produce here is amazing. And the apples are GIANT.

kitkat. Most likely manjuu flavored, but we’re not sure. We’ve also tried matcha ones. Yum.

My friend makes delicious sushi.

Natto. I’d read about this and decided I needed to try it, although I knew it was known for being gross. But it has a ton of vitamin K2 in it.

It was edible if I mixed it with apple cider vinegar and cashews… but still not nice.

Takoyaki – octopus dough balls. Not really a fan… octopus is too chewy!

Welcome treats at our ryokan… pretty much just flavored, shaped sugar.
