The new collection is called HAPPY JUDY YEAR and the lineup includes cups, plates, stuffed toys among with New Year’s items such as shimekari ornaments and stuffed Daruma dolls, with the wish that the year will be a year of leaps and bounds, just as Judy believes in her dreams.

I started to like Japan because of the anime, music and doramas, but after my first trip to the country I found what I love the most: traveling around, the culture and history. I have travelled a lot in Japan, but I still have many places to discover that I want to share with you🙋🏼‍♀️ Let’s discover Japan together!


Also, as a foreigner living in Japan for over 6 years I understand what kind of things are difficult when you move here and I want to help other people in the same situation that I have in the past.
