Decorating With Bunnies
Well, I said I was going to start decorating with fewer birds and more bunnies and I meant it! This is an idea that could go horribly wrong and have my entire apartment looking like a nursery, but I'm finding there are lots of not-too-cutesy options out there. Like these chopstick holders I found in Kasama.
I'm not a big collector of anything, but chopstick holders (sorry I forgot the Japanese word for them) are irresistible. For starters they're cheap. They also come in all sorts of designs. These bunnies are by far my favorite in my collection.
You won't have a hard time finding these things in Tokyo. Well, maybe not these exact ones, but Oriental Bazaar in Harajuku has a vast assortment. I love Oriental Bazaar because it's kind of like one stop shopping for all your Japanese souvenirs. They even have a good selection of reasonably priced antique furniture. Room+J Design (#9 on the Daikanyama shopping guide) also has some very cool original designs.
