FREE Japanese style gift-wrapping!

In Japan the presentation of your gift is almost as important as the gift itself so in true Japanese style we can offer you a FREE gift-wrapping service! We wrap your gifts using a special Japanese textured paper to which we then affix either a small origami crane bird (which represents love and peace in Japan) or a mizuhiki (coloured wire) motif.

If you would like your order gift-wrapped please remember to select the Gift-Wrapping option from the drop down box on the product page when placing your order, if you do not select this option we will assume that you do not require gift-wrapping.
