As promised, here is a roundup of some of the goodies procured during our latest trip to Tokyo.

Our first stop was Watashi no Heya, a droolworthy shop I  have, well, drooled over in the past.

Next was FrancFranc, where we picked up this adorable coffee maker for 2. It’s come in handy as we try to adjust back to NY-time.

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.

Pictured above is the London motif but we also picked up the NY version.

How we managed to carry all this back without breaking anything is still a mystery to me.
