AFA Report for NHK Kawaii International

October 05, 2017

For those of you whom are into Japanese Pop Culture must have known about the biggest Japanese event in Indonesia, which is Anime Festival Asia (AFA) that's held yearly. They offer tons of interesting booths, hold creative cosplay competitions, invite top-notch cosplayers and J-artists, and provide one stop experience about Japan. Regarding to my role as Indonesia's Kawaii Leader, I was asked by NHK WORLD - Kawaii International to report about the kawaii activities on the event! 

If you visit AFA, you might notice the big NHK WORLD Booth that has this Domo-kun Time Capsule. Time Capsule is a letter that you write for future self (5/10/20 years time). It is a part of Japanese Pop Culture that you might often see on anime and manga, where the characters dig their own time capsules and reminded by their young self. At the booth, you could decorate your Kawaii Time Capsule and put it inside Domo kun, it was without any fee and all the decorations were provided directly from Japan by NHK Team

I just had to try the experience as well! Beside Domo Time Capsule, there was Domo Photobooth as well. They also brought Domo-kun a few times a day. Basically it's a kawaii event inside an event! Besides the event, I interviewed tons of people whom attended the AFA event that wore amazing kawaii fashions as well. It's so fun finding people with the same fashion

All the activities were recorded by me for NHK WORLD Kawaii International, which you can watch the show TOMORROW!
