Imagine...

... a box with no apparent way to open it, yet if you know the secret – you can. One box might take 4 steps, another 54. Now imagine a store with not a couple, a few, or even a dozen – but nearly 100 of these amazing Japanese puzzle boxes.

... a carved wooden jaguar head decorated with over 50,000 beads, each individually placed, forming intricate patterns. An art form perfected by the Huichol Indians of Mexico.

... a tiny basket, so tightly woven that they say it can hold water. Such are the baskets of the Wounaan Indians of Panama. 

... a sculpture that is half giraffe, half gazelle and just so happens to be purple and orange. This is the whimsical work known as Alebrijes to the people of Oaxaca, Mexico. 

... a gold lacquer vase that took a master craftsman over a month to complete. Or a jade sculpture that took 3 months. Or a tiny bottle with a portrait painted on the inside

Imagine these items and thousands more, each with a story, waiting to be discovered.

See our Scroll Paintings - The art of the Chinese scroll painting dates back at least 4,000 years.  This art form is considered by many people as the highpoint aesthetically speaking during the cultural history of China civilization.  The Chinese use special brushes and inks to create calligraphy, which are the same tools used for the scrolls.

View our Bento Boxes - Just as you can order take-out in the United States, in Japan, you can take out food for lunch or dinner called Bento.  The bento is stored and sold in boxes, thus the name, Bento Box.  This take away style is very popular and can be found just about anywhere in train stations, convenience stores, theaters, shopping areas, vending machines, and so on.  For instance, if you were to buy a ticket to take a bullet train, you can either buy Bento boxes to take with you on the train or relax and wait for a vendor to come to you.
