The Meiji-Mura museum’s website announced that it will hold a collaboration event with the historical-themed anime series Golden Kamuy from September 19 to November 23. During this period, the anime will be presented at the museum in multiple forms, including a puzzle-solving event, a stamp rally, a shooting game challenge, and various eateries which will sell Golden Kamuy-themed food.
There will be two puzzle-solving events. The first one, called “The Legendary Dish at a Certain Village,” is created by AnotherVision. It costs 1,500 yen (approximately US$14) to participate. The second one, called “Release the Golden Village,” is created by Nazo x Nazo Gekidan, and costs 1,800 yen (approximately US$17) to participate.
The stamp rally and shooting challenge will both cost 500 yen (approximately US$4) to participate in. As visitors collect the stamps, they will take on the look of a multi-coloured Nishiki-e woodblock printing, which was popular in the Meiji era.
The collaboration food/drink items include Yoshitake Shiraishi’s horse-meat hotpot, rice curry with Yezo sika deer meet, Immortal Sugimoto’s mixed berry soda, and Nihei’s blood sausages.
Visitors can also sign up to register as a “resident” of the Meiji-Mura for 2,000 yen (approximately US$19) and receive a card with a Golden Kamuy theme. During the collaboration period, registered “residents” can enter the Meiji-Mura for free and participate in some of the collaboration events at a discount.
The first season of the television anime adaptation of Satoru Noda‘s Golden Kamuy manga premiered in April 2018. The third season is scheduled to premiere on October 5.
The Meiji-Mura is an open-air museum in Inuyama, Aichi which preserves over 60 historic buildings from Japan’s 19th and early 20th centuries.
