Hi.
Is it easy for you to decide what to buy as souvenirs when you are on trip in Japan?

If you are familiar with Japan, or have visited Japan and have looked around in souvenir shops, it might not be so difficult.

If you are quite new to Japan, do you have any idea about what is a popular souvenir that makes your family and friend become happy?

 

Today, I’m going to give you some information on souvenirs which are popular among tourists from other countries.

 

For those who would like to escape from having trouble to find a good souvenir, let’s check it and save yourself that trouble!

If you have a friend who are greatly interested in fashion, it can be an ideal souvenir.

A pair of socks with such a big picture rarely sells outside Japan.

It has already been one of the most popular souvenir among non-Japanese tourists.

A key holder shaped a famous Japanese food, such as, sushi, tempura, gathers the greatest popularity as a souvenir.

Your friends and family will be surprised how elaborately a food sample is made!

It’s what transforms yourself into a kabuki actor.

It’s especially popular among young women.

The face pack is gathering more popularity because it was chosen as an official souvenir in the time of G7 Ise-Shima Summit!

 

 

 

(4) A lunch box

In fact, a lunch box is one of the souvenirs that people become happy to be presented.

If you choose one which keeps foods in it fresh, or one with popular characters, everyone who have one will be happy!

 

 

 

(5) Ear pick

Maybe there is no country, except Japan, in which ear picks have prevailed among people.

It’s reusable and eco-friendly, in addition, some look very fashionable.

If you have some friends who really love Japan, they will be happy to have one as a souvenir.

 

 

 

(6) Calligraphy-brush-style felt pen

 

Refer to the site: https://www.buzzfeed.com/kylaryan/japanese-omiyage?utm_term=.nqxPyL3M4#.fuZ1J8WPA

 

It’s Fude-pen (筆ペン) in Japanese, and you can write letters as if you do calligraphy.

It must be difficult to find one in other countries, even if there are several calligraphy schools in some countries.

 

 

 

(7) Kendama

It’s a traditional toy.

You put a ball with a band on each part of the body.

Not only adults but also kids can play with it, thus everyone will be happy when he or she has it.

 

 

 

(8) Geta / wooden clogs

It’s a traditional footwear, made with wood.

Especially in summer, there is a large variety of wooden clogs in clothing stores and some big supermarkets (because geta and yukata, a kind of kimono for summer, in most cases, sell together).

For those who love fashion, it may be an ideal souvenir of Japan.

 

 

 

(9) Wind chime

It has already been popular in other countries, and some of you know it.

For a souvenir, how about choosing one with a picture which associates Japan, when your friends and family see it.

 

 

 

(10) Name stamp

Don’t you think it’s nice that you have a stamp on which your name written in Kanji, Chinese character, is curved?

A stamp that a name is curved on is quite rare, thus people who receive it will be surprised and happy!

How was it?
