for our full and long list of Oriental Props for Hire
This page has a 'curated selection' of props (from our main site) that we consider can be utilised for a Japanese Themed Event. Be it it a party, TV, Film, photo shoot or Tokyo Olympics celebration event. Japanese themeing is going to be harder than Chinese as the main characteristics of a Japanese Theme are 'Architectural and Interior Design' plus Garden/Outdoor space Design as opposed to more straightforward identifiable objects. A simple guide is to try and work around Black, White and Green as principle colours. Natual bamboo, both stems and foliage work sympathetically.
If you do not see here what you are looking for, please contact us, we have contacts to procur specific items or may be able to manufacture props and decoration specifically for your occasion.
