UGUISU



Gorgeous Japanese stuff,

it makes me daydreaming about visiting this beautiful country...











The most impressive,
is actually the amazing Japanese book and magazine collection.















There also is this wonderful Uguisu blog.


Is there anyone who ever visited Japan?
I'd love to hear your stories...

I've been to Japan, they really do have just the most gorgeous lovely THINGSSSS... I went pretty nuts! All kinds of functional everyday objects they seem to make as beautiful as they can possibly be, right down to things like teabags, and tape as you have discovered!

I'm living in Japan for 2 years. I love foods, girlish style of women, small cars, language, daily stillness, kind people, flower shops, little cafes, masking tapes. I think here is detail lovers' country. Unfortunately I have only 2 months more and I will miss.

hello mila,

i want to say your blog is very beautiful.
i found it through my sister a few years ago.

she and i went to japan last month.
it was a magical trip. there were so many interesting shops and spaces. in one cluttered shop i found rows and rows of small white tubes of toothpaste - the flavours were incredible! plum, and rosemary, and...i can't even remember. maybe 20 different kinds. i like plain mint toothpaste, but i enjoyed looking through them.

i live in seoul, korea, and i think you might like the fashion and design here as well.

take care,
and thanks for the loveliness~

My friend and I were recently discussing about the prevalence of technology in our day to day lives. Reading this post makes me think back to that discussion we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory falls, the possibility of downloading our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I dream about almost every day.

Japan is a detail lover's delight, with lovely people, amazing culture and creative food. I've been lucky to visit during cherry blossom time, mid summer and fall and they're all my favorites! The movie "Lost in Translation' is an accurate taste of its fast/slow culture. Add Japan to your list of 'must visit' places.
