Give them thirty minutes and Y2600, and the staff of this tiny shop will produce a custom-made hanko seal for you, with your name and an illustration of a kitty cat, bunny rabbit or cartoon bear. There's a big selection of cute animals to choose from, along with portraits of historical figures and nature scenes. All the stamps have a built-in ink supply so there's no need for a separate inkpad, and you can choose from five different colors of ink, and six different colors for the hanko case.
This book will introduce you to more than twenty of Japan's favorite specialty foods that are less well known abroad, along with a guide to the best places in Tokyo to try them and expert tips on what to order. From our sister site Bento.com.
