I was born in and spent five years of my childhood living in Japan (the last stint from age 9-12.) This map of Tokyo (which I think is actually meant to be a piece of wrapping paper) hangs in our living room and shows the hospital I was born in.

Japanese glass wind bells (furin), hanging in our dining room windows. They make the most *un*annoying wind chime sound ever – delicate and lovely.
