RM30 spent on a single receipt, redeemable at Tokyo Street Concierge.
While you are at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, don’t miss out on numerous photo opportunities beautifully decorated with Japanese elements such as the Yukata display, Level 6 or the Love Garden at the Dining Loft, Level 7! Enhance your photos with their exclusive sakura filter on Instagram and share them by hashtagging #HappyAnniversaryTokyoStreet #PavilionTokyoStreet and #PavilionKL.
