Japanese pottery & other cool gifts

One of the coolest things I discovered in Japan was the pottery. It is beautiful and can be incredibly well priced. Also, you can find pieces that have a museum quality to them or the timeless look of porcelain. When you go into the shops you will see stacks of bowls, plates, cups in all sorts of colors and textures. There are square shapes or round. Rough surface or smooth. The easiest and most fun thing to do is just enjoy the experience. Take it all in and when something jumps out at you, they wrap it up for you in a way I've never experienced before. It will be snug and ready to fill that spot in your luggage that is available since you only brought one travel guide. If you can't make it to Japan, you can still experience some of the beautiful pottery by reading this interesting column....
