Lately a lot of people have been asking me for tips to Tokyo. It seems like more and more people are going there, and while my first thought was that I wanted to keep Tokyo to myself, I of course know that’s impossible, and decided to send them on their way with my best tips. That is the reason for this blog after all.
But while you’re considering if your next trip should be to Tokyo, I can only recommend squeezing in a trip to Osaka too. It’s only about 4 hours on the Shinkansen, Japan’s bullet trains which is also one of the fastest trains in the world.
That’s where I found this amazing ceramics shop. If there’s one thing you have to bring home from Japan, it’s handmade ceramics. I love to collect it from all over the world, and mix and match it when I get home.
Here you’ll find ceramics made by different potters, and they also have small exhibitions of selected artists in the building next door. Besides shopping for cups and plates, you can also enjoy a cup of green tea in their café.
One of the things I love about Japan is that they take big pride in wrapping your new purchase nicely – as they did here, with a cute bow and a Wad-label neatly put on the paper bag.
What did I bring home? Have a closer look here. I could have bought it all though …
