With the coronavirus pandemic still ongoing, people have resorted to remote ways of interacting with each other. And thank goodness do we live in the Digital Age; checking up on your loved ones is just a few clicks or taps away!
That being said, there’s a certain charm that snail mail will always have, and now is a more perfect time than ever to send a handwritten message to those faraway, and maybe attach a little gift or two.
Enter Studio Ghibli’s new Ohashi no Tegami (roughly translated to Chopstick Letters): a pair of Ghibli-themed chopsticks neatly packaged in a slim box that doubles as both a letter and envelope. They come in three themed designs which you can see below: Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki’s Delivery Service!
A neat little tutorial and overview of the product can be seen below:
Each message section inside the box even comes with a cute little illustration on the side to match the featured character!
Sending chopsticks to loved ones is a nice way to have your presence felt at every meal, even though you might not be able to physically be there in person. They’re priced at a reasonable 1,430 yen (US$13.65) each — from Donguri Kyowakoku stores and online.
