Its officially December and we are busy getting ready for our Christmas Market later this month. The Hato team have curated a special selection of gifts from Japan’s famous Hyaku Yen Stores with an array of lifestyle items as well as a selection of our stationery range and limited edition items from our collaborators, favourite artists, and illustrators. We'll also be running a FREE card printing workshop. Please note spaces are limited and on a first come first served basis. Participants will take away 5 cards of their own design. 2 colours only.
Vincent van Gogh’s life as an artist spanned an all-too-short ten years – the art that inspired him in London and Paris was not just that of his contemporaries but also Old Masters and the newly imported works by Japanese printmakers. An art world of galleries, shops, magazines and a network of friendships are at the root of van Gogh’s ideas – but how did they come together in London and Paris?
Join us as we ring in the new year Japanese style with traditional mochi pounding, vibrant taiko drummer performances and kagami biraki, sake barrel breaking. Get your taste of mochi and sake to bring you hope for a happy and prosperous year ahead. For more details and timing, visit www.ichibalondon.com/events
The Virgin Suicides  • 20th Anniversary • In an ordinary suburban house, on a lovely tree-lined street, in the middle of 1970s America, lived the five beautiful, dreamy Lisbon sisters, whose doomed fates indelibly marked the neighborhood boys who to this day continue to obsess over them. A story of love and repression, fantasy and terror, sex and death, memory and longing. It is at its core a mystery story: a heart-rending investigation into the impenetrable, life-altering secrets of American adolescence.
