antenna shop in Tokyo

Miyazaki anntena shop3

There are antenna shops from all over Japan in Tokyo. Antenna shops are stores that sell famous local products from different prefectures.
One such shop that I often go to is the Miyazaki Prefecture antenna shop, which is located just outside the south exit of Shinjuku station.

Miyazaki, which is located in the south of Japan, is a rich fruit-growing region so you can easily pick up some delicious fruit at this shop.
There is also an antenna shop from Hokkaido next to the Miyazaki store.
This is a fantastic spot for enjoying foods from various regions of Japan without having to leave Tokyo.

Kumamon Cookies


Yesterday, I went on a trip to Kyushu.
There I discovered a very cute cookie.


It was a cookie based on Kumamoto’s mascot character, ‘Kumamon ‘.


There are both butter and chocolate cookies which have the shape of Kumamon .
They were very cute and I felt sorry for eating them.
