If you break a dish what do you do with the pieces? Toss them in the trash and buy something new? Even if it was your very favorite? Not in Japan we don’t! Repairing what we love instead of throwing it away is a longstanding Japanese tradition. In this episode we’re taking a look at how this tradition lives on, today! We love a history lesson, here at Kawaii International, especially when history is as beautiful as this! Here’s a shining spoiler: there is gold involved.

Kawaii International is a direct link to Tokyo, the most fashion forward city in the world.
On the first and second Friday of every month a new episode is uploaded to our FREE video-on-demand site. Be sure to visit the NHK World YouTube channel for sneak previews and exclusive content!

Born in Japan, Kawaii began as a simple concept of being cute. Now, Kawaii has evolved into a mindset, philosophy, and lifestyle that has become a global phenomenon. Kawaii culture knows no boundaries. No matter your age, race, gender, orientation, or religion, Kawaii culture can be applied to your life.
From our headquarters in Shibuya, our mission is to share the latest trends in fashion and pop-culture celebrating the message of Kawaii culture.
Watch, learn, and create.
Be yourself, be Kawaii!
