ポケモンセンタートウキョー Pokemon Center Tokyo

October 25th, 2010

昨年日本橋から浜松町に移転したポケモンセンタートウキョー。この夏休みも親子連れで大人気。
お高めの値段設定、それを次々欲しがる子供たち、それを渋々あるいは喜んで買ってあげる親の姿に、キャラクタービジネスのすごさを見ることができます。
ポケモンセンター東京は、浜松町駅の新橋・東京寄り、海側のビル2Fにあり、新幹線・京浜東北線・山手線・東海道線からも、ウインドウのピカチュー達と、ショップの周りに群がる家族連れの姿が見られます。

apple logo3 地下鉄乗り換えアプリGo!TOKYOで大幅なアップデート!

更新に8ヶ月以上を費やしてしまいましたが、私たち開発チームはGo!TOKYOアプリを益々見やすく使いやすいモノに作り直しました。例えば、主にJRの16路線が追加され、路線図を拡大し、都内近県の主要な駅も追加。駅名検索と始発・終電時刻表など、たくさんの機能を兼ね備えています。なんとこれは以前の4倍の情報量になり、現段階ですでに500以上の駅をカヴァーしていますが、まだまだ完全網羅までは遠い道のりです。今後のアップデートでは私鉄なども追加し、どんどん便利にしていきます。そして忘れてはいけないのが、このアプリはiPadにも対応しているので、iPadユーザーの皆さまも是非どうぞ。

追加されたコンテンツだけでなく、大幅なデザイン変更の最たるものは、各路線すべての駅を一つずつ個別のページ別け、より詳しい情報が見られるようになったことです。参考までにこちらのスクリーンショットをご覧ください。

「リトルアンバサダー」について
「リトルアンバサダー」は、IWCJが、こどもたちが各国の大使館の方と交流する機会として2009年10月より、大使公邸などで開催しているイベントです。こどもたちは、国を代表する大使・大使夫人やシェフとクッキングなどを通して交流することで、海外と触れ合います。さらに、音楽やダンス、大使館の方々とのコミュニケーションなど、アクティビティも織り交ぜることで、その国の文化や言葉・習慣などを学ぶことができます。このイベントでの国際交流を通じて、将来の活躍の場を拡げられる「Little Ambassadors(小さな親善大使)」を育てます。
当ホテルは、IWCJの活動に賛同し、国際交流の場を提供するとともに、ホテルスタッフがイベントに参加することで、未来を担うこどもたちの国際交流活動に貢献したいと考えております。当ホテルの位置する港区には在日外国人が多く、より多くの方々に参加していただける環境にあること、また、在日外国人と日本人の交流の場として、世界各国の方々が集まるホテルは最適であることから、今回のIWCJとのイベント共催に至りました。また、ホテルのレストランのキッチンを使用し、ホテルのシェフも一緒に参加することで、より本格的な料理体験をしていただくことができます。

「ドミニカ共和国」
こどもたちが、ドミニカ共和国大使館のシェフや大使館の方と料理や、国に関するアクティビティをすることで、日本にいながらにしてドミニカ共和国の言葉、文化、習慣に触れることができます。
海外についての興味を育てるとともに、海外の方たちとのコミュニケーションを通じて、コミュニケーション力、広い視野、柔軟な発想力をつけると同時に、日本にも目を向けることで、将来国際舞台でも通用する柔軟な人になってほしいという願いを込めたプログラムです。

Research reveals that the first observance of Cinco de Mayo in America was in fact in the state of California to celebrate the Mexican resistance to French rule.

The festivities include indulgence in traditional Mexican food, music, and dance. Since The Pink Cow is sort of California in the middle of Tokyo we thought we would do a couple of events to commemorate it:) This is the first one featuring yummy Mexican food specials & Live Latin Jazz.

From 7pm, No Entry Charge! Just come hungry!

Tuesday night chill out with card games! Bring cards, games, chips and friends for good old fashioned fun! Beers & Burritos as always!

Topic: “Social Media Myths” — Putting the Social back into Social Meda
by Gil Chavez
——————————————————————————————
Think social media has completely changed the marketing game? Well, think again. The old rules of marketing still apply – There are no shortcuts. The myth of viral marketing is stronger than ever and a lot of misunderstanding in the marketing world thanks to social media. This month our featured speaker, Gil Chavez, will discuss how the traditional rules of marketing, branding, and persuasion still apply to today’s social media while dispelling some of the myths about surrounding social media. Gil will show us how to best leverage social media by “Putting the Social back into Social Media” by applying some the key persuasion concepts of Robert Chaldini, the author of the seminal marketing book “Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion”, and other marketing gurus to social media such as: – Participation: Rule #1 of branding- Stickiness: Why numbers don’t matter- Incremental Yes: Become a fan Gil Chavez is the President and founder of BC Consulting, and as a communications professional and educator for 20 years he has worked with many of the top brands in the Asia Pacific region and the U.S. Gil is a professor of marketing communications in the MBA program at the International University of Japan.
