Mark 2018 with the Lucky Bags of Your Dreams, Only at Nihombashi Mitsukoshi


191_01.jpgLucky bags or fukubukuro may have been a staple of the New Year season in Japan for more than a century, but they are also one that has been constantly evolving to match the tastes of the times. As you would expect Nihombashi Mitsukoshi is not content to rest on its laurels and is always on hand to give you something beyond expectation, which is why for New Year 2018 you won't just find lucky bags in store, but "Dream Bags" that package delights you won't find anywhere else.

(64,800,000 yen tax included)

With experiences ranging from entire houses built to your specification and private charter planes, there really is no upper limit to the selection on offer, but towards the more accessible end you will find sumi nagashi, Japanese marbling dyeing experiences that culminate in a completely unique set of yukata and obi finished by artisans with motifs to your taste. As well as the chance for you to have your child's, or group of children's, artwork displayed in the very same art galleries of Nihombashi Mitsukoshi that have been home to the world leaders of the Japanese arts.
