Pocky on Seijin no Hi sounds like a great combination
I almost forgot it was Monday this week, with the trip to Yokohama and it being Seijin no Hi, it just didn’t feel like a typical Monday. There were plenty of people crowding into the convenience stores though, many wearing kimono.
Here are a few treats that were in store.
Nikuman and more. I spotted some takoyakiman (octopus) in this display and decided I had to get one.
A few new drinks in store. This one caught my eye. Anyone tried it?
Melting truffles from Bourbon. Could be a good choice.
Lotte had this new strawberry shortcake chocolate product. Not that original, but a nice bitesize treat.
Meiji bring out two new flavors of chocolate with some interesting wrapper colors. The top one was mango, the bottom one green tea macha.
Some crackers to try. Cheese, mochi and more.
Strawberry bread with a display case. Looked quite good, but I didn't bother to try it. Haven't been eating a lot of bread recently.
Feb 3 is the annual day for Ehoumaki. Each year the idea is that you stand and face a certain direction (different each year) and eat a sushi roll while looking up. Will try and catch some pictures of this on the street if I see any salarymen facing west and eating their sushi roll.
Some Sengoku wasabi. A strong combination.
