My husband and I just returned from a two week trip to Japan and while we were there I absorbed as much "kawaii" that I could possibly stand. Kawaii is Japanese for "cuteness" and it invades all aspects of Japanese life. While we were there, I saw adorable dog-shaped battery chargers, banana-shaped smiley face sponges and cute anime mascots for everything from cellphone offers to subway lines. Everywhere I looked I was surrounded by amazing, cute and awesome kawaii figures. Luckly, I can get my kawaii fix back here by checking out the All Things Kawaii blog. So much cuteness I might burst!
