To catch a glimpse of our first collaboration, head down to the Volks Store called Hobby Tengoku in Akihabara. Just get off at Akihabara station Electric Town exit - but turn right after the ticket barriers and walk towards the main Chuo Dori street - you will see Hobby Tengoku on the right.
The store staff have been really creative in creating some POP (Point Of Purchase advertising) to decorate the display.
The Moekanji card "日" (hi) which means "sun" or "day" features Mirai-chan and the gang.
Kimono Mirai-chan from the Moekanji card "竹" (take) which means "bamboo."
I've mentioned it before but this package of Moekana is the last of its kind - we won't be printing it anymore as we are working on Moekana 2nd Edition. If you have not got it yet then you may want to snap it up as it will be a rare item ^^

This cutout comes with a carton of Moekanji - retailers will find them in the box.
And here are the Volks x Mirai Suenaga collaboration illustrations!

I've always loved the Volks Dollfie Dream line of dolls which have really had an impact on my life - not only are they so cute and great to have around - they have also enabled me to connect with other Dollfie Dream owners around the world. My first Dollfie Dream I got was Saber back in 2008.
Earlier on this year, I met up with the Managing Director of Volks and her team. We discussed ways in which we can collaborate with each other and this is just part 1!Keep em peeled for more.
