In Japan it is customary to give monetary gifts to show appreciation to someone using these pouches called gratitude envelopes.
This is a more sophisticated way to give a tip or gift to someone.
However, while tipping is not common in Japan anymore, people of class still prepare some money in advance in these envelopes to hand over at the hotel for example.
More commonly, people receive these envelopes during birthdays and at the New Year celebrations.
This original design has a cute cat pattern.
