Where you get the coolest Japan’s souvenir? Kabukiya
I found the coolest souvenir shop at underground shopping mall, Tokyo Station in Tokyo. It was very surprising me because I thought I have to go to Kabukiza that we see Kabuki performance in Ginza if I want to get the unique Japanese souvenirs.
You are lucky if you transfer trains at Tokyo Station, because you don’t miss your time to move to Ginza. While you wait trains or shinkansen, you’ll enjoy looking around the Kabuki souvenir shop. I think Kabuki goods are the best of Japan’s souvenir.
I saw tourists were interested in them at souvenir shop many times, and my host family and people who live in abroad were very happy when they received Kabuki goods. It’ll awesome souvenir for you or your family.
Recommend some cool Nippon traditional souvenirs, Tokyo Station
I show you some cool and unique things as Tokyo souvenirs at underground shopping mall, Tokyo Character street in Tokyo Station. First, Kabuki beauty masks make your friends or family fun while you put it on face. Why don’t you pretend Kabuki actor while you put it?
It’s moist and cool, so your skin will be better condition than now. I bought “ The Edo period Art Beauty Mask” and paid 324 yen. I used it once because it’s not recycled.
Second, you can use them at meal time, if you get bowls and mugs. We can’t get bowls or mugs that Kabuki style are printed anywhere in Japan.
Next, lanterns are made of paper is also unique and specialty as Tokyo souvenir. Kanji, Kabuki actor’s impressive face and famous thing in Japan are printed on them. Finally, you can buy cheap and useful things there.
For example, pens, towels, fridge magnet, chopsticks and so on. While I stay at this shop, I saw some foreign tourists who are excited to look at products. Most of the products in the shop aren’t big and heavy, so they don’t take much space in your suitcase. You don’t care to carry them, hooray!
What’s Kabuki, Japanese traditional performance
Kabuki is a Japanese traditional performance. It’s acting for 400 years. This performance consists of acting, dancing and music.
Men act on a stage, because women don’t allow to act there. So female roles are acted by actors. You’ll enjoy the background music with Japanese traditional instruments.
Some of popular things are the actor’s make up, quite unique wigs and action. Audience are attracted with them. I’ll write about Kabuki and Kabukiza that actor’s performance at another article.
Have fun and get your favorite unique souvenir in Tokyo!
