Hi,  I"ll be leaving for Japan in a few weeks.  Gee, I'm really scared since I've never traveled internationally.  I posted on the paper craft section about gifts to take, but then I saw this site.

What types of gifts would you suggest to take to Japan?  I'm thinking of some sort of paper craft, maybe small purses.  One person suggested cd's and handmade envelopes.

I'll be in Tokyo and Osaka.  There's so much to see and do.  I'll be in each location, 4 nights.  We might change to 5 nights in Tokyo.  We plan to go to Mt Fuji, Tokyo Disney, Sony and a smaller community that I can't think of right now.  One of my books said that students in this area will tour your around for free, so they can practice English.

I'll be looking for the crafting stores.  One concern is being able to bring items back home.  Is it feasible to ship items home?

thanks.  catdaddytn

Hey, one gift Japanese people love is food. whenever you go somewhere in Japan, you're supposed to bring back the "specialty" food from the area you went to for your coworkers and friends. You might try bringing a cookie or cake from America. I also think small purses, envelopes and CDs would go down very well.
Good luck and have fun on your trip!

I agree that food is good, but be careful of it melting!  Pictures and coins also seem to go over well.  Do not spend a lot on the gifts! It's the gesture that counts.  However, if you are staying at someone's house or someone will be doing a lot for you (showing you around, etc), you might want to bring something a bit nicer.
