I saw this rubber stamp set at Michael's, an arts and crafts supply store. I found it interesting that they did not offer any other nation-themed stamp sets, although it may just be an inventory issue. Yet I think it's important to note the stamps as metonyms for Japan, and the ease of appropriating Japanese culture as "exotic," reproducible decorations for various artistic purposes.
