New souvenirs of Tokyo, “AKB48 Tokyo Pastel Sand” which features idol group AKB48, has been on sale limitedly at JR’s Tokyo station and Shinagawa station since March 16th.
This product is a new sweet that includes fluffy marshmallows put between slightly bitter chocolate. The first flavor introduced was strawberry, followed by green tea, and orange chocolate. There’s only a limited amount, so the period to pick up these sweets is limited as well.
In addition to selling sweets, AKB48 member Takahashi Minami has been chosen to be the carriage announcer for “AD Train” (train advertising campaign), on the Yamanote Line as of March 17th until April 15th.
Photographer Ninagawa Mika also created featured station posters of Maeda Atsuko, Kashiwagi Yuki, and Oshima Yuko for Tokyo Station and Shinagawa Station, that will be used for three months.
