daruma bento & kamameshi bento

daruma bento

daruma bento

I went to Nagano on the Shinkansen last weekend. I had Ekiben(Daruma bento &
Kamameshi bento) both ways(going and coming) on the Shinkansen.
They were made with tasty riches from the mountains like bamboo shoot,
shiitake mushrooms, etc. It’s always fun to eat Ekiben on the trains.

Daruma bento comes in a Daruma dolls. Daruma dolls are hollow and round Japanese wish dolls with no arms or legs,modelled after Bodhidharma.



Kamameshi bento comes in a rustic earthenware pot.

Ekiben (Railway boxed meal) are a specific type of bento boxed meals, sold on
trains and train stations in Japan.

Ekiben containers can be very attractive: made from plastic, wood, or ceramic.
Many train stations have since become famous for their especially tasty ekiben,
made from local food specialties.

girls-only convinert store

it’s DEMO

Snacks, sweets, cosmetics, ZAKKA, music, accessories, cute wear & something…
Yes, I cannot live without them.(^_-)*

The “it’s DEMO” girls-only online convenient store knows what girls really want so well!.
When you feel like getting something cheap & cute, or just want to feel nice and mellow by looking at those KAWAII stuff, you just go to “it’s DEMO” or “PLAZA STYLE”. Well, I know there are few more I adore, but can’t name them right now.
You would often find yourself at those colorful & delightful shops as you enjoy looking around.
And at the end, you just can’t help bringing something to the cash register!

sandwich at fruit shop

Sandwich at fruit

There are some famous “fruit shops” in Tokyo. They specialize in fruits that are delicious and as beautiful as jewels (and expensive)!

However the Japanese have a traditional long-lasting custom that we give gifts to each other at every occasion. This is the shop we often go to buy something for those occasions.

Most of these old established fruit shops have fruit parlours upstairs where you may find many colourful and delicious menus using those fruits the shops are proud of.

I bet many people can’t resist this temptation very often. One of the most irresistible is a fruit sandwich which shows the sides of all fruits sliced thinly stacked up inside sparkling like a jewellery box. They also told me that they make this sandwich with sliced fruits and sour cream inside with lemon buttered breads. Please try one of these if you are tempted!

    MOS Burger offers a wide variety of unique and original MOS burger, as well as local specialities. Menu and styles might have changed but the MOS policy and passionate commitment to creating delicious,quality burgers has never changed.

    My favorite combination is Spicy Mos cheeseburger,Spicy chili dog, French fries and Onion rings with New England clam chowder soup and minestrone.

    There are also items called “rice burgers”. The buns are made of rice, and instead of patties,they have cooked shrimps or pork cutlets with miso sauce.
