Giveaway 3 :Eroica Japan Special Tattoo Sticker!!

For visitors to our booth who post on social media with the hashtag #eroicajapan, we'll provide a special tattoo sticker designed by ceramic artist Kitaro, who combines Shizuoka's culture with the traditional ukiyo-e style to capture the essence of Eroica.

Renowned ceramic artist Kitaro beautifully captured the essence of Eroica Japan venue Shizuoka's culture, which is also the setting for Katsushika Hokusai's Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji, in a traditional ukiyo-e style, blending it with the world of Eroica.
Let's spice up L'eroica with unique tattoo stickers!

Carp edition/Left: "Carp Viewed by Kannon" elegantly portrays the flow of water with a sense of speed, symbolizing the grandeur of Eroica.
Lion edition/Right: "Daruma and the Lion" depicts Daruma controlling a fierce lion, much like the heroic Eroica riders conquering challenging gravel courses.
Kitaro: A ceramic artist specializing in painting large dishes, jars, and vases with designs inspired by traditional Japanese and Western-style landscapes and ukiyo-e prints.

The translation of Kanji(Chinese character):
"廻虜伊駕" means becoming captivated (虜) by cycling (駕) around (廻) the Izu Peninsula (伊).
"英雄" translates to Eroica.
"伊" represents both the Izu Peninsula in Japan and is also a character in the Kanji writing for Italy.

Please be aware:
*The design cannot be chosen.
*We have a limited quantity available, and distribution will cease once they are exhausted.
*A similar service will also be available atthe Keio-Kaku Cycle Free Market in Tokyo on October 14, 2023.
