Electrical appliances

To people overseas, the words "Made in Japan" on an electrical appliance are a status symbol. We are told that when some people give electrical appliances to others as souvenirs, they also give them the receipt as well! On this page, we introduce 5 electrical appliances that are particularly popular as souvenirs overseas. You can use some of these on board aircraft, so they are worth checking out!


Headphones are a popular electrical item at Fa-So-La stores, among overseas visitors and Japanese alike. Recently, noise-canceling headphones that block out external noise have gained popularity. You can buy them and then use them straight away on your flight, instead of the headphones they give you to use. Why not upgrade with new headphones before you depart?

Rice cookers

A lot of Japanese will be surprised to hear that more visitors from overseas than you might think buy Japanese rice cookers to take home as souvenirs. This is particularly true among visitors from Asia (particularly China) where they eat rice as a staple food. We also recommend rice cookers to Japanese who are going to live overseas for an extended period.

Beauty electrical appliances

Beauty electrical appliances that bear the words "Made in Japan" are really popular among women overseas. These products are really well perfected, and they are packed with that refined technology that "Made in Japan" is all about. They are very popular among people who have a strong aesthetic sense. It seems that electric toothbrushes are becoming increasingly popular.

Japanese health equipment has a high degree of precision, which makes it trusted among people overseas. Particularly in China, South Korea and in other Asian countries where age are respected in the local culture, Japanese health equipment is a popular gift for senior citizens. Of course, it doesn’t have to be a present. Many people buy health equipment to use themselves to stay in shape.
