Everything I Bought In Japan

Annie Pancake // Everything I Bought From Japan  

Ha! You didn't think the Japan posts were over did you?? Well, they're not! There are still a few more things I want to show you. I realised that in my excitement, about two days after I got home from Japan, I took a load of photos of everything I bought, then promptly forgot to blog it. So, you lucky people, here they are.

First up: homeware. As I mentioned in my Kamakura post, there was an incredible little bow/pot/chopstick shop, which is where I bought two of the plates, and another one in Nakano where I bought the chopsticks, lighter blue plate and bowls. I also picked up this lovely bento box for uni, and that cool triangular thing is an Onigiri Press, which is how people make those little rice balls for their lunch.

Next stationary, I won't go overboard with the explanations seeing as I did a post especially about the stationary I bought in Japan, but I did forget a few things - namely the Totoro Origami squares (which I have yet to think of a use for - have zero origami talent) and THESE NOVELTY ERASERS from the 100yen shop (like a 99p store).

Next Up: Sweeties. Obvs I bought way more than in the picture, but for the sake of a pretty photo...

I got a load of Matcha flavoured stuff (mainly to give to people as I don't even like it - but it's a flavour that is mostly independent to Japan) and aside from that I just tried to pick up the pinkest prettiest looking stuff. I also grabbed a bag of Konpeito, which have a pretty cool history.

Finally, what I saved most of my pennies for: I'm not really a teddy/cuddly toy kinda gal, I kind of find them to be a bit too much clutter, but I knew that I wanted to get the biggest plushy Totoro I could get my hands on! I just knew he would make a cute addition all snuggled up on my bed. I got him at the Ghibli museum, so I knew he was a legit piece of merchandise, and then I couldn't resist getting his little white companion Chibi-Totoro.
