【Thank You!】ARK & “Black Cats Hijiki and Wakame” @ FOCUS STUDIO


Our first special event in Tokyo has come to an end. It was fun-packed with lots of activities, including viewing original artwork by Shihomi, meeting our dogs and having photographs taken by a professional photographer. Of course ARK goods and Shihomi’s work was available for purchase. We had a lot of visitors and sold 60,728 yen worth of goods! Several alumni came to visit and enjoyed taking commemorative photos …it was a fun-filled two days.

Thank you to everyone who came! We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to Shihomi for organizing the event and Kentaro Minami for taking beautiful photos!


 ARK is excited to announce a collaborative event with Shihomi, the author of “Kuroneko Hijiki to Wakame”.

“Black Cats Hijiki and Wakame” @ FOCUS STUDIO

There will be an exhibition of Shihomi’s new work “Niji no Hashi kara no Tegami” (Letters from the Other Side of Rainbow Bridge), sales of her picture book “Kuroneko Hijiki to Wakame” (Black Cats Hijiki and Wakame) and ARK goods.

Those who donate more than 3,000 yen or purchase goods worth more than that amount can have their photos taken by a professional photographer – making this an event to remember. Of course, pets are welcome to be in the family photos!

ARK animals looking for homes will have their photos on display and staff will be on hand to answer questions. 

We look forward to seeing you there.
