I appeared a local magazine "Fujimani"

November 10, 2017



My town Fujisawa city is one of famous tourist spot.

Thus our city is not big city but there are many small publisher in Fujisawa.

Fujimani publishing is one of them.

I feel that Fujimani is the most popular free magazine in this area.


One fine day, my friend Yukari, photographer of Fujimani, offered me that " what do you think to do model of Fujimani?"

Last summer, Yukari also offered me to appear a local TV program. And I appeared that TV program.

Yukari is an angel for me.


I became a mother who was in Showa era, wearing nostalgic kimono on top page.


To tell the truth, this front page is a parody.

Original is below ↓↓





This is a famous package of retort curry produced by Otsuka Foods.

The model is Ms. Yoko Matsuyama, a famous actress active in the mid-Showa era.

This curry is called Bon Curry.

Bon curry is the first retort curry born in 1968.


Thus, Fujimani challenged this great package.

Above is an article about me.

I played a role as an mother in Showa era.

Location is nostalgic shopping street near Enoshima island.

I wore kimono of wool.

Wool kimono was very hot in fashion in mid-Showa( 1950s-70s).

Han eri ( collar ) is pink.

This is a feature of mid-Showa.

White Han eri is popular now, but in that era, colored Han eri was popular.

Bag patch-worked is my favorite.

This bag was made by Ms. Kachiki,  a neighbor of my parents' house.

She is very good creator and tailor.


This article is my treasure.
