Blackcabbit's World

Blackcabbit (aka. Dionnie Takahashi) is an illustrator living in Japan. She loves drawing whimsical animal characters, as well as doing handmade crafts to beautify the world she lives in.

What’s a Blackcabbit?


Dionnie Takahashi

I thot I’ll answer this familiar question, which many have asked whenever they heard of the word “Blackcabbit”….

Previously, I wanted a nickname for myself and a brand identity for my website (no longer in use). One that is easy to remember and pronounce since I was frequently asked to repeat my name every time I meet someone new. And in case you are wondering, Dionnie is pronounced as D-Yon-Ni (ディオンニ).

I was born in the year of a rabbit, have two pet cats and possessed certain cat’s traits. And since Cabbit is a fictional hybrid between a rabbit and a cat, I find it to be a suitable name. Hence, I throw in my favorite color and Presto! Blackcabbit it is!

    Hi Dionnie,

    Found your blog when I googled to search for craft stores in Japan and love it! Thank you so much for the wonderful posts with lots of photos and details. I am going to visit Tokyo this March and want to buy the tools and materials to make fabric flowers, aka ‘art flower’ in Japan. In my previous trip I asked the staff at Yuzawaya and was told that the maker of such tools is Sansei but she didn’t know where they sell it. Do you have any ideas that where can I find such craft materials in Tokyo?
    Thank you very much!

    I’m studying Japanese and right now I’m writing a final essay about Japanese rituals from life to marriage. Your description of obi-iwai, oshichiya etc. really helped me a lot. Thank you for that. And I have a request as well. Could I use your photos in my essay? It won’t be published, it’s just used to demonstrate how the rituals in Japan of today.
    Thank you once again and good luck to you and your familly.
