This is a quick blog I set up after a tipsy discussion about the fantastic concept of omiyage. I'd like to introduce the idea of omiyage to the UK, and show the kind of gifts we receive where I work...
Amaaazing omiyage from Japan!!It looked like a cake…but actually, if you pour hot water over these manju-like-shapes, they turn into soup! This was delicious.
Chocolates from a hotel down the road (^^)
Yummy cookies from Edinburgh
抹茶 ＋ 餅 ＋ あんこ ＝ 幸せ
I’m not even sure what this was…but it was chewy, sweet and pretty good.
Oops. I forgot to add these yummy cookies from Sardinia.
香港からのおみやげ ・ パンダのクッキー！！
We all love ebi-senbei :)
