Last week we shined our light on one of our favourite online gift resources for the geek-chic set, and in similar fashion, online retailer Japan Trend Shop offers a hodgepodge of rare tech oriented items intended for the Japanese market, miscellaneous gadgets, and some head-scratchers. A good portion of the selection is what we’d call tchotchke-quality, but there’s a notable amount of products from the likes of PlusMinusZero and Elecom to balance your online window shopping experience and keep your design sensibilities happy.

Some of our personal favourites from their selection include: the Hono Electric Candle, the silly-but-amusing USB Air Conditioned Shirt by Kuchofuku, and the Etiquette Checker bad breath and alcohol test. There’s even a section titled, Good Design where items like the coveted (but overpriced) Plus Minus Zero LCD Television is listed. Many of the items seem to have prices that reveal their duty-taxed premium, especially some of the real tech-oriented items. But Japan Trend Shop is worth a peek when you’ve got to hunt down something of more rare and Japanese origin, if only for a chuckle of sending your friend one of these.
