A selection of seasonal sakura goods from 100 yen stores

I’ve bought some spring stuff to cheer up before the real spring comes! I don’t have a habit to splurge on seasonal decorations (too often), especially the ones that will have have to be taken off soon. So, finding nice sakura goods at various 100 yen shops helps to keep the cost-value balance. Here is a list of what I’ve got this year.

A notebook. I don’t really know how will I use it, but obviously a notebook with cute Japanese bush warblers and cherry blossoms is worth buying! On second thought, someone studying Japanese language always needs a lot of stationery.

Paper cups and plates are absolutely necessary sakura goods for cherry blossom viewing. Japanese people are very smart and creative when it comes to beautiful things, so why not make the most out of this season? Personally I don’t like sitting on the ground, even under the cherry blossom trees, so this is a perfect compromise. Check out my new small bowl with tender cherry blossom petals as well.Sakura platesGel stickers for glass or mirror. I like to buy gel stickers, these sakura goods are easy to stick on and to peel off afterwards. The quality is not as high as the ones you can find at a stationary shop, but nevertheless it’s a good buy.

A pair of Hina Dolls. I thought that only families with little girls can have special dolls for Hina Matsuri. As it turned out, I was wrong. Many women do buy and arrange them just because they like their looks. For example, my mother-in-law ordered a rather expensive pair of Hina dolls from KEIO, her favorite department store.Kokeshi Hina DollsMy husband laughed at my efforts with sakura goods as usual. Sometimes I just don’t know who is the Japanese in our family.
