It was a real pleasure shopping some traditional artcrafted "furin" at Nihon Ichiban. They have a very good selection of japanese gifts. Nicolas, the owner, also provided very interesting information about them and also on the visits. Totally recommended.

I agree with most of what Galevi said. I found real Japanese craft for my husband and two sons. A rose wood bark tea container, a lacquered coin purse and an Odawarra wind bell. All of the products carefully wrapped, as per Japanese custom, and the owner is extremely helpful and friendly, ready with suggestions on where to go and what to eat. He was right about the tax free items as well. I had them in my suitcase and nobody asked to see them. All the best.
