A Slice of WASHI Heaven (picture heavy)


Earlier this month, Hubby took a business trip to Tokyo, Japan. Naturally, one of the first things that I asked of him (besides begging him to bring me along, which he refused :-(  ) was to bring some washi tape back for me. When he had a chance to take a break from his daily meetings, he took a trip to Tokyu Hands in Shinjuku. If you follow me on my Facebook page, you may have already seen the following picture. He took this with his phone camera while he was inside the store:


Oh, how I wished I was there! It was a Washi Tape Heaven! Here are some additional pictures that he sent:













I so wanted to be in that store! Since I couldn't be there in person, Hubby brought me a slice of the Washi heaven:


Oh, they look so pretty! Many are by the MT brand that we are familiar with but there are several that are not. Still they are really cute!


These Clouds crack me up and that Sushi tape is too much fun. It would go perfectly with the Lettering Delights Bento Box set!


The slim tape intrigued me. They weren't kidding when they said that these are slim. Each roll measures 6mm x 10m Only 6mm wide!


This set of transportation-themed tape is one of my favorites and I can't help but adore that roll of mountain scene.


Hubby also brought back this super wide roll of tape/wrap (120mm x 5m). I'm not sure what I would do with it yet but it sure looks very cool.


I was super impressed when he took out these washi tape dispensers. They are magnetic!



So that's my slice of washi heaven. Once I am done fondling, I will have to sit down and actually use some of them. Can't wait to play! :-)

  4. Hi! Envy worthy washi tapes and husband! May I ask, are the tapes cheaper in Japan? A friend is there, might ask her to buy me some if they're cheaper. Thank you!

  9. Those are so cute! My sister brought me a bunch back from Japan about a year ago but they weren't those cute designs. Still love 'em though! She probably didn't go to that store-they were probably in a completely different area.

  10. Very cool! I wasn't so sure about washi tape at first, got some of it at Target in the office supply aisle and then I started using it on my xmas presents this year. I made lots of boxes for homeade candies, toffee, & fudge and decorated the boxes with washi tape and then wrapped tape around the white handled paper bags that we bought to put all the gifties in. I am also using some tapes on my xmas cards as well! These tapes are making my mass-present-decorating-life much easier!!
