Good afternoon, 4 Shugi Bukoro cards arrived today and they are lovely. I discovered these on a recent trip to Japan and although I brought 3 home with me I decided I should have filled a suitcase with them I like them so much !!!! No doubt I will be putting in another order in the near future, many thanks and best wishes.


Beautiful - as it always is, I look forward to shopping with you again soon!


These (Red Kotobuki Shugi Bukuro) were beautifully made & perfect for giving the traditional money gift at my son's marriage in Utsunomiya, Japan were he had a traditional Japanese ceremony in Nikko. I wanted to present the gift correctly as my daughter in law is Japanese & I was meeting her & her family for the first time when I went to Japan for the wedding. They would be excellent for something different when giving money instead of a gift at any kind of wedding as there is a blank card if you want to write a message of your own in English. I used the ready printed Japanese message card as it was a Japanese Ceremony.

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.
