At the beginning of this month, Japan Week was in full effect in New York. At this event, Japanese culture, cuisine, and tourism is promoted heavily and the program puts a spotlight on unique features of Japanese culture from the last 100 years to the present. Since my father is from Japan and I am part Japanese, I’m always so interested in these types of events that I get to learn more about my heritage and where I came from.
One exhibitor stuck out more than others. Takumi displayed several items such as hand-crafted glass, metal and wood, beautiful fabrics, and other works of artistry to introduce Japanese traditions, techniques, designs, flavors, local qualities and other characteristics unique to Japan.
Aren’t these awesome? I wish I could have taken all of the products home with me. I did a little research about Takumi and found more products on their site that I fell in love with.
Aren’t these Teapots to die for? I want one in every single color.
These wooden USBs would make a perfect addition to my collection. Not only do they have wooden USBs but also wooden keyboards, card readers and iPhone 5 cases.
I could add hundreds of products that I love but those were a few that really stuck out to me. If you want to see more products, stop by Takumi’s site or Facebook page. I look forward to Japan Week next year in NY, I highly recommend looking into going in 2015 to learn more about the Japanese culture.
