Travel Souvenirs from Around the World: Tokyo, Japan

While we’re always on the quest to find tasteful and original souvenirs to bring home, every once in a while, there’s an item so kitsch that it begs for an impulse purchase.
Sumo Wrestler souvenir
This sumo wrestler comes from Oriental Bazaar, a multi-level souvenir shop on Omotesando, in the Harajuku area of Tokyo. The extended belly and matching man boobs frozen in a gravity-defying pose were difficult to resist.

Other Travel Souvenirs from Around the World: Seoul, Jbeil (Byblos), Big Island Hawaii, Dubai, Provence, Tahiti, Montmartre/Paris.
