"Farewell My Tokyo" is a unique gift specially designed for expatriates and visitors who are leaving Tokyo. This series of framed artistic images captures the essence of the amazing city and lets you bring a reminder of its colorful street signs, cozy neighborhoods, town landscapes, modern architectures and cultural heritages, all making up a vibrant mix of contemporary and traditional Japanese culture. This product is made using "Pachika", a special paper that becomes transparent when heated. The subtle black outlines on the transparent areas of the craftwork expresses the nostalgia of Tokyo. The craftsman creates each individual piece with skillful control of temperature, pressure, and time during pressing. It is an unprecedented style of expression originated by Ciaolink, a drawing of fine detail landscape as if curved on its surface.
