A couple of months ago, the lovely Yuri Kinoshita of Umbo gave me one of these super cute Chirimen bears for my big birthday and since then, he’s been the keeper of my new Mini Cooper keys. Since I love him so much, I thought I’d buy a few to share with our Momo customers. He has movable arms and legs and is so well-made — perfect for adorning a cell phone or as in Japan, a handobaggu. He comes in black or purple and is an appropriate gift for the person with everything ... except a kimono clad bear.

Momo boutique in Seattle’s Japantown is a happy ‘hapa shop’ blending Asian and European influences. Come browse men and women’s clothing, modern and vintage home accents and omiyage — the well-presented gift. Where else can you find a mix of Saint James sailor shirts, antique Chinese cabinets, Cop-Copine frocks, local jewelry and adornments created from kimono fabric? And no forget the Spam. Hapa to it!
