Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

I hope you’ve been enjoying the Back To School Week giveaways so far! Here’s another one for you.

For fans of cute-kawaii products from Japan, From Japan With Love is a must-see website. Each item is hand-selected by Sofia, the owner, as if she were shopping for a friend. The site lists items ranging from plushies to stationery to bath and body items, and of course a selection of very cute bento boxes and kitchen items.

This is the item that For Japan For Love is going to send to one lucky winner, a girly pink box appropriately named The Pleasure Of Lunch Time.

This is a two-tier box, with a total capacity of 630ml. The lid closes with large, easy to handle clips that holds both tiers securely, and is adorned with the illustration of a dog going for a walk with his bento!

Doraemon still the cutest..

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

The Sanrio Shinkasen trains! They remind me of my visit to Kobe 7 years ago, where I met my cousin's sons for the first time. They were absolutely besotted with the trains.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

I think my favourite character is Jiji from Kiki's Delivery service.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Chibi Maruko Chan.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

I've always been fascinated with Keroppi. :) But sometimes I get a kick out of Domo-Kun.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Okay, I don't really know any and I know these don't really count, but oh well. I love classic peter rabbit : )

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

I know it's a bit boring but my favorite japanese character is Hello Kitty.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Our top favorite cute Japanese characters are Totoro, the Soot Sprites and the Cat Bus! Can you tell we love My Neighbor Totoro and all the Miyazaki movies? This bento box you're giving away is also cute!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

I love all Studio Ghibli characters, but most especially Calcifer!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Pikachu is soooooo cute!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

I definetely love ultraman.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

my favourite is Tsuruya only in her Nyorōn Churuya-san form though.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

My favorite character is domo! He is in my bentos and on my coffee cup baring his sharp teeth to the world!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Totoro, hands down.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Doraemon

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Domo Kun is my favorite too!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

As a game and music junkie my favorite character is Genesis. Not only is he based off of the musician "Gackt" but hes in final fantasy. One of my all time favorites!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Not sure if I'll make it in time, I haven't had time to work out the time difference! Anyway, Totoro is defintely our favourite Japanese character, we were so excited to see him make an appearance in Toy Story 3. Neko-bus would be a close second.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

My ultimate favorite would be Kotoko from Chobits by Clamp. i just love her stock/slightly angry look!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

I think this is an easy one!

I think Domo Kun is the cutest of all. But as a kid, and although he's more on the 'hot' side than the 'cute' side, I was totally in love with Albator. Well, that's his name in french, I think it's something like Captain Havelock in english. That's him : http://www.cine-collector.com/catalog/images/albator84595959.jpg

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

I know that you said you expect a lot of Hello Kitties but really I have been obsessed with Hello Kitty since I was a little girl. Right now in my line of vision is my Hello Kitty cup and a Hello Kitty doll from my niece for my birthday. She is 3 and that is one thing that we share... a love for Hello Kitty!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

We are fans of Hello Kitty (four little girls, so that is an obviouse one, right?) My one daughter has found a panda she loves, but we've only seen once. Pitari Panda might be it's name??? Living in the middle of an agricultural doesn't lend itself to much exposure, unfortunately.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

My favourite is Badtz-Maru!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Doraemon!!! I grew up watching Doraemon and have always wanted to have one at home ;D

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Of course, I love anything Sanrio (Pandapple and Deerylou!) but right now I'm obsessed with... Totoro! And Tomato-chan is so cuteeee! OK. I've got to stop. Kisses.
