Omiyage for Me

Omiyage is a wonderful tradition in Japan.  One expects gifts on birthday and certain holidays, but omiyage gifts are surprises.  They are unexpected and undeserved.  Someone else goes on a trip and you get a gift when they return.

My neighbor went to a wedding party in Kyoto and brought me back these beautiful post cards and Japanese papers.
