As promised, here is a roundup of some of the goodies procured during our latest trip to Tokyo.
Although we own some, we picked up another pair of pig mugs designed by Kenjiro Sano. Not only do they make great gifts, they are also responsible for one of my favorite quotes: “it’s one of those things that’s not really funny but to Japanese people it’s f*ing hilarious.”
Our last stop was Afternoon Tea, where we picked up some cute ceramics for the kiddies, who are finally graduating from the indestructible IKEA plates. I immediately fell in love with the egg (tamago) pasta plates, as well as those cereal bowls.
How we managed to carry all this back without breaking anything is still a mystery to me.
