Taiyaki is a Japanese fish-shaped cake which we’ve had introduced before.
The most common filling is red bean paste that is made from sweetened azuki beans. These are bite-size Taiyaki from “Sea Bream” Bluno.

They are very easy to eat, and you can’t stop eatting until you finish them.
They have chocolate and custard flavor except azuki beans.

kawaii Managa 3 : Yotsuba&! (Yotsubato!)

Yotsubato 1 (Yotsubato (Graphic Novels))

Yotsuba&! (as known in Japanese “Yotsubato!”) is a very popular manga series by Kiyohiko Azuma. Not only Japanese girl, many people love them.

Yotsuba 2 (Yotsuba)

Yotsuba is a main character. She is 5 years old young girl. This story are depicted her daily summer holiday life with her father and neighborhoods.

Yotsubato 3 (Yotsubato (Graphic Novels))

Most of Japanese people love summer vacation at the best in a year, so I think it might be why this manga is attractive to Japanese.

Some of products born from Yotsuba&! are also released.

リボルテックダンボー・ミニ Amazon.co.jp ボックスバージョン 【初回版】

This is “Danbo” (cardboard robot). Danbo was represented on the story that Yotsuba and her friends made a robot with cardboard on summer homework (incruded in vol. 6).

Amazon co.jp reproduced Danbo with their delivery box. It’s funny idea.
