Afternoon Tea is one of the Kawaii shops in Tokyo. It is known for delicately colored, subtly feminine styles— and if that is what you are looking for then you’ll find it here! But today, my top picks consist of Kawaii items that will literally have your friends saying “Where did you get that?”. Adorable, convenient, ingenious items that you need to get in the cart 5 minutes ago already!
1. Delicate Flower iPhone case for 6s/6/7/8
The kawaii and unique iPhone cases are found in Japan! This particular design is one of my favorites. With delicate pink or blue flowers, hand strap, magnetic clasp and space for your debit and ID cards, it’s the only thing you need for a night out!
2. Kawaii Accessory Box
This is one of those kawaii items that make you think that Japanese designers truly have thought of everything! I don’t know how many times I have travelled and had to wrap my necklaces around an random piece of cardboard and put them in a plastic bag! No more! This adorable lemon themed accessory box is already on it’s way to my mailbox. It comes with an extra pouch for extra items (I’m thinking earrings are going here) and snaps and hooks to secure in necklaces or watches. And do check out the various items in this “Lemon” Series.
3. Compact Hot Plate (with “takoyaki” plate)
Have you every heard of “Takoyaki”. Literally, it means “octopus balls” which are a famous dish in Japan made with a batter, chunks of octopus and lots of savory toppings. If that sounds good to you, how about testing out your cooking skills with this Compact Hot Plate? If that isn’t your thing, there are a ton of recipes out there using the special dish this hot plate comes with. How do Nutella and banana filled cake pops sound? Be the first to set a new cooking trend by serving some at your next get together!! Available in at least three different colors and designs.
4. 3 Tiered Self-Contained Bento Box
This adorable 3 tiered/colored Bento Box is so darling it’ll inspire you to go on an adventure as soon as it’s in your hands. There are four equal squares on the bottom level (inside the larger square) that are self contained, removable and perfect for fruit and other small items. The middle and top tiers have a horizontal/diagonal dividers that great for sandwiches or salads OR can be removed to create room for larger portions. This bento box has the recipe for a perfect weekend written right on the side: GO FOR A PICNIC!
5. Lacy Collapsible Cup/Toothbrush Case
This oh-so-girly lace covered bag is more than just a kawaii pouch! Complete with a mesh backing to let the moisture out, a cup that collapses in on itself (to take up barely any room) and a dainty clear toothbrush with hygiene cap, this little case is perfect when you’re on the go! How convenient is this?
Afternoon Tea was always one of my favorite kawaii shop when I lived in Japan. I used to miss shopping there for my girlfriends (and for myself), because I always found the perfect gifts. Since I found Buyee, I’ve been able to bring a little of that Tokyo magic back into my life. Whether you are looking for kawaii items, an accessory or a novelty item or a gift- there’s a good chance they carry exactly what you want! There were a lot more things I wanted to add to my list today! Check out the entire line of Afternoon tea items and order your favorite kawaii item today!
