From Japan with Love: 8 Accessories for the Seasoned Traveler

Justine Hand January 27, 2017

Paragons of the minimal home where absolutely nothing is extraneous, the Japanese have a knack for marrying beauty, function, and efficiency. Inspired by this aesthetic, we rounded up nine elegantly compact accessories for the world traveler.

Sasawashi Room Slippers Japan

Above: Made from a blend of Japanese paper and fibers from the Kumaza plant, these Sasawashi Room Slippers are durable and lightweight; $67 at Rikumo.

Unnurella umbrella Japan

Above: Those of us who have hastily grabbed a travel umbrella off a street vendor know that cheap umbrellas barely last through a single rainstorm. Not so the Unnurella. Made from dense but still lightweight fabric, this umbrella (at least according to the manufacturer) is sturdy and completely waterproof; $148 from Japan Trend Shop.

Japanese wood leather folding travel hanger

Above: For style on the go, this Leather Lace Hanger is made of wood leather; ¥3,240 ($28).

convertable canvas bag backpack Japan indigo

Above: Made by Stitch & Sew, a company based in Osaka, the versatile Convertible Canvas Back Pack can morph from pack, to tote, to sling; $220 at Rikumo.

leather cable wrap travel

Above: Though it’s actually made in Taiwan, Green Room’s Leather Cable Wrap is a favorite among stylish Japanese travelers who like to keep their cords neat and compact; £12  ($15) from Native & Co.

Muji travel neck pillow blue

Above: Naturally Muji offers many convenient accessories for the world traveler. Their versatile Cotton Well-Fitted Neck Cushion (here in blue) also unhooks to lay flat; $24.50.

midori travel passport book Japan

Above: By Traveler’s Co. Japan, the leather-bound Traveler’s Notebook and Traveler’s Passport Holder provides an elegant means for keeping a record of your travels; $49 and $45 respectively at Kolo.

Binchotan Charcoal Eye Mask

Above: Eliminate red-eye with a purifying Binchotan Charcoal Eye Mask; $24 from Natala Natala.
