Hey there,
I'm heading to Japan in March (not long now!!!!!) and I'm starting to think of presents I can get myself and other people to bring back, and was just wondering if anyone knew of anything specific that they couldnt bring back (other than the obvious live animals/plants).
The objects I'm wondering about are hand held fans, nick nack from temples/shrines/ (are these normally hand made?), green tea leaves, spices.
I dont really want to spend a bit of money on some nice stuff to have it taken away from me at the airport =(.

Thanks in advance!

It is up to the customs in your country, not Japan.
Check out their official website which should have a list of prohibited items to be brought into our country.

Here's a link to the AQIS website which should answer all of your questions.
