My dear friends, Today I’m going to bring you to a place which is good for a date. This is the Aranzi Café at Banqiao, full of cute and funny Aronzi characters.
Aranzi’s character was designed by Mr. Aranzi and Mr. Aronzo from Daikanyama, Japan. The most popular characters all have their supporters. The initial design was based on hand-made small items. The Japanese girls who liked to do craftsmanship were quickly conquered by these beloved characters and they gradually become more and more famous.
Japan’s cultural and creative industry has always been a world leader. The concept of role marketing is easily accepted in Japan and even spread throughout the world. The famous Sanrio’s roles, such as Hello Kitty, are the best examples.
Even though Taiwan’s cultural and creative industries are slowly gaining attention, it is not so easy for new characters to be accepted by consumers in Taiwan. So the Aranzi’s Taiwan agent “Little Paradise” came up with the idea of creating the Aranzi Café and successfully implanted the adorable image of Aranzi Aronzo into the hearts of the people.
The entrance is full of deep Japanese-style feelings. The white bunny girl in a pink kimono stands next to the cherry blossoms. There is a kind of funny little romance.
We waited for more than half an hour for weekday afternoon tea time. there were tables and chairs outside the store where we could sit and have a rest and chat.
The tables and chairs in the shop are divided into two types. The tatami seats around the wall are very suitable for children to roll around. In the middle of the shop are wooden tables and chairs. There are plenty of seats.
Walls, compartments, cushions, and so on, are filled with various characters of the pattern, like being enthusiastically embraced by these naughty characters.
The menu is also covered with lovely characters. From outside the store to every corner of the store, these characters jump into sight at any time. The role marketing skills are extraordinary. No wonder the cafe drew attention soon after opening. It has also succeeded in getting Taiwanese consumers to accept the roles of Aranzi.
There was no pattern on the matcha milk, but a black rabbit’s stir stick was inserted. Unfortunately, I forgot to take it away. Use the lovely Aranzi cup to drink warm fragrant scented tea, there is an unspeakable happiness.
We only order drinks this time, not dinner or dessert. On the whole, the beverages we ordered all have a certain level of quality. In addition to the appearance, they also pay attention to the basic taste of food.
Fruit tea and flower tea series use candles to maintain the temperature of the tea.
From a consumer’s point of view, the price of these goods really makes people want to pay but feels that the pocket is not deep enough.
However, from the designer’s point of view, it is comforting to see that the character is popular and the value of products have risen greatly because it means that the creativity and value of the designer are respected.
I also hope that more and more successful examples can be made, in addition to foreign designs, Taiwan’s local design can also show its prominence. Although Taiwan’s notion of respect for intellectual property is not as good as that of Japan or Europe and the United States, I still look forward to seeing Taiwan continue to progress.
