Omiyage おみやげ

O.K. So as most of you who actually read my blog probably know I'm moving to Japan in 2 weeks to teach English. It is custom there to give people gifts (Omiyage) when you are new to an area, or are returning from a trip. Since I'll be new to the area I want to bring some gifts. I recently took a trip to NYC and bought a bunch of great stuff to give to my boss, coworkers, friends neighbors ect. I plan on getting more but as of now here's what I have:

5 IHeartNY Shirts
An Authentic New York Yankees Hat
A IHeartNY Hand Bag
A Crystal New York Skyline

I want to get a few more things before I leave and I'll get them next trip I take to get my visa.
