Can you wrap a gift beautifully?
There is a sense of drama when you receive a gift that has been beautifully wrapped. Wrapping is an essential part of gift-giving. You are giving something important, so it must be wrapped well. Japanese department stores, by the way, provide a very elegant gift-wrapping service for any gift you buy there. And I found Tokyu Hands, one of my favorite stores in Tokyo, shows us how to wrap our gift professionally like Japanese department stores do.
“Wrapping ” things is more than a convenience in Japan. It is something to which people give special thought and care.
