Kitka in Japan


You remember my post from last week about the Nendo Globe … well yesterday I visited Kitka (one of my new favorite blogs) and there it was standing on Juli and John's table…. I am so jealous…and not only because of the globe … they went to Japan and brought back many gorgeous objects …


But Juli and John didn't leave us empty-handed… they are sharing with us what I believe is the best tour/report about Japan that I have seen online in a long time, truly eye-candy and a big inspiration for all Japan-lovers…enjoy!


Juli and John also run the shop Mjölk in Toronto specializing in Scandinavian designs…including the beautiful tea towels from Kauniste from Finland. Unfortunately no webshop, but the online gallery is again a feast for the eye…

    Hello! Thanks so much for mentioning us!

    Not sure if John mentioned it in the post but he picked up the globe from Cibone in Tokyo. When we were at the cash register John wanted to double check to make sure it was the Nendo globe, since the box didn’t say anything and they said it wasn’t! Total language barrier! Good thing John has a keen eye…

    Oh, I just love those Nendo globes.
    I hope it’ll soon glow on my desk.

    That’s awesome. I love it when you can travel and pick up things in other countries that you would still love to buy at home. We just got back from India, and as much as I bought, I think we could have gotten more.

    The mix of the traditional and the unforeseen items on the table suggest no less than eccentrism. But it’s nice to look at, so all’s good.
