Promoter: Sakata Seed Corporation
Grower: JA Shinsunagawa
Item: Helianthus annuus (Sunflower) “Vincent’s series”
Flower design: Ms. Keiko Ueno, Liberte Inc.

 

Another recommendation for Halloween!!
We displayed the series of “Vincent” by Sakata Seed Co. this year too.

The showcase this year got full of the Halloween arrangements in chic modern black that were made by Ms. Keiko Ueno of Liberte Inc.

“Vincent” was named after the Vincent van Gogh, who put his soul into his works of Sunflower.

The type of the Vincent for this time was “Vincent (Type 2) Navel”, and its color is warmer among the series. This is why it goes very well with the color of pumpkins so is suitable for decorations in Fall like for Halloween. The cute shape with its multiple round petals is even great for enjoyable Halloween.kabocha

From September 11th to 28th, we displayed special items for coming Halloween festivals. Not only Pumpkin, which comes the first as a Halloween item, we also displayed other autumnal fruiting branches, and even ornamental materials for creating its ambiance.

Halloween as a fall event, is recently very much popular than ever before in Japan.
It is officially on October 31st as everyone knows, though here in Japan it is celebrated commonly from September!

People here seem to enjoy Halloween in many ways like playing in the costume parades, joining in Halloween festivals held in theme parks, or having a home party with friends.
For such parties, interior goods, cute snacks, or other ornaments to make a good atmosphere are being popular.

So this year, we made a display at our market with the concept of “Glamping de Halloween party.” ☺♫♫♪

Furthermore, we held our seasonal event “Pumpkin Auction” on September 24th. It was the 22nd time as of this year.
During the Pumpkin Auction, disguising trending people is an annual event so for this year, one of the latest Japanese comedians Hyokkorihan, and the tennis player Naomi Osaka showed up.

Literally at the Pumpkin Auction, various pumpkins were auctioned including the tiny little pumpkins called Omocha-Kabocha that can fit in your hand, and the big pumpkins that are so hard to lift up even for large men.
