Although we’re still in recovery mode after the excitement of Mr. Yabatan’s adventure in Osaka, in last week’s episode, we’re getting right back into it! Osaka’s independent art scene is lively and colorful. Emphasis on colorful. While he was in Osaka, Mr. Yabatan got an up close look at some one of a kind, handcrafted accessories and wearable art and was eager to share it with Misha and RinRin, in Tokyo. The ladies also have a colorful cooking experience, making rainbow takoyaki with an outcome you don’t want to miss seeing.
We also have a special Kawaii in Real Life, featuring Emily Meow, the runner-up of the Kawaii Fashion Contest 2017. What makes this edition so special, you ask? Well, Emily takes us on a little tour of her life as a DJ in Brighton, and shares a tutorial detailing how she achieves her unique kawaii style mixed with drag makeup inspired by an up-and-coming Texas drag superstar. Plus she takes a trip to the Manga Comic-Con at the Leipzig Book Fair, in Germany! Using makeup styling learned from a young queen, hailing from Lancaster PA, she gives an attendee an unforgettable kawaii-drag makeover! This episode is proof that we keep it at 100, here at Kawaii International!

Kawaii International is a direct link to Tokyo, the most fashion forward city in the world.
On the first and second Friday of every month a new episode is uploaded to our FREE video-on-demand site. Be sure to visit the NHK World YouTube channel for sneak previews and exclusive content!
