Japanese gifts and Souvenirs


Gifts differ not only in terms of cost and purpose, but also in style. In particular, when talking about the style of the gift, refers to his ethnic features. So, there are “Russian gifts, Souvenirs”: foreigners often receive from us a gift of a matryoshka doll, samovar, Pavlovo Posad shawl, the pot of caviare, model Russian log hut and the like.

Each nation has its own cultural traditions, so the Souvenirs brought from the country, have their peculiarities, which most of us can easily define their ethnicity. Hookah brought from one of the Arab countries, the model of the pyramid – from Egypt, miniature Eiffel tower – from France, bagpipes – from Scotland, a huge beer mug – most likely from Germany. To continue to infinity.

The culture of other countries attracted many of us, it’s so interesting – to learn something new about unfamiliar people and their customs.
