Indulge yourself with handcrafted souvenirs

Rather than being scorned, craftsmanship is highly respected. Regarded as a "living national treasure", some masters, using timeless techniques, transform common objects into exceptional creations. From cool trinkets acquired at the 100 Yen shop to high-priced ceramics, there's something for everyone.

A print, a collector's item, a gourmet gift, a gadget, some manga, the latest high-tech product, or a jazz CD not found in Europe are sure to delight fans of Japanese culture.
