Interesting Fact : Japan

“Omiyage”’ is the Japanese word for souvenir, although the concept of omiyage has a more nuanced significance than its direct translation. Omiyage is a souvenir that is purchased for others, rather than yourself. Specifically, it is a gift that you buy for your work colleagues, family and friends after returning from a trip. The gift often represents something unique and specific to the place you have visited, and is wrapped in a brightly coloured box. Bringing back omiyage is a sign of respect and appreciation for those you left behind whilst abroad.
