Japanese people usually love to buy this souvenir for their family and friends when they visit Tokyo from other prefectures,and it’s easy to give away because of the cakes in individually wrapped.

I have just had 3 boxes of Tokyo Banana confiscated at Perth airport as they are considered a prohibibitve product due to the lack of information about the manufacturing process and ingredients ie do they contain uncooked banana. If anyone has any information about this can you please let me know as I wish to take this matter further. I cannot see that these cakes can be of any risk but need to obtain more information. Has anyone else in Australia encountered this same problem?

Many thanks………Fiona

I sympathize with you.
Tokyo Banana contains banana paste inside, not a fresh banana.

Yeah I too had my Tokyo Banana confiscated at Coolangatta airport.
I was pissed off, as I have brought them in many times.
I gues the quarantine staff had them for lunch.
It sucks big time.

Woooo… I’m going to Tokyo in May and wold love to try this.

May I know where can I find it?

I’m not sure if anyone is still reading those comments but Mel, when you go to Tokyo you can normally get them from major department stores or even at the airport.

For those of you who’s Tokyo banana got confiscated, that really sucks!! What’s ironic though, is that the bananas used for the banana custard are apparently from Australia.

Yes I just had 3 boxes of Tokyo Bananas confiscated at Cairns airport.

Australian travellers should be very upset with this! You can buy carcinogenic garlic or prawns throughout Australia but cannot bring in processed, packaged snack.

What a joke!
