When I shop, I prefer to buy things made in Japan if possible. You can look on the label for 日本製．nihonsei
Nihon=Japan (of course)
Sometimes it’ll be in English, but not always so it is handy to know in Japanese.
Anyhoo…..I have recently been wanting a bit of a bag to stick in my purse. An eco bag. Is that Japanese or English? I think it is actually Japanese. But it’s a pretty good term. So I will adopt it and use it.
Okay. Where was I. I have been wanting an eco bag because I forget my regular grocery bag quite often (or actually, more likely, go grocery shopping when I didn’t plan to.)
I checked the 100 yen shop and they had some EXTREMELY ugly eco bags. I found some cuter ones for 1,000. But I found one that I loved on the internet from a blogger here in Japan. She blogs about sewing here and she obviously sews with love. This is her site.
I was excited when my package arrived! Cute stamps!
Cute eco bag!!!!!!!!!
So Japanese. I see a fukuwarai, hina dolls, kingyo, koi…………
I’ll pass as a native with this bag!
Okay, chocolate Easter eggs photos. From Ginza, Tokyo.
To the far right, there’s a chocolate bunny. It’s hard to make out.
The above photo is at Fujiya Sweet Shop. There’s a bit of Easter stuff in there. The pastel sweets.
Easter Basket! I couldn’t resist. I bought this. How adorable.
Despite Eastery snacks arriving in Japan, the typical Japanese kid doesn’t know what Easter is. I asked in a juku yesterday, and the kids were clueless.
