Don’t miss seeing Japanese “Kawaii”
As you wander through the shop curtain you will see lots of little products with traditional Japanese patterns such as a pouch, handkerchief, or lipstick-case all lined up. Most of them are made in Japan and they make for the perfect souvenir. The most recommended is the beckoning-cat or Kompeito (small, colorful, sugar balls,) which is a product with the motif of a beckoning-cat. This was produced by “Kinjo Centrair Supporters”—female students at Kinjo Gakuin University. Go to see the beckoning-cat that brings good luck and grab a little happiness in the shop!
In collaboration with Centrair and Souvenir Corp., we developed two products based on our wish to make Centrair souvenirs that will appeal to young girls. These products are Beckoning-cat Kompeito featuring a local product— the beckoning-cat, and Centrair Stars whose concept is: stars gathered by pilots. They have both been a big hit at Soramise and at the school festival at Kinjo Gakuin University.
Put Japanese books on your bookshelf
When you think of the most difficult language, you may think instantly of Japanese. Japanese culture is gaining popularity and these days many people choose Japanese paperbacks as souvenirs. Go visit the Airport Book Store to feel another aspect of Japanese culture. Even if you cannot read the language, bring home a Haruki Murakami novel in Japanese. Your intelligence will shine on your bookshelf!
Sushi shaped erasers:
When thinking about Japan, the first thing that comes to mind is sushi! Sushi-shaped erasers look so real you may even want to eat it! Here you can buy this popular eraser, which incorporates a sophisticated, Japanese technique. Bring it back as a souvenir not only for yourself but also for your near and dear ones. And do remind them not to eat it!
The orld-famous, Japanese star Hello Kitty
Cartoon Character Merchandise:Hello Kitty Japan
There are plenty of Hello Kitty goods that you can only get in Japan. In addition, you will also find other Sanrio characters at the store here. Hello Kitty goods and accessories make for good souvenirs and all girls will be happy to receive Sanrio goods. We especially recommend souvenirs such as the Nagoya version goods and the Kitty soft-toy that’s wearing a Japanese Kimono.

Shrimp Rice Crackers:Ebisenbei No Sato
Ebi Senbei is a popular snack made from shrimp. Ebi Senbei No Sato or Shrimp Senbei Land houses many different kinds of senbei such as octopus senbei and squid senbei. You can even taste these to find the kind of senbei you like. All of these are very delicious and you will not be able to stop tasting! Keep in mind that you shouldn’t eat too much.

Gifts and Souvenirs:Centrair Omiyagekan
Do you have anything you’ve forgotten to buy before leaving Japan? We recommend stopping by Omiyage-Kan and getting some Azuki-sando (sweet, red-bean paste sandwich) flavored Kit Kat. You can only get it in the Tokai area and is a must try at least once. There are also classic items from Japan here e.g., Unagi-pie, Nagoyan, and Jagarico. If you have any empty space in your suitcase, plug those gaps with souvenirs from Japan and give them to your family and friends back home.
