Here we are again with our monthly column all about shopping! For March, while this side of the world is celebrating Easter and in Japan cherry blossom just bloomed, we decided to dedicate this page to one of our favourite topics: food! But not any food: Japanese food. So, here is our selection of products from our partner shops and more.
In Italy, we called them “anti-stress” but now they are best known as squishies and lately they are all the rage among kawaii lovers and not only them. Probably it’s because of the adorable models from Japan, as cute as detailed. And obviously super squishy! Thanks to Modes4U we joined the squishy-mania as well, by choosing 4 of the many squishies available on the online store. Do you want to know how they look? Let’s find out!
There’s nothing better than receiving a nice package by mail, especially during Christmas time! If you follow us on Instagram and Twitter, you already know that a couple of weeks ago the postman delivered us a parcel sended by Blippo.com, one of the best online shop where to buy Japanese accessories and snacks, which we talked you about in the past. Blippo staff sended us some cute accessories. Let’s find out!
We have already talked about Kiki & Lala Cafe, the pop-up diner open until last July serving delicious dishes dedicated to Little Twin Stars. The Sanrio twins, however, were neither the first nor the last protagonists of such initiatives. Indeed, character cafes are multiplying in Tokyo!

Here is our usual selection of accessories for sale on our partner shop Modes4U that will transform your lunch (to eat at the park or at school/office) in a real kawaii party! And the food?
