Denmark in Japan

 

I have to admit I have a thing for Japan. I love the people, the food, the courteousness, the order, the attention to detail…the list can go on forever.

On a recent trip I was roaming around just looking at whatever caught my eye, and I enjoyed looking at the products at this shop in Kyoto… and then it occured to me that it was Danish design (!). Not that I should have been so surprised, I really enjoy Danish design as well. A lot. But I just didn’t expect to stumble across it just then and there.

By the way, if you are heading towards Kyoto, try to stay some nights in a ryokan, that is an experience that you shouldn’t miss, but if you want to save some $ you can stay really comfortably at a hostel. I stayed at Piece Hostel Kyoto. Awsome place! I totally loved it. It is a friendly, no fuss, squeaky clean place with oh-so-comfy-beds. With friendly and super helpful staff as the cherry on top.

When, I say when and not if, you visit Miami Design District make sure to pay a visit to the new (and the brands largest to date) Jonathan Adler store/showroom. It is such a vibrant, colourful, wonderful store. Makes you happy just wandering around admiring things.
