When I first came to Japan I couldn't get over the amount of 'cute' things, I don't mean stickers or little pouches, I mean everything seems to be cute (well almost). After a while it becomes second nature to pick up a bag of apples with some cute character smiling at you. I was down at the shops the other day with time to mooch, so I snapped some pictures for you as I wandered around my favourite store 'Passport' which is basically cute overload, if it isn't cute, it doesn't get in the door....
|I LOVE this rice bowl with miso bowl hat, seriously cute.|
|This gadget is a lid for your tea cup and it holds the spoon for you too.|
|piggy humidfiers, the steam comes out of it's nose!|
|who wouldn't like cleaning if you used this? Actually, I have a ladybird duster lol.|
and to the supermarket we go....
|Anpanman tissue boxes|
|even the fabric softener is cute|
|king sponge, cleaning sponges that get the marks off everything - apparently.|
If your child decorates your walls with crayon, this is what you need to get it off, luckily I have never had to use it.
|tacoyaki sauce, takoyaki are chopped up bits of octopus in a fluffy batter balls.|
|and this chap, he lives in the rice box to keep the rice good,|
I'm not sure if it is to keep bugs out or to keep it dry, it says it is for tasty rice!
and that was just a tiny selection of cute!
