“DECO CHAN” is very popular in Japan right now, I went to Japantown today I saw more then 3 books/ magazines that talks about decochan…

What’s Decochan?

The origin of the name of Decochan is abbreviation of “Decorative a change”. It is a thing (maybe is a craft movement? a hobby?) that decorates your every stuff brilliantly and change them dramatically. Mainly decorate your personal stuff with beads or crystal glasses, sometimes with sweet goodies like this.

What’s Decodenist?

Japanese call the professional of decochan a Decodenist . Decodenist has to acquire all kind of knowledge for decochan and first class skill. And only who qualified by the Japan Decodenist Society could be a Decodenist.
