Stationery - Kawaii Halloween



Halloween is right around the corner! The word for “cute” in Japanese is kawaii, as you probably already know. But did you know the word for “scary” is kowai. These words look and sound similar, and in Japan sometimes the line between cute and scary can get blurred. We hope this month’s pack of stationery inspires you to enjoy your own mix of cute and scary this Halloween season.

10 items, including 3 writing utensils.


  1. Hana-Obake Letter Set
  2. Hana-Obake Flat Case
  3. Halloween Washi Tape
  4. Yokai Block Memo Pad
  5. Obake Fusen
  6. Black Cat - Sarasa Clip
  7. Rushon Petite Pen
  8. Craft Fabric Pen
  9. Pastel Catr Eraser
  10. Jihanky Stickers

Ramen - Southern Japan



We are taking a trip down to Kyushu, so invite your friends and sample the tastes of Southern Japan together! Try 3 varieties of Tonkotsu Ramen, the famous specialty of Fukuoka. Then enjoy 2 bowls of Chanpon, a regional noodle dish loaded with veggies from Nagasaki. Chanpon means mixing various things at once, and was a dish originally served at Chinese restaurants in the area. In Japan, we say “Autumn fills our bellies”. Try these delicious noodles and fill yours up.

7 bowls of authentic noodles direct from Japan.


  1. CupStar Tonkotsu Ramen
  2. Maru-uma Tonkotsu Ramen
  3. Hyoubanya Koku Tonkotsu
  4. Men Dining Chanpon
  5. Seimen Yasai Chanpon
  6. Sugomen Negi Miso Ramen
  7. Okonomiyaki Sauce Yakisoba


Overall, it was an adventure going through all the noodles. 7 ramen was perfect for the month...ZenPop was a great way to discover some new styles and brands. Now, I’m ready for my Japan trip, which is just a few days away. - Foodology
