Here's a sorta review of some of the omiyage that I've tried. I wish I had prices for you, but sorry, I don't remember anymore. This is Royce's newest flavor, Nama Chocolate. It's a "velvety smooth 'fresh' ganache chocolate, containing at least double the amount of cream usually found in conventional chocolates".
It is melt-in-your-mouth ono. This Baton Cookies is also by Royce'.
It's a good one to bring back for the office because they're 25 individually packed cookies in it.
This is Hokkaido butter.
I ate it on this toast that I made from a loaf that my friend N gave to me. Oishiii!
She got it from Nagoya Ramen and Bakery in Mililani. Thanks N!!
I bought this from a store at the Aomori station. It's called Kamome no Tamago. It's a specialty of the Iwate Prefecture.
There were nine of these individual packs in the box.
It's supposed to resemble a seagull egg.
It has a manju-like white bean paste filling and a white chocolate coating. I liked the taste, but the glaze left a sweet film in mouth that lingered for awhile. I kinda didn't like that.
This is called Hagi no Tsuki and is from the Miyagi Prefecture.
I think there were eight of these in the box.
It had a custard-like filling and a spongy cake outside. It was very refreshing right out of the fridge. I would so buy this again.
I got this from a store in Odaiba, Tokyo.
There were four of these in the box. It had a very dense cheesy filling that seemed over baked. It was not one of my favorites.
I got this da-bomb eyeliner from a Lawson store for around $9.
It looks to be an offshoot of Shiseido.
It has a brush that draws a fine line really well. I looooove it. I tried looking for more at other Lawson stores in Japan, but most were out of them. I even looked in the Lawson store here in Waikiki, but no luck there either.
