5 - Interior decoration


Whether you want to transform your interior or simply add a Japanese touch, the choice is vast. A few zabuton (large cushion on which you sit on the floor) placed on the floor; on the wall, a print or a kakemono (painting or calligraphy on a roll of silk or paper); a Japanese lamp or lampshade for subdued light: Japan is coming to your home.


6 - Textiles


Silks, cottons, embroidery : a whole world of beauty and softness that can be found in Japanese pouches, noren ( short curtain), Furoshiki (piece of fabric used for wrapping) or of course, clothes.

To relax at home, nothing better than putting on a cotton yukata or jinbei.
