Before I proceed, I’ll to make sure you know that “素晴らしい” means “Awesome,” at least according to Google. Typically, when making visits, especially journeys that entail crossing seas, you are often expected to bring something with you; a little gift would do, no matter how small.

Thanks to globalization, it is easy to come across items, especially food items, common to a specific locality in another locality; however, most of what is in locality B might not be as authentic as that in locality A. also, there are still things that are common in one part of the world over the other, and that’s what makes this gift guide ideal.
In this guide, I try to come up with a list of things familiar to America and not Japan; I have a definitive guide of American gifts for Japanese friends.
Unique American Gifts for Japanese Friends
Classic and unique American candy is one highly sorted-out gift most people in Japan would fancy having.
There’s a lot of candy in Japan, but they’ll fancy some from America, which is unique to America.Available Here
One of America’s biggest export to the world is our Football, the Super Bowl; if it’s a case that your receiver fancies the Super Bowl, even if it is for the halftime show, then a nice baseball cap featuring their favorite team would do. Even if they don’t have a team, you can pick a pretty iconic team for them, and don’t forget to share why you chose that team.Available Here
As I stated in the intro, Globalization has made brands, products, and items available worldwide, and Starbucks is one of those brands that has broken into Japan.
You can put a smile on your Japanese friends by getting them a Starbucks gift card. Let them add some style to their early Monday coffees.Available Here
Some American postcards would do; get them a pack of cards with pictures of some iconic structures and buildings in the state, the statue of liberty, and the white house; there are just so many places they’ll love to see.Available Here
5. A bottle of American whiskey
Yes, it is an ideal gift for your Japanese friends; if they are your host, I have some suggestions for a Japanese host.
This would make more sense with the American whiskey above, but if you decide not to go that way, these are some nice whiskey glasses to have in any household; they are beautiful, and they celebrate the American flag.Available Here
Another superb gift for every non-American would be a local cookbook, many meals are unique to the US alone, and a cookbook of this nature can help your dear Japanese friend prepare some excellent American dishes from the comfort of their kitchen.Available Here
Like the cookie, this is uniquely American produce and something your dear receiver might fancy. If you both are to see the movies together, she’ll be stepping into the cinema with her unique popcorn.Available Here
Monopoly is such a unique game; it holds a truckload of knowledge; it was created in America in 1903 or thereabout.
A lovely gift for your Japanese friend would be a monopoly that is USA themed; I mean, the characters and drawings are primarily American buildings and notable locations.Available Here
10. American Hot Sauce
You know how unique American sauce is and how special it is to us; this is another gift for your dear receiver.Available Here
11. Bound Leather Journal
A journal is one thing everyone would love to have. This is one rugged journal. I particularly like the front leather cover, especially as it celebrates our flag with pride. The use case of this journal shouldn’t be over-emphasized; your dear receiver would love this.Available Here
How many American fans are there? Would they love to have our beautiful flags around, the grab this pack for them?Available Here
Your Japanese friend might fancy knowing something about the US; it’s much more than just what they see on the Tv or social media; this atlas would reveal much more to them, pointing out locations, places, and more.Available Here
