Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

I hope you’ve been enjoying the Back To School Week giveaways so far! Here’s another one for you.

For fans of cute-kawaii products from Japan, From Japan With Love is a must-see website. Each item is hand-selected by Sofia, the owner, as if she were shopping for a friend. The site lists items ranging from plushies to stationery to bath and body items, and of course a selection of very cute bento boxes and kitchen items.

This is the item that For Japan For Love is going to send to one lucky winner, a girly pink box appropriately named The Pleasure Of Lunch Time.

This is a two-tier box, with a total capacity of 630ml. The lid closes with large, easy to handle clips that holds both tiers securely, and is adorned with the illustration of a dog going for a walk with his bento!

How to enter the From Japan With Love giveaway

Update: This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to everyone for entering! The winner will be announced later this week.

To enter, just leave a comment to this post. The question to answer for this giveaway is - what’s your favorite cute Japanese character? (I anticipate a lot of Hello Kittys, but surprise me.) Or if you don’t know any Japanese ones, what’s your favorite cute-anywhere character?

Be sure to include a valid email address where you can be contacted in the appropriate text box! Your comment must be posted by 23:59:59 EDT (U.S. East Coast Time) (or just before midnight) of Monday, August 23th 2010. One lucky entry will be drawn at random to receive the Pleasure Of Lunch Time box. Good luck!

This is Giveaway No. 4 of Back To School Week. Stay tuned for more throughout the week!

Hazel From Baltimore Md. The bento box is very japanese and I would love to bring it in to work ;)

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

My favorite is the balck and white pigs - Monokuro Boo

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Hello Kitty is a favorite in our house. We also have many bumble bee, ladybug, and monkey characters adorning t-shirts and lunch boxes.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Hmm...my favourite is pikachu...

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

The cutest character ever is *drum roll* Kyo when transformed into a cat (or when angry as a human and depicted with cat ears and tail) in the manga fruitsbasket!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Japan is the land o' kawaii. But my favorite has to be mameshiba. "ねぇ。知ってる?" Those beans say the most random things. After that I also love the man in the Tokyo Metro posters. He's cute but I wouldn't say かわいい.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

I'm not so familiar with Japanese characters, but some of my favorite cute characters (and I'd die to see these on a bento box) are the Smurfs!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

I love a short lived Sanrio character named Nyago. My husband's favorite character is Anpanman.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Domo!!!!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

My all time favorite cute character is popular also in Japan but it is actually Dutch - It's Miffy, known in her native Netherlands as Nijtje and created by the children'd author Dick Bruna.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

I'm pretty partial to Pochacco and Chococat as far as Sanrio goes... Another favorite is the Catbus from Totoro.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

I've always thought Doraemon's really cute.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

winnie pooh, and my childhoods heroes: the Janosch characters of the Little Tiger and the Little Bear!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Crayon Shin-chan!!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

My favourites have got to be Totoro, Keroppi (I have a soft spot for frogs!) and Badtz-Maru.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

favorite cute Japanese character? OMG ! I have too many of them.
Sakura from Cardcaptor would be my best answer. I know her since i was 10
(7 years later i still remember) I also love Luffy D. Monkey from One piece.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

I love Kiki & Lala of Little Twin Stars when I was a little girl and now I adore Keroppi!!!!!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

My favorite cute Japanese character is Salamon. Mostly because she goes with Kari!

I am still a HUGE Digimon fan!! Who care's if I'm too old?

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

I don't really know many Japanese cartoon characters, but Buttercup from the PowerPuff Girls is my all-time favorite cartoon character. She's so tough, completely adorable, and smart!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

I have to say that Terra Panda is one of my favs.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

I like Hello Kitty, and well... pretty much all of the Sanrio characters I've seen.:) I'm not that creative.:) *lol*

Bad Batz Maru

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

We're big fans of Kiki's Delivery Service around our house, our oldest dressed up as Kiki one year. But as far as "cute" characters are concerned, if Kiki doesn't count, I'll go with Jiji, her cat. :)

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Zelda and Link. It's a video game, but I'm a sucker for cute guys that do whatever I tell them to.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Rilakkuma!!!!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

I've loved Domo ever since one of my little students dressed up as Domo for Halloween. She made the costume herself starting with a giant paper bag, and it looked so awesome!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Same with me, I looooooove Hamtaro!!!! XD

Kiki

I love Kiki from Kiki's Delivery Serivce, and her cat. :)
There are so many others, though!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

I LOVE hello kitty. I have a secret collection in my closet. shh, don't tell.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Batz Maru!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Okay, she's not chibi-cute, but my favorite cute character is Chobit, the girl robot. She's sweet :)

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Oh that's a tough one, considering there's a lot of cute Japanese characters. Hmn...but my favourite cute character would have to be With, Dark's familiar from D.N.Angel. With is just the cutest cross between a bunny and...something else. LOL.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

My favorite Japanese character of all time is Pochacco. He's just so cute and lovable!

My favorite Japanese character is Totoro, hands down. He's my hero.

Doraemon comes in a close second...

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

My favourite cute japanese character has to be either Cinnamaroll or Toad from super mario bros, it's a hard choice.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

As someone who LOVES cats I choose Chococat. I also used to really like Pichu back when I watched Pokemon.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From Japan With Love

For me, it is Candy Candy. I followed her cartoons adventures when I was a little girl and still remember the song!
