What is “ami-mation” ?
It is an “Amigurumi” animation video created by illustrator Yosuke Kihara.
“Amigurumi” is a knitted stuffed doll ( knitted is “ami” in Japanese). Using wools in various colors, thickness, patterns or gages, he can create his original amigurumis. It is amazing that a pretty doll is produced with a single string of wool.



Moving and talking amigurumis – check his great “ami-mation” here.

Transforming an ordinary landscape or an indoor snap shot to unique drawings; the “print-paint” was inspired by such an idea.

The lines of “print-paint” are drawn by scratching the surface of an original photo. After coloring in the lines, done!

Yahoo!JP Auctions & Online shopping service


Today, I can share good news about shopping with you, who may have wanted to shop at Yahoo Japan Auctions or other Japanese online shopping sites.

Most Japanese shopping sites do not deal with customers from overseas, but now you can deal with them through “RINKYA”.

After you won a bit or placed an order, “RINKYA” will represent you and complete the deal on behalf of you, then ship the goods to you from where “RINKYA” is based.


For more information, check out their website. Well, I’m so glad that I can now share the info about those very “kawaii” Japanese online shops with you!
