The SHUN GATE gift story
Japan has a long-established culture of giving gifts to friends and acquaintances
as a token of appreciation. There are a number of defined gift-giving seasons
during the year, most notably ochugen (mid-summer) and oseibo (end of year).
Presenting a gift is an expression of kindness and consideration. It is also an
expression of the quintessential essence of Japanese food culture, whereby the
significance of the gift goes beyond the gift itself to encompass the artistry
on display and the generosity that it conveys.
In Okurimono, the SHUN GATE team showcases selected gift ideas that are sure to
appeal to both giver and recipient alike.
