69. Food from Tokyo


Here's the first batch of pictures..you can expect posts like this throughout the next few weeks. I'm uploading all my pictures at random - for now here are some of Tokyo! More specifically - FOOD.



I love collecting stamps in my passport. Got 4 pages filled from this single trip!




I was always told that things in Japan were really expensive but when I went there I actually found that prices were more or less the same as Canada. Well at least the clothes were. Restaurant food prices weren't too bad either -- & their food is delicious.
Then I realized what was most expensive..their candy and snacks. Everything there is really nicely wrapped. I think they put more effort into the packaging than the food itself..I mean it all tasted good but not exceptional, or worth the price for that matter.





I saw a LOT of interesting unique snacks/candy. Each store set up glass cases to show the inside of each box. I should've taken pictures of all the different kinds I saw but I was too overwhelmed lol. I wanted to buy one of each but too bad they were all $15 or more per box and take up so much room in my luggage. We only bought a few boxes..mostly to give away to our relatives in HK.

  1. You made an already hungry person even hungrier. If the Japanese know 1 thing, they know how to make food LOOK AMAZING.

    I look forward to the other 1187 photos.

    i think it has to do with these sweets because real japanese food isnt even fatty.
