Good Souvenirs

Recommended Posts

So yeah, what are some good souvenirs ? What have you bought here in Japan, or anywhere else for that matter, that has been truly appreciated.

 

Alcohol seems like an obvious choice to give to men, but what about women ?

most north americans that I know "just say no to senbe crackers". seaweed and or soya sauce just dont go down with the futsu crowd. If the crowd is some what trendy then give it a shot.

Theres loads of senbe to choose from that doesnt feature seaweed. SOme of the sweet ones with soy sauce and granules of sugar, super hard, are popular with my crowd.

How about souvenirs to bring back to Japan?

 

I always bring lots of chocolate and teas and things from England - always goes down well and a no-brainer.
