MAY PROMOTION 2015

Traditional Boys’ Day is celebrated on May 5th, and now it is called Children’s Day…
honoring our sons, grandsons or your favorite little guy with the gift of a koi flag, a Kabuto (helmet) or a young warrior doll.

We have enlarged our children’s section to include bento boxes, cute chopsticks,
plastic and porcelain dishware in adorable designs, and lots of origami folding papers.

Mother’s Day, which is May 10, is just around the corner…
How about a new Tiger or Zojirushi rice cooker or even better, a new thermos or thermal lunch pail to take to work?
As the weather becomes warmer and the days longer, June signals invitations
to bridal showers, weddings, anniversaries and summer evening soirees.

Obon is around the corner as well as our summer festival Nisei Week, which will be celebrating 75 years in Little Tokyo.
We have new gift sets, serving bowls and platters, sake and tea sets, and of course, Gold Imari plates,

Rafu Bussan, Inc.

There is history and tradition in the store itself. Rafu Bussan is a combination of the words "Rashogiri" an old name for Los Angeles, from which came "ra" and "fu" meaning prefecture. The word "bussan" means product. The store found its beginnings before World War II when Yuko Tanaka and Junichi Onishi founded Rafu Bussan in Gardena, California. During World War II, Mr. Tanaka was sent to an internment camp and after the war, they started the business up again delivering items such as rice, tea, rice bowls and chopsticks to the Japanese in Orange County and the South Bay communities. In 1958, Kiyoshi "Skip" Kawaratani and his wife purchased Mr. Onishi's share of the business and later, Mr. Tanaka's interest as well. Rafu Bussan continues to perpetuate Japanese housewares and gift items today.
