Hello,

I will leave for Tokyo tomorrow for three days. AFAIK, Japanese have the tradition of bringing omiyage, i.e. small presents from the place visited.

Unfortunately, I am unsure what to bring. Any suggestions?

Hannes.

Thanks, I will take a look.

But is it omiyage (I searched for that one but didn't get a hit) or is it omiyagi?

As far as I know it's omiyage, but I still consider myself a nihongo beginner, so take my words with a grain of salt.

Perhaps something native to the Nagoya region (which I believe you mentioned you are currently residing) might be appreciated. If you're the type of person handy with crafts, some small handmade knicknack can go a long ways as well. Or if you're like me, just buy something that might suit the tastes of the prospective recipient if you know enough about said person(s) beforehand.
