These Fluffy Bunny Pouches Are The Cutest Way To Carry Your Goods Around

While Japanese online shop Felissimo’s YOU+MORE! series (a play on the pronunciation of “humor” in Japanese) tends to focus on the infinite adorableness of cats and Shiba Inu, they often mix things up with bunny-themed goods. Bunny bento box wrappings and bunny bottle towels are good examples of their love for rabbits, but maybe their gigantic French Lop bunny cuddle bunny is their biggest show of affection for our floppy-eared friends. Now they’re upping their game with accessory pouches that look and feel like fluffy bunnies!

Gorgeous Cat Modeling Cute Japanese Schoolgirl Uniform Collar Is Too Cool For School

It’s not uncommon to see dogs in Japan wearing pet-sweaters to brave the colder seasons (and sometimes chilly indoors), but lately we’ve seen some cats sporting some rather inventive feline fashion. In the past year, there’s been a cat cafe in Saitama with a staff of kitties who cosplay, along with a cat who plays dress-up to teach Instagram followers about Japanese culture. Sometimes, however, these cat clothes aim for a nice balance of both cuteness and practicality, as ween with the recent kitty scarf.

Shiba Inu Smartphone Pouches Let You Simulate Rubbing A Doggy Belly On Your Phone

Update: They are now in stock at Felissimo’s international site.

Get A Thunderbolt Of Battery Life From This Pikachu Butt Plug Phone Charger

It’s not uncommon for goods from the Pokemon franchise make us raise our eyebrows, as seen with the enormous Snorlax pillow cushion that nearly consumed Japanese homes, but the item in question this time offers a little more utility than sleeping on top of the laziest creature in the Pokemon universe. However, that utility comes along with a jarring aesthetic in the form of a Portable USB phone charger in the shape of Pikachu–one that requires you plug the USB cable directly into the flagship Pokemon’s butt!

French Jewelry Brand Creates Japan-Inspired Collection Featuring Retro-Modern Designs

During the late-19th century, ukiyo-e, porcelain, fans, and other forms of Japanese fine art became strong sources of inspiration for many Western artists. The European craze for Japanese art became so great that the word “Japonism” was coined in 1872 to describe the phenomenon, and has since been used to explain the influence of Japanese art on Western art culture. Now, two centuries later, the usage of the word “Neo Japonism” has been on the rise. Neo Japonism refers to a revival of Western interest in Japanese art, which has prompted many artists to turn to Japanese art culture for inspiration when producing modern works and designs.

Impressive Japanese Fake Food Samples Turned Into Headgear And Other Accesories

If you’ve been to Japan, you may have had the pleasure of seeing the Japanese food sample displays outside of major restaurants.

Here’s an example if you’ve never seen one. @SUCAさん(@asue0102)が投稿した写真 – 2015 11月 25 1:28午前 PST Some look so similar to the actual thing that it would easy to accidentally take a bite out of one of them.

Wear The Weapon Of The Samurai Around Your Neck With Authentic Katana Jewelry

Although katana, the revered Japanese swords of samurai, have come a bit into style lately, and we’ve even seen the weapons of feudal Japan turned into fashion accessories before, we imagine some people would be a little hesitant to wearing a katana around their neck.

Traditional Japanese Hairpins Modeled After The Weapons Of Feudal Japan

Kanzashi (簪) are ornate hairpins used to add an elegant touch to traditional Japanese hairstyles. While its humble origins as a single rod were thought of as a mean to also ward off evil spirits, kanzashi have become more and more gaudy and and imaginative as hairstyles have progressed. They are commonly seen being used by geisha and brides, but have experienced somewhat of a boom in modern fashion thanks to a variety of new styles. One such style draws on rumors (typically seen in Samurai film lore) that kanzashi were sometimes used to conceal weapons as a means of self-defense, as Japanese online retailer Wargo is introducing hairpins modeled…
