●Kaki-Gori Machine (Ice Shaver)

Everyday hot isnt it?

When it is hot, I like to have some cold things such as iced tea or ice cream.
One of my favorite is Kaki-gori; shaved ice with syrup.

Shaved Ice with Matcha, Red Beans and Milk

My favorite flavor is strawberry milk!
It is tasty- sweet and cold, I can feel cooler even in a hot place.

Japan has some cute self-ice shaving machines :)

Japanese sweets are very cute and high quality, especially Jonama sweets:

They need excellent techniques! They all are amazing, and you may want to bring back to your hometown as Omiyage.

However, they are raw sweets and need to keep warm. They also are short lasting, so are not good for Omiyage.

Now, how about Hi-gashi?

Hi-gashi is dry and keeps relatively longer than other Japanese sweets.
They are made of Japanese traditional sugar and flour, and the designs are all cute!

For autumn

looks like bento (Lunch box)!


I am sure that you will be surprised the real ones, because they are not only cute but also very small!

Im Back!

Hi everyone,

Long time no see!
I need to tell you all, I am now in Japan!
Last month I came back to Japan, and started new life here.
We, I and my daring, were discussing about it for months and we decided to move to Japan ;)

We needed to do a lot of things so I had no time to write articles, but now I start blogging here again!

As Im in Japan, I hope I can help you something to get. Feel free to contact me via comment or Contact Me form.

Now i am thinking of posting more kinds of Japanese products like Otaku things (Figure, Artbook etc)

Hope you like them.
