Last, but not least here are some souvenirs that I bought during my last trip this month:
My Maneki Neko collection is growing bigger and bigger! Don’t ask me how many I have by now, I can’t count them anymore! *g*
Sakura-themed Maneki Neko that move with the power of (sun)light! So cute! And cherry blossom room sprays!
I love to buy good luck charms, wishing plaques and whatnot at temples and shrines!
Much cuter than the usual type of Daruma, don’t you think?
A handmade decoration fan of the Neputa Festival in Hirosaki.
And lots of other things.
What you see here is only about 20% of what I bought. Yeah, I’m kind of crazy about souvenirs. I do save a lot of money and don’t spend much in daily life, but when I go traveling I explode! *g*
And I’m truly turning Japanese as souvenirs also include food!
Each region has their own special KitKat flavor that you only can buy there. I grabbed the ones that are limited to Hokkaido and Tohoku, of course.
Haven’t tried them yet, so I can’t say anything about the taste!
As I don’t really live close to Tokyo, I also grabbed something limited to Tokyo when changing Shinkansen at Tokyo Station! Usually I prefer the famous “Tokyo Banana”, but I’ve never tried the little “Witch Oven” thingies and I have to admit they were truly yummy!
And of course I also bought a lot of sakura products! The cherry blossom donuts you see in the picture are so delicious!!!
I also bought sakura tea and jam! The jam is yummy as well. Have yet to try the tea!~
I hope I got you into travel mode now!?! Don’t you feel that spring in Japan is a great time to come to Japan and travel?
Thanks a lot for reading!~
