On July 7 and 8, Candlewick held an exciting event at Shinjuku Takashimaya. Spa Resort Hawaiians hula girls performed a dynamic hula show and the audience were later invited on stage, took hula lessons and performed with the hula girls in front of the crowd. Some lucky participants were interviewed by a TV crew, which added more excitement to the day.

Customers enjoying the show


After each performance, the hula girls made surprise appearances at the Loco Boutique booth on the 11th floor and took photos with customers.

実はこの時間に様々なドラマがあったのです! 「今日これからハワイアンズへ行くの!」という女の子がいたり、スパリゾートハワイアンズで結婚式を挙げたカップルがたまたま通りかかり、「結婚式の時のダンサーさん?!」と思わぬ再会があったり。スタッフ一同、不思議なご縁を感じずにはいられませんでした。

There were many coincidental happenings on the day – a young lady was actually heading to Spa Resort Hawaiians later that day and a couple who held their wedding at Spa Resort Hawaiians was able to reunite with the same dancer that danced at their wedding!
