What comes to your mind when you hear "cute things"?

Flowers? Babies? Dogs? Confectionery?


I believe that there are all sorts of cute things in the world.

In general, however, small things are cute, aren't they?


About 1000 years ago, a Japanese woman Sei Shonagon wrote about the cute things in her essay "Makura no  Soshi." In that essay, she wrote that "all small things are cute things." The sensitivity of human beings seems to have been same for 1000 years.


In Japan Design Store, the small things are the chopstick rests. We offer various types of chopstick rests and all of them are cute!


Today, let us introduce the collection of cute small chopstick rests.
