Those who follow ITALIANBARK with the newsletter already know. This Christmas there are big news on the blog, the Pink Dog decided to celebrate in a different way this year.

Since you really come from lots of different Countries (this above the blog’s my Analytics map), the dog will take you to celebrate different Countries as well, four places that for one reason or the other belong to him. With many images and original gift ideas, but above all with one surprise for you from each one of the four destinations.

At end of the post you will know how to receive it  🙂

Today we start from really far away: let’s go to Japan!




Asatte Japan


Chi segue ITALIANBARK tramite newsletter già lo sa. Per questo Natale ci sono grandi novità nel blog, il cagnetto ha deciso di festeggiare in un modo diverso quest’anno.

Il blog è letto da davvero un sacco di Paesi diversi (quella che vedete sopra è la mappetta di Analytics), e anche lui vi porterà a festeggiare in quattro Paesi molto diversi, che per un motivo o per l’altro gli appartengono. Con tante immagini ma anche con idee regalo, ma soprattutto con una sorpresa per voi da ognuna delle quattro destinazioni. Alla fine vi spiego come riceverla e di cosa si tratta 🙂

Oggi partiamo da molto lontano, andiamo in Giappone!

Original Xmas gift ideas from Japan




ONE || Kaki flower vase : the nearly flat vase is made from plastic and comes in a round shape that looks great when “hanging” in the air on a mirror or window

TWO || Tsukimi : designed by Kengo Kuma, the Tsukimi is minimalist is a typically Japanese way and is like a more stylish version of Lego. They use the classic Japanese material of wood, in this case, Japanese cedar, harvested ecologically from a village in Nagasaki Prefecture

THREE || Beer Foamer Stick : in Japan, having a head on your beer is always seen as a good thing . But getting a good foamy sud is hard when you are pouring from a can or bottle. This Beer Foamer Stick is an easy way to ensure you get that straight-from-the-tap beer experience wherever you are

FOUR || House for Chopsticks : made by Saga Prefecture’s Hizen Yoshida pottery, a kiln with a history of 400 years, this unique set at first appears to be a small white porcelain house.

FIVE || Kaki flower vase : the nearly flat vase is made from plastic and comes in a round shape that looks great when “hanging” in the air on a mirror or window

SIX || HONO electic candle light : designed by Chiaki Murata, it looks like it has a real flame in the tube, but it’s really an LED light that flickers in the wind, just like the real thing
