As such one will find the most extraordinary fashion, foods, gadgets, toys and other items. This is due to a combination of creativity, out-of-the-box thinking, as well as one of Japan’s most interesting dualities: having a conservative society, while finding points of extreme as outlets to channel self-expression. 

If we take fashion as an example, the dress code is very conservative. Men and women are expected to wear suits with subtle colors to the office. It is almost a uniform to some extent. However, during the weekends you will find many Japanese wearing cutting edge fashion, borderline avant-garde. This applies to almost any facet of Japanese lifestyle. Original ice cream flavors like Garlic, or gadgets with niche functions you couldn’t imagine. All these make Japan one of the best places to find unique and original gifts. Anyone who visits Japan is compelled to go return home with a souvenir that ends up being the talk of the day.
