When was the last time you shopped in the deli section in a department store in Japan? As you are browsing, did the colorful foods caught your attention, especially the cakes? Yes, cakes (and cake shops) are one of the things that you should pay special attention to as you do your shopping in Japan. Their wide variety of types, colors, tastes, etc are all great enough to capture your eyes.
Fujiya (不二家) – one of the largest cake shops in Japan – has been selling one of the series of their cakes for 1000yen only. I got a chocolate one 2 weeks ago after work. To my surprise, except for the cake, I was also given a plate for souvenir so that’s free!
