Kawaii goods arrived from Japan

We got a HUGE delivery from Japan today with lots of cute goodies including stickers, memo pads, bento boxes, pencils, bags, rulers, pencil cases and many more. We were so excited, so we arranged all items on the office floor and took some pictures. It was really hard to get all items on one photo, so we decided to take a movie to show all items. Enjoy the pictures and video:

Day 3 in Japan – Part 3

After Kiddy Land, we decided to go to Shibuya for dinner. We arrived at Shibuya station and wanted to see the famous Hachiko statue first. Hachiko is a dog and the story became famous in Western countries because of the movie with Richard GereHachiko – A dog’s story“. It was great seeing the statue in person.

After that we went to the most famous crossway in Tokyo which is just HUGE! There are so many people crossing the street at once, it is just amazing to stand there in the middle of the crowd and watching them.

Shibuya has lots of restaurants, it was hard to choose one

many restaurants present their dishes in front of the restaurant, the dishes are made in plastic

to order those noodles, you need to choose your meal in front of the restaurant at the vending machine and pay right there. Then you go inside and get your order. Apparently Wentworth Miller from Prison Break visited this place before as his picture eating their noodles hang in the window display.

while looking for dinner we saw my favorite car, a white Lamborghini 🙂

After dinner, we had to go to LOFT, which I heard a lot of before and was nearby anyway. LOFT is a huge shop, total 7 floors, with lots and lots of stationery and anything else you can imagine related to office, school, hobby, toys, home and more. We took lots of pictures inside, have a look:

We are going to Japan!!!

We booked tickets for Tokyo, Japan today! We will be in Tokyo from 16th April till 19th April 2010. Alan, my husband, and I are going together and it’s our first trip to Japan. We do have some Japanese suppliers but we do all our business over the internet. Therefore, we never had to come to Japan to visit them in person. A few suppliers we know in person because they visited us in our office in Hong Kong, like for example our contact person for Kamio, Crux, Q-Lia and more. Our plan is to do some sightseeing, see the beautiful cherry blossom and eat lots of good food. We are big fans of sushi and eat a lot of it in Hong Kong. But of course, we also plan to check out lots of shops and products to see the latest trends in Japan and find new suppliers. I will definitely write a blog post about our trip including lots of pictures when we are back from our trip. I can’t wait to go!

Q-Lia Order arrived from Japan

Today, we got our new order delivered from Japan. We ordered lots of Q-Lia items including bags, flip flops, bento boxes, memo pads, stickers, chopsticks and notebooks. They are also super cute and so kawaii! My favorites are a Alice in Wonderland notebook, the blue bear bag and some capsule stickers with a pudding with faces on it. Super CUTE!!! I took a few pics of some of the items after we opened the boxes.

Visit from our Japanese Supplier

Today we had a visit from our supplier from Japan. He represents all the popular fancy stationery brands like Q-Lia, Kamio, Crux, Poolcool, Mindwave, Kutsuwa etc. from Japan. His responsibility is exporting these items overseas. We are working with him for just a short while, as I wrote about in an earlier blog post: New Fancy Japanese Stationery Supplier. He was visiting a trade fair here in Hong Kong and we set up a meeting so we could finally meet in person and discuss our future business collaboration. It went really well, he brought lots of new catalogs (he sends us new catalogs every 2 weeks from Japan) with the latest collections and some samples. We are going to place another order shortly as the Japanese stationery items sell really well. I can’t wait to get the new cute stationery items. It is always very exciting to open those parcels 😉

New Fancy Japanese Stationery Supplier

I was looking for a supplier for the popular fancy stationery brands from Japan for quite a while now. These brands are: Q-lia, Mind wave, Crux, Kamio, Coolpool, Cram Cream etc. I wanted to order directly from Japan to make sure that we get the best price possible and also the newest items as soon as they are available. It took me really a long time to finally find a direct business contact in Japan for these brands. They even have an office in Hong Kong to present the brands and I set up an appointment to check out their office, talk about how to work together and most importantly, see their products. So today, Alan and I went to their office, which is surprisingly just a 5min drive by taxi from our office, and met with the boss. She was a very nice lady and we talked for 2 hours about our future collaboration and she also gave us tons of catalogs with all the super cute stationery items inside. We also visited their warehouse and picked up quite a lot of items to put them quickly into our shop. We are going to order from them very often from now on because these cute, kawaii items are just the perfect match for our kawaii shop. And the quality is just amazing, no comparision to the China made items. If you have a business and are interested in wholesale prices, please contact us by email for the huge wholesale catalog. The items can be shipped directly from Japan to your company.
