I got a small tote bag that was limited run.
Also, the very popular tote bag was limited sale at only Matsuya department store in Ginza.
The lovely tote bag is recommended to use when you go out for lunch because your long wallet might be fitted with it. And, its size is easy to use.

One of the latest Pocky flavor is Kasane Matcha, means double green tea.
Crispy greenish biscuit contains stone-mortar grained matcha, and matcha chocolate coated.
I love its good flavor and bitter and sweet taste.
