I’ve been thinking I should start a new Tumblr called ‘things I found while tidying up’. This is the latest thing I found, which I meant to scan in almost a year ago!
It’s a little leaflet I picked up at Loft in Tokyo, showing just a small selection of the bunny-themed New Year designs on offer. New Year is a huge thing in Japan – you basically have to send postcards to everyone you have ever met. You can click through to see it bigger on Flickr.
It may also give you some idea of just how impossible it is to shop in Japan – faced with all these cards and many many more, plus matching rubber stamps and stickers, how can you possibly choose what to buy? It was only the discovery of this leaflet that allowed me to leave the shop without spending all my money.
If I had to choose, these would be my favourites – carrot rocket!
