10 J-Goods for the Holidays

It is the holiday season! I had a good browse in our brand new JAPANESE STREETS store to look for some cool goods from Japan for you to give, receive, or buy for yourself (why wait?).

I first fell in love with Mori Chack’s Gloomy Bear many years ago. This feisty little bear is still going strong. Find in store.

Nintendo’s new Wii Music game is a great present for both amateur and accomplished musicians. Play more than 60 different instruments, jam or create your own virtual music video. Perfect for music lovers! Find in store.

This incredibly slim (less than an inch!) 8.1-megapixel digital camera let’s you take sharp image for prints as large as 16 × 20 inches (40 × 50 cm). It looks pretty cool, too. Find in store.

4. Geta Sandals

Geta Sandals

Get yourself ready for the Summer, or wear them inside. Geta sandals don’t only look good with kimono or yukata, they are great with jeans, shorts, skirts and dresses as well! There are geta for men, too. Find in store.

5. Haori Jacket

Haori Jacket

The hip- or thigh-length haori jacket is worn by both men and women and, like geta, mixes well with Western clothing. This year look truly special on Christmas Day or New Year’s Eve! Find in store.

6. Domo-kun Products

Domo-Kun NHK Character

Ever since NHK introduced its square faced Domo-kun character, its has been extremely popular. This year he finally became a great hit in the US, too. Find in store.

7. Exclusive Japanese Swarovski Products

Swarovski Hello Kitty

Swarovski is extremely popular since the Princess Look hit the country. If you plan to impress someone, why not purchase an original Japanese Swarovski creation like this beautiful Hello Kitty Swarovski Rainbow Ring. It is sold only in Japan and Sanrio doesn’t ship internationally. But you can get it shipped anywhere in the world through our eBay store. Find in store.

8. Japanese Beauty Products

KOSÉ T'ESTIMO Japanese Cosmetics & Beauty Products

Japanese women spend more on skin care, cosmetics and other beauty products than women anywhere else in the world. No wonder Japanese cosmetic companies create such great products. Like, for example, this KOSÉ Sekkisei Herbal Esthetic Mask and Kanebo T’estimo Glitter Fluid Rouge. Find Japanese beauty products in store.

9. Japanese Travel Guide

Japanese Travel Guide

Help someone (maybe yourself?) prepare for a trip to Japan. Travel guides of Japan make wonderful gifts, and there are so many to choose from! Find in store.

Great picks! I love the Hello Kitty ring and the headphones. So much fun! Wish I had some fun money to buy the headphones with, they would be perfect for hoopdancing! :)
