Tea with AK71: Cute snack from Japan.

Cute packaging:

Strawberry flavoured chocolate snack. Cute!

From where? Japan.

Now, it is in my tummy. Burp.

Hey ! This looks so similar to the pork buns at my local supermarket when I was working in Japan :

Hi blauereiter,

Oh my, they look too cute to eat! At JPY55 each, they are reasonably priced too especially with the JPY having plunged some 20% in the last few months. At today's exchange rate, about 66c or so.

However, you took the photo in 2009. Price is probably higher now. :(

Which city in Japan did you see these? I have never seen them before. :)

Hello Mr AK41,

I agree, those piggies are too cute to be eaten !

This was at the supermarket near my house in Tanashi in West Tokyo, a suburban area. :]

Hi blauereiter,

Ah, in the suburbs. Actually, there are many surprises to be found in the suburbs.

OK, I will make a mental note. Thanks. :) said...

Hi Elsie,

It is a good time to visit Japan what with the JPY so much cheaper compared to a year ago. Good on you. :)

If you provide a link to your photos in the comments section here, I will definitely go take a look.

If you would like to email a few photos to me, see if you could minimise their size to 50KB per photo. I will gladly put them up here to share with other readers.

Bon voyage! :) said...

Yes sir noted about file size ! Yup timed to enjoy cherry blossoms - keeping fingers n toes crossed that its bloom time. Like for all things beautiful one can't time it :)) cheers
