Thank you so much I love the japanese gift wrap (Red Crane Japanese Gift Wrap) and red money envelope (Red Knot Japanese Shugi Bukuro)! They're perfect and beautiful.


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.
