Although it is a little bit pricier, but the quality and design are great.

The next idea about Japanese souvenirs is traditional clothes. Yukata or simple kimono for summer made of thin fabric, usually cotton or synthetic. You can bring yukata as souvenirs, both for yourself or as gifts. It is really easy to find yukata sets in stores around Japan, especially in tourist areas as Asakusa and Akihabara. There is yukata set which contains a yukata, an obi, a yukata string / himo and woodan sandals called geta. The yukata sets are great souvenirs for kids and adults.
