Community Spotlight - Margherita

For this community spotlight, you will meet Margherita, a Japan enthousiaste from Italy. Discover in this article why she loves Japan and her experience with Peko Peko Box.

Can you briefly introduce yourself? Any social media we can visit to know more about you?

My name’s Margherita, I’m a Japan lover since I was born, now I live in Sardinia, a beautiful island in Italy. I’m a creative person who loves nature, I love painting and drawing, music and literature. On my Instagram you can find so much about Japan, from my books until my handpainted creations (often inspired right form Japan).

Have you ever been to Japan? If yes, what was the highlight of your trip? If not, where would you like to visit?

Unluckily I have not yet realized my dream to visit Japan but I hope I’ll do it soon, maybe this year would be the right one! I would like to visit Japan from North to South, exploring the main cities like Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka but also getting lost in beautiful historical villages like Shirakawa-go!

What do you like the most about Japan?

Japan fascinates me for every aspect of its culture! I love art, I love food, I love the bright colors of kimono and temples, I love people’s kindness and quietness but also the busy streets and their contrast with the peacefull country side and of course the world of mythology, legends and traditional characters. 

How did you first hear about Peko Peko?

I first hear about Peko Peko from a friend who showed one of your boxes.

What do you like the most about our boxes?

I love your boxes because they allow us to do a full immersion in Japanese culture even if comfortably from our home!

Which item has been your favorite so far?

My favorite item is the Daruma from Takasaki city I found on Spirit of Japan box
