Four things I miss about Japan other than Fashion

1.  Japanese Vending Machines

Whenever I go to Japan, I always end up getting random drinks from their vending machine.  Other than Pocari Sweat, I have never tried something I didn’t like.  My favorite among the drinks are their coffee in a can, they’re quite warm too.

2.  Marion Crepe in Harajuku

The first time I have tried the Marion Crepe in Harajuku, it was love.  I love their Crepes since its very creamy and my favorite flavor is the blueberry.  I almost always buy a crepe here when I visit Harajuku.  It’s like a tradition I have rather than getting a coffee, I get a crepe.


3.  Calbee Chips

A friend of mine from Yokohama introduced me to Calbee snacks, she said that if I tried them I will be hooked.  And you know what, she was right.  Before I left Japan my luggage was filled with Calbee snacks with different flavor – seaweed, cheese, original, etc.  I can’t get enough of these chips, I think I might need to go back to Japan just to get these.

4.  Starbucks – Green Latte and Sakura Macaron combo

While I was waiting for the rain to stop at the Parco mall, I decided to go to Starbucks and check out what ‘special’ food they had.  And ‘Tadah’ they have Green tea Latte and Sakura Macaron.  I really loved their Green Tea latte at Starbucks, I wish they had it every where else too.  I can go without the macaron but the Green Tea latte is definitely a must have.

I think I may need to go back to Japan as I miss it very much. I could stay at a nearby hotel in Tokyo to enjoy and experience these four things all over again.
