Gifts for Japan

Jump to last reply

I posted this question at the bottom of the Cherry Blossoms weather report, but then it struck me that that was not a good idea and that I should post a new topic since it is a complete different question.

I am heading for Japan for my first visit on March 30 through April 12. (Tokyo, Miyajima/Hiroshima, Himeji, Kyoto, Tokyo) looks like I'm hitting the Cherry Blossoms at the perfect time (as of today). (I have been to Tokyo on a 36 hour layover, but I don't consider that as a "visit" )

I am an avid photographer as some of you know. I have arranged for local photographers to work with as well as models (standard female models and Maiko/Geiko in Kyoto). I have heard that small gifts are a nice way to connect to those you meet and spend time with. I am bringing books of my photography for the photographers. I was wondering if those of you who have been to Japan could give me some ideas on kinds of small gifts that are appreciated by Japanese.

About my trip:
I am flying ANA, JFK-NRT. Amazingly, I was able to get a first class seat ("first square" suite seat) for miles. What was funny is that all business class miles seats were taken--that's the only reason I looked at first and was pretty happy. So, I'm looking forward to the flight : ). I think it will be a fun trip. I'm looking forward to capturing some great images. I'll post them when I return.

Thanks in advance for your help!
