What a wonderful experience I had discovering Okaki rice crackers! I enjoyed them all but will try to elaborate on each flavor. 1.SEAWEED ROLL - the high quality nori brings a very strong sushi flavor. Tasty! 2. CHARBROILED SAVOR - these are rather tasteless, but ha...(more)

I enjoyed the slight sweetness of this traditional cracker. They are very fresh and crunchy and go well with Hibiki-an teas! :)

Sakura Monaka has a genmai smoky roasted smell and is stuffed with bean paste. In my opinion the filling looks a bit different than in the picture, it is not as pink and hardly tastes like anything. It might be popular with somebody who prefers bean paste texture. I app...(more)

This confectionary is definitely in my top 3 at Hibiki-an! Even though it is "just" sugar, the way it melts on your tongue is very special. So delicate! PS: There are some pieces already missing in my photo, the box was stuffed. :)

Very thin and crunchy crackers, what a treat! I preferred the brown Genmai senbei, they were pleasantly sweet and addictive. The green Matcha senbei are also good.

Conpeitoh are so cute! I was surprised how tiny they are, but have to say they lasted quite a while. The smallest blue ones are very interesting - a combination of salty and sweet. I was skeptical at first, but they are actually good! The brown ones were my favorite...(more)

Delicious! This is a chewy type of candy. The matcha flavor hits you right at the beginning and won't leave you for a while! Not too sweet, liked it a lot.

I was intrigued to try this Japanese plum, but as much as I normally like all fruit, this is unfortunately nothing for my European taste buds. I really tried hard to understand the flavor, even gave it a second chance the next day, but it just doesn't work for me. But t...(more)

I was positively surprised by these Kuzumochi! I love the silky chewy texture and the subtle sweetness. I enjoyed it either with tea or as a small dessert after dinner. I have already reordered it, my favorite of all spring season sweets!

I have just opened my first pack of this potato snack and I'm very pleasantly surprised. I'm a big fan of sweet potatoes but never ate anything which could be considered confectionary. They are mildly sweet and I can't stop reaching for more and more! Delicious! But pl...(more)

These wafer rolls are fantastic! They look exactly like in the picture. Very fresh and crunchy, not too sweet. I appreciate that each roll is packed separately, therefore it's easy to hide it in your purse for a quick treat on the go. Plus you don't have to worry about ...(more)
