If you’ve been invited to a Japanese-themed wedding, you may want to give a gift that’s in the same vein as the theme. Perhaps you have been invited to a traditional Japanese wedding ceremony and want to give the typical gift that is expected. There is also the offering of gifts within the families of the bride and groom and this is usually done at a formal dinner on a “more auspicious” day chosen by the Japanese almanac. These gifts are called “Yui-no” or engagement gifts.
A wedding gift for a traditional Japanese wedding ceremony and reception
If you have been invited to a real authentic Japanese wedding, the traditional gift that is given to the newlywed couple is usually in cash. This is what is called Oshugi. The amount you should give will depend on the depth of your relationship with the married couple. The Oshugi you should give is often written on the wedding invitation. If you are in doubt about what amount you should give, a good amount for the couple’s friends is 30,000 yen or $ 250 US dollars.
Gifts for a Japanese themed wedding
A wonderful gift that will be cherished for a long time could be a bonsai tree. A bonsai is not just a thing of beauty, it needs to be taken care of and perhaps this could be an activity that the couple can share to spend quality time together. Another excellent choice would be a full serving set of spoons. They will surely enjoy eating their soup with authentic Japanese utensils and are bound to think of you when they do.
A terrific idea for the couple who appreciates Japanese culture is a gift certificate for their favorite Hibachi or Sushi restaurant. This can be another gift that requires the couple to spend quality time with each other to enjoy it to the fullest. A Daruma doll is thought to be a symbol of protection and good luck in Japan. Typically this doll is given at the start of a new adventure. A sand garden is also another excellent choice for a gift to give at a Japanese-themed wedding. It is thought that laying stones and mopping up sand can calm even the most restless mind and relieve stress. This can be important for a couple as a way to soothe any stressful feelings they experience, as they embark on a life together and encounter the inevitable bumps on the road.
