Although Father’s Day was thought to be invented in the United States by Sonora Smart Dodd in admiration for her father, it is celebrated in Japan much in the same way that it is all around the world.
Father’s Day is a day where people of all nationalities come together and give thanks to their fathers and fatherly figures. It is celebrated on the third Sunday of June in most countries which this year falls on the 19th.
If you’re dad likes a gift with a bit of difference, The Japanese Shop has a unique collection of unusual Father’s Day gifts for you to choose from. Whether you are looking for something cool and stylish or quirky and original, all of our gift ideas have a touch of oriental flavour that make them all original.
If your dad enjoys a cup of tea, serve him one in a traditional Takokarakusa Mug this Father’s day. The stylish piece of ceramic stoneware is made in Japan and comes exclusively in a smart presentation box.
For dads who appreciate a good piece of art, our Kosho Dream Hemp Scroll is beautifully hand painted on hemp by artist Kosho Ogawa, and will add a touch of Japanese flair to any room. If on the other hand your dad is more of a trendsetter, our Navy Cotton Long Life and Happiness Kimono is the perfect choice for any stylish gentlemen to relax around the home in, or take with on his next holiday. It is fully lined and made from soft printed cotton with a matching belt.
Our Samurai Kokeshi Doll is another fantastic Japanese gift option for Father’s Day. The bright colour of the wooden doll gives it a contemporary feel, and it is also known to be symbol of a token of love. Each doll is given a unique name by its craftsman, making each Kokeshi doll truly a one of a kind gift to give.
At the Japanese Shop we offer a free gift wrapping for all of our traditional Japanese products. To view these Father’s Day gifts and more, visit us in store or online at www.thejapaneseshop.co.uk.
