Aoshii has this beautiful handmade jewelry. I fell completely for a beautiful set of purple crane earrings. The girl who makes these told me the store of how these paper cranebirds came to “life”, and to be so popular. Apparently many years ago during the war ,and bombing of Hiroshima, a little girl got sick. She wanted to get better so she started folding paper cranes in the hope of reaching a thousand so she could have her wish granted; Which was to live. But she only reached 644 and tragically died. Now I do not know if any of this is true or not, its a beautifully tragic little story none-the-less.


An ancient Japanese legend…


I bought some similar earrings in purple

I will definitely get another pair next time I am back! They’re so lovely.

I really liked the vegetable signs. Wouldn’t they be cute in a kitchen?

The food stalls at the market smelled, and looked amazing. I wish I could have tried all of them. There were soooo many to choose from. Probably around fifty. Next time, Leah. Next time.
