I am in search of the paper flowers used in Lost in Translation. Also, what are your favorite rad Japanese culture-watch resources, shopping websites, etc?

Pink Tentacle no doubt.

Joi Ito's blog is also quite nice.

As for shopping, there's J-List, plus (but they can't ship a lot of the good stuff like Hot Carpets, alas).

As for the flowers, dunno.

I like Trends in Japan's daily posts.

Here's a handmade paper flower display that is similar.

Post on Ping Mag from 2006 about sakura (cherry blossom) decorations, including some paper ones.

Maybe make your own, with help from etsy?

I'm into this site that highlights street fashion. Lots of cool pics.
